If you love stuffing but you do not want to make a large quantity, these sausagemeat and chestnut stuffing rolls are the solutions.
The crunchy bacon covers a soft sausage stuffing sweeten by the chestnuts contrasted by the tangy cranberries.
Perfect for Thanksgiving or Christmas to serve with the turkey or the roast.
I usually make a large quantity and freeze them in a pack of 4.
I defrost only what I need, the rest will come in handy another day.
As a matter of interest, I always cut my meat over a dedicated fish board as it is more hygienic.
I use an Index Chopping Board Set you can find on Amazon (affiliate link)
Each board is colour coded and has a symbol indicating its use e.g. meat (red), fish (blue), vegetables (green), and cooked food (white).
