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.
