Tips, Tricks and Hacks…

Make Ahead! Complete steps 1-10, allow to cool and put in the fridge for up to 3 days. On the day, preheat oven to Temp 1 and complete steps 10 to 13.

Substitution: If you don’t have pork sausages, you can use sausage mince, or pork mince seasoned with salt and pepper.

Stuffing Balls: Don’t fancy the loaf? You can roll your stuffing into golf ball sized balls and wrap each in half a rasher of bacon. Put on a baking tray and cover with foil, cook at Temp 1 for 15 minutes, remove the foil and cook for a further 30 minutes or until the bacon is brown.
