I made this last Christmas & it went down very well with the whole family. This year I made it again but rolled it in streaky bacon (as in the Christmas 2007 chestnut & cranberry stuffing recipe) It worked really well, I made two rolls, one hot on Christmas Day & another one with cold meats a few days later.
