Melt butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Stir in onion; cook for 5 minutes, until softened.
Add diced bacon and mushrooms; stir over medium heat for 5 minutes or until bacon is cooked through. Mix in sausage meat; stirring to cook. Add diced chestnuts, chopped parsley, breadcrumbs, beaten eggs, salt and pepper. Mix well.
Transfer into a bowl; cool and refrigerate until you are ready to stuff your turkey. Alternatively, shape into balls and cook for the last 30 minutes of the turkey's roasting time.
This was wonderful, so tasty - almost eatable just on its own, and certainly easy to pick at! I used 600g of back bacon - 1.3kg just seemed quite a lot. This recipe makes a mammoth amount of stuffing - not only did I stuff the Xmas turkey, but also made a tray full of stuffing balls and a generous 'tray bake' of stuffing. The stuffing balls were a bit crumbly but the other two turned out lovely and moist. I'm going to use this recipe every Christmas! - 31 Dec 2015
Best recipe I've tried with chestnuts, made it last year, my son and daughter in law said it could be eaten by it's self, they came back for more twice. I found the 400g of breadcrumbs would have been too much so added about 40g. Will be making it again this year. - 24 Nov 2016
