How to Nail Delicious Christmas Stuffing November 28, 2016
… said no one ever!
But our pistachio and prune stuffing is so good, we guarantee people will be giving you whatever you like for Christmas! So, give it a go and watch the presents roll in.
- Preheat your oven to 180 degrees and boil two medium-sized pots of water. Remove the pistachio nuts from their shells and chop roughly. Chop the prunes into ½cm pieces.
- Split the sausage and squeeze the meat into a bowl, discarding the skin. Add your pistachios and prunes. Mix it all together with your hands, don’t be afraid to get sausagey!
- To stuff a filet:
- Stuff your pork by spreading your sausage mixture down one side of the opened fillet, then fold over the other half. You need to leave a 2cm border at each end and along the outside length of the fillet, so you are able to seal it. Once folded, the seam needs to be facing downwards. Tip: If there is too much stuffing, just roll the excess into ping pong sized stuffing balls.
- For normal stuffing:
- Place your stuffing in a heatproof baking dish, and spread evening. Drizzle on some olive oil and bake in your preheated oven for 25-30 minutes
