Method

Brown the butter over medium/high heat in a frying pan.

Add the onion seasoned with Green Onion Seasoning.

Stir-fry until just beginning to brown.

Add garlic and stir-fry for 1 minute.

Add the dry Stuffing Mix and stir through.

Decant into a medium size mixing bowl.

Add the sausage meat and mix it in with a small knife.

Beat the egg with the water and lemon juice.

Add to pork stuffing mixture.

Add nuts and lemon zest and stir through.

Leave to stand while pre-heating the oven and preparing the bacon.

Adjust the oven rack to the middle position and preheat to 180°C.

Lay the bacon strips on a length of baking paper overlapping slightly and alternating top to bottom (see pic).

Lay a second sheet of baking paper (cut to size) over the bacon and roll with a rolling pin over the top sheet to stretch the bacon.

Remove top layer of baking paper.

Spoon stuffing on the stretched bacon and shape into a log.

Wrap the bacon around the stuffing (see pic). Turn so that the join is at the bottom. Refrigerate overnight or bake straight away.

Brush with a little olive oil and bake for 20 – 25 minutes. Remove from the oven. Leave the stuffing roll on the tray to cool.

Can be served, warm or cold, cut into slices with our Peach Apricot Chutney.
