About this recipe: This stuffing has bacon, sausage, mushrooms and chestnuts. I'm hoping others enjoy it as much as we do!

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
