Method

  1. Heat a large frying pan and add the pancetta. Cook for 2-3 mins until just starting to turn golden. Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon and set aside. Add the butter, onions and garlic to the pan, and cook for 4-5 mins, stirring occasionally. Remove from the heat and transfer to a bowl with the pancetta. Leave to cool.

  2. Heat oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. Stir the orange zest, breadcrumbs, sage and nuts into the onion mixture and mix well. Season, then stir in enough of the beaten egg to bind the mixture but not make it sloppy. Use to stuff the turkey or shape into balls, place in a roasting tin and cook for 30 mins.

These have officially replaced any other stuffing recipe I use! So good - the orange comes through beautifully and the pancetta is so nice.
