Method

  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Cook the onion in the butter until soft but not browned. Add the breadcrumbs and stir so they soak up all the excess butter and fat. Let the mixture cool. Tip into a bowl with the sausagemeat, apple, cranberries, pistachios, sage and mixed spice. Mix well, then roll into balls. You can now cover and chill for up to a day before cooking.
  2. To cook, place in a roasting tin and bake for 40 mins, turning a few times, or until browned all over. Add the bay leaves, if using, for the final ten minutes of cooking.

I think they added too many '0's to the cranberries - 20-25gm is more than enough if you are using dried. The recipe quantities for the whole recipe makes quite a lot, but any unused stuffing freezes well

Made for Christmas and this was another dish my fiance loved. I didn't add as many cranberries after reading comments so it turned out really well, even using fresh cranberries.

I made this last year and agree 100% with the comments about the cranberries,there were so many of them that it was impossible to keep them from falling out of the ball shapes. I quite liked them but the rest of the family thought them too sweet,wont be making them this year. Thought I might try the Italian stuffing recipe in 2011 GF mag.

The Netherlands comment here:

Tasted lovely all guests thought so.
But I agree with the above comment about falling apart.
Next time I will double the amount of sausage-meat and at an egg.

This was totally awesome and loved by the whole family. Fewer cranberries would make it easier to roll into balls though.

This is a tasty stuffing recipe, but I agree with the above comment. There are far too many cranberries - half as many would be more appropriate, and dried cranberries work very well (it was all I had).

Sorry to say this but I think that there are way too many cranberries in this recipe. It's so tart and sweet that the he sausage, sage and nutty flavours are totally overpowered. I'm pretty sure dried cranberries would be better and intend to give it another go soon!
