Sausagemeat and Chestnut Stuffing Wrapped in Bacon

If you love stuffing but you do not want to make a large quantity, these sausagemeat and chestnut stuffing rolls are the solutions. 

Sausagemeat and Chestnut Stuffing Wrapped in Bacon

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.

You can also serve it with a mushroom risotto or a polenta with porcini or a gratin dauphinoise and some roasted vegetables.

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 a Index Chopping Board Set you can find on Amazon (affiliate link)

    I think stuffing wrapped in bacon is a great idea. For Christmas I usually make stuffing into balls and then wrap sausages in bacon but this is definitely great alternative.
