Pork, Sage, Apple and Clementine Stuffing

Recipe developed by Daniela Forbes

This delicious stuffing recipe is the perfect accompaniment to roasted meats and is perfect for Christmas lunch. It contains 50% Specially Selected Pork mince and 50% sausage meat making it juicy and succulent, yet with lots of flavour. The bramley apple and clementine lighten and brighten the taste, whilst the sage and nutmeg give a depth of flavour perfectly complimenting the pork. The sourdough bread chunks on top give texture and a welcome bit of crunch. Delicious hot with a roast or served cold and sliced in sandwiches the next day. It can also be frozen before cooking (omit the chunks of bread on top), then defrosted and made into delicious meatballs (look out for the recipe to follow after Christmas).

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C, fan 180°C, gas 5

2. Place all the ingredients into a large bowl, except the small chunks of sourdough bread. Mix thoroughly with your hands until everything is well combined.

3. Place the stuffing mixture into a shallow ovenproof dish then scatter the chunks of bread on top, pressing them down into the stuffing slightly.

4. Bake in a hot oven for 40-45 minutes, checking every so often to make sure the bread isn’t burning. If it looks like it’s browning too quickly turn the heat down slightly. Bake until the stuffing is golden brown on top, and piping hot throughout.
