    chopped bacon bits

    an egg

    mix stuffing as per pct directions

    add the bacon bits

    then the beaten egg

    make into pattys and fry both sides

    I use sausage meat, stale breadcrumbs, chopped onion, seasoning and a beaten egg to bind - the quantities vary as to what I have in the cupboard but I then add either herbs, chopped apricots, walnuts, celery or whatever else I think will go with the joint. Cranberries with chicken or turkey is nice!

    I always make it into little patties and cook separately.

    You can dip pork or turkey escalopes into egg first and then packet stuffing mix instead of breadcrumbs, then cook as usual.

    Veggie broccoli and cheese stuffing (or savoury bread-pudding):

    Soak stale bread in milk for a while then mash and drain excess milk.

    Chop broccoli finely - even if they are going yellow (tell the kids if they complain that it is a new variety of broccoli, heehe), grate any remainder/crust of cheese you find in the fridge or you can use freshly bought cheese too, fry a couple of chopped onions and add chopped broccoli. Sautee for a few minutes.

    Add broccoli and fried onion mix to the mashed up bread, give it a stir (to let it cool) and add the cheese. Beat 2 eggs and add them to the mix.
    If the mix is too liquid you can add a bit of porridge oats to thicken/dry it a little - it should not be too dry because it swells and dries in the oven while cooking.

    Add salt and pepper (and nutmeg - optional) to taste.

    Butter a pie/cake dish and put stuffing in. Bake in medium oven until if you stick a knife in the stuffing it comes out dry-ish.

    If you don't have broccoli you can use any other veg, or omit the veg altogether for a savoury cheesy pudding.

    Buon appetito

    My family recipe for stuffing, used mainly at Christmas is as follows:



    Chop up large onion and large bunch of fresh sage cook these for about 40 mins in a small amount of water .
    Salt & pepper to taste.

    You can use dried sage if you can't get fresh.....

    Stale loaf whizzed into breadcrumbs place in a large basin, add the sage & onion including cooking liquid and a beaten egg.

    Then work it all in with your hands so it is well mixed up, (great Christmas eve stress relief) I use some inside the turkey and cook the rest in an ovenprooof dish, I put butter on top to keep it moist. Cook for about 1 hour in a low oven and it tastes wonderful and makes the house smell like Christmas.
