Christmas Stuffing

I love homemade stuffing with my Christmas lunch. I love it on turkey sandwiches on Christmas evening. It just tastes so much better to shop brought packet stuffing that you add water to rehydrate.

For my stuffing I use:

2 packets of sausage meat
Pack of pre cooked and peeled chestnuts
Dried cranberries
Fresh breadcrumbs
2 onions
Streaky bacon

Finely chop the onions and cook with a little butter
Place the sausage eat in a large bowl
Chop the nuts and add to he sausage meat along with cranberries and bread crumbs


Mix well. Best way to do this is with your hands.
Added the cooked onions and mix.


Season well.
Great a baking tin and line with streaky bacon leaving some overlapping the sides.

Bring the bacon over the top and cover entirely.

I always make this in advance and freeze. Remove from freezer late Christmas Eve and warm through just before Christmas Lunch is served.
