Used different ingredients. I subsituted the Stuffing, I used our family favourite of Sausagemeat, cooked then chopped chesnuts, plus I added a packet of Paxo Chesnut flavoured stuffing, mixed with an egg,when fully assembled,I it inplaced in tight fitting roasting tin, I placed 2 empty foil covered 1lb jam jams either side behind the legs to help shape the "birds" left it to set overnight prior to cooking, it retained it's shape beautifully, & looked really impressive when served, - 28 Dec 2009
