The pate is very overpowering and gives the stuffing an odd texture. I've made many fresh stuffings and I prefer them with sausage/ mince meat. Teh flavours are lovely in this stuffing though, and you only need a very small portion - half a muffin tin each did us this Christmas day.

This stuffing was very good. I did add meat from 3 cumberland sausages as I usually make sausagemeat and chestnut stuffing but I think the pate would have worked fine by itself. Will use this recipe again.
