Bacon and Cranberry Stuffing Balls

It’s just not Christmas dinner without crispy stuffing balls! These ones are packed full of flavour with the smoked bacon and cranberries soaked in the port – you definitely want more than just one! It gives a nice bit of sweetness to your meal.

These make ahead stuffing balls will be a real treat on Christmas day! The best thing is they freeze well so that's one less job to do on the big day!

When I used to live at home Mum made her stuffing in a dish and when she took it out the oven to cool I would always pinch a bit of the crunchy topping when she wasn’t looking. We always make stuffing balls as they go crispy all the way round which I really like!

I found making your own stuffing was very therapeutic and it’s really easy to do! I got real enjoyment out of sharing it with the family. They are also great to make ahead of time as you can freeze them and take them out Christmas Eve, ready for the big day! Plus I would definitely make more than you need so you can have them on turkey sandwiches!
