A desparate need for stuffing in stuffing-free Holland led me to create this for roast chicken. I serve them as balls but I am sure they could be baked as a 'cake' or used to stuff the chicken in your usual way. They would be lush with pig dishes. I plan on trying the mix as a crust for pork chops...

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees Celsius.
  2. Beat the egg.
  3. Dice the apple into small pieces.
  4. Crush the garlic in a pan.
  5. Cook the bacon bits with the garlic - there is no need to use oil because lardons release a lot of fat.
  6. Remove the lardons from the pan and swab with a kitchen towel to remove the excess fat.
  7. Remove the fat from the pan (hint: use a kitchen towel) and in the same pan melt the butter.
  8. Soften the apple in the butter.
  9. Mix all of the ingredients together.
  10. Form the stuffing into golf-ball size balls and bake in the oven for 30 minutes or until brown and crispy.
