I’m getting ready for Christmas early this year and as I'm the designated cook for occasions like this in the Biagi household, I do have a bit of a repertoire to satisfy the appetites of a demanding audience. But there is always one part of my Christmas lunch that has left us all a bit underwhelmed… my stuffing!
I've already ordered my festive box of meats from Exmoor Style foods and this comes with a rolled turkey breast joint, chipolatas, streaky bacon and sausage meat stuffing (not to mention a pork roast and a beef roast), but I need some help with how to make the most of my basic ingredient of sausage meat.
I know, from meeting many of you at our various events, that many of you are excellent cooks so I wondered if anyone has any great recipes for super stuffing.
As a prize for the best recipe, I will put together my very own Christmas hamper with a whole load of goodies purloined from the various very generous buyers, and will send this to the winner in time to enjoy during the Christmas hols. But there are rules:
- You need to post your recipe entries by the end of Sunday 6th Dec.
- Each entry should be titled “Simon – Get stuffed!
- The recipe should include sausage meat but can also have any other ingredients you suggest
- The finished stuffing should be suitable to make into balls (as I have a rolled joint and can’t stuff it)
- It should be suitable for kids and adults (loads of chillies, for example, wouldn’t be great!)
I’ll make up the top three entries and the family will feast on them to test them out. The entries will be judged by the harshest of critics - my two and seven-year-old children and the judge’s decision will be final!
I’ll announce the winner on my blog on Monday 14th of Dec and send the winner the Christmas Prize. You can enter as many recipes as you like.
So get creative, think honey, apricots, nuts, herbs and whatever else that gets the ‘ol taste buds working. I’m looking forward to eating, sorry trying, all the ideas. For the first time in my life I'm looking forward to being told to “get stuffed!”
Thanks so much for your help and have fun!
