Christmas Dinner……at Easter??

I am a bit precious about my grub!  It just seems too long to wait until next December for Christmas Dinner!! So I rolled out some of my lush wee Christmas number and hey presto! The full works…ham, roasties, parsnips, carrots and turkey!!

Christmas Dinner

My stuffing recipe…

Herb Stuffing

I actually prefer the stuffing to the turkey!! The one I have for you is a basic herb stuffing, feel free to change it around, add or take away! Get creative.

Super thing is, you can make this ahead and put it in the freezer!

You could add 1 tbsp sage, 500g pork sausage meat, apricots or thyme.
1 x 800g Loaf Plain Bread (Nutty Krust) preferably a bit stale, crusts removed and broken into pieces
1 Large Onion skin and roots removed and cut into four.
175 Butter
70g Parsley (remove all the stems. This is roughly 2 supermarket packs)
Sea Salt and Black Pepper

You will need a nice large bowl!

In a food processor add the bread and blitz in batches. Tip each lot into your bowl.

Put the butter in a pot and place on a gentle heat to melt.

Add the onion to the food processor and blitz.

Stir the onion through the bread crumbs.

At this point I would season the stuffing with a generous amount of salt and pepper to ensure it is thoroughly incorporated.

Now blitz the parsley until it is nice and fine and stir it through your mixture.

Finally add the butter bit by bit to bind it all together. You may not need it all but it should be moist but still quite crumby looking.

Rock on tomorrow!! 😜🍷

p.s. No more Christmas chat until November!! Entirely uncalled for!!
