"Thank you Maynard & Benedict
- I have really enjoyed the course & I feel that I have gained a
great deal. But the most important thing is that I have been involved
and encouraged to be my-self. All I can say is thank you for the experience."
Walnut Grove Recipes
Christmas Turkey Stuffing
Makes 1.5 kg
- 2 onions
- 250g sausage meat
- 4 cloves garlic
- 1 tbsp fresh thyme
- 800g breadcrumbs
- 400g chestnuts
- 1 lemon, juice & zest
- 50g butter
- 75g pistachio nuts
- salt & pepper
- 3 to 4 tbs water
1. Chop the onions evenly into small pieces and crush the garlic.
Heat a large frying
the butter and add the onion, garlic & thyme. Cook gently
2. Add all the other ingredients and mix well. Add
just enough water to bind the mixture together (if needed).
3. Season to taste and either stuff into the cavity of the turkey,
or shape into balls and bake on a tray.
4. If cooking the stuffing in the turkey cavity, simply cook your
turkey as normal - the stuffing will be cooked when the turkey
is cooked. If cooking as individual balls cook them for around
40 minutes at 180°C. They should be slightly crispy on the
outside and moist inside.
Stuffing can be served with any roast, however it tends to be
best with poultry.
Stuffing can be made up to 4 days in advance,
store in an airtight container in the fridge.
