Pork and Chestnut Stuffing - Easy to Make Recipe

Pork and chestnut stuffing is really quite easy to make. You have to have pork and chestnut stuffing at Christmas or the turkey roast isn't quite the same!

Yummy balls of stuffing; they're so easy to make too, this is the nearest I've got to making pork and chestnut stuffing taste like the one from M&S (Marks and Spencer).

Be sure to buy good quality Butchers sausages or the stuffing will be fatty and altogether horrid. I used Cumberland sausages for this as they're nice and peppery.

Ingredients in this Recipe

  • Cumberland sausage 
  • Unsalted butter
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • a pinch of sugar
  • Streaky bacon
  • Flat-leaf parsley
  • Lemon thyme
  • Egg
  • Merchant Gourmet Chestnuts
  • Celery salt
  • Nutmeg
  • Black pepper 
Of course, to make this you will need a pack of whole cooked chestnuts

What are Cumberland Sausages?

Traditionally, Cumberland sausages are long and sold in a ring, but you can buy them so they look like ordinary sausages. 

The Cumberland sausage can have unique variations, but usually contains thyme, sage, nutmeg, and mace - a perfectly balanced taste of pepper and herbs. Here in the UK I really like to use Tesco Finest Cumberland sausages.
