Not having turkey? This stuffing tastes just as nice with goose or chicken.


  1. Make the stuffing by combining all the ingredients. Cover and chill.
  2. Use some of the mixture to stuff the turkey. Shape any leftover mixture into golf-ball-sized balls and keep chilled.
  3. While the turkey roasts, cut the bacon rashers in half lengthways and wrap around the chipolatas, pushing a little thyme sprig into each bundle. Place the chipolatas and stuffing balls in a roasting tin lined with greaseproof paper. Scatter over a handful of thyme.
  4. Place in the oven when the turkey comes out and roast for 30 mins, until cooked through and golden.
