It's all about the stuffing

Stuffing is too good to have just once a year. Bake it, fry it, shape it – just make sure you have enough for leftovers.

Forget everything you know about stuffing, including the memories of your great aunt’s grey-hued, bready, back-of-the-box recipe. Add flavour with fruit, good-quality sausages and bacon, or go for a meatless version – throw the vegetarians a bone! And you don’t actually have to stuff into anything by the way, it’s a dish in its own right.


Bacon-stuffing recipe

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Gently fry chopped 1 x 200 g Woolworths streaky bacon and 1 whole celeriac, cut into small cubes for 3–5 minutes. Remove from the heat and mix through 200 g cubed sourdough bread, 2 T Woolworths onion marmalade,50 g grated Parmesan, 2 sprigs of roughly chopped rosemary and season to taste. Transfer to an ovenproof dish and bake for 30 minutes, or until golden.


Vegetarian stuffing

Increase the heat and add 3 sticks of thinly sliced celery, 200 g baby spinach, 2 beaten free-range eggs, 1⁄2 cup of Woolworths organic vegetable stock, 2 apples,cut into small cubes and continue frying for a few minutes. Season to taste. Garnish with pomegranate rubies.
