How to make a fail-safe stuffing for Christmas
Jamie explains the basic ingredients for any stuffing and has some suggestions for how to make it your own using anything from roasted chestnuts to chilli flakes.
Making the base of a stuffing

Mixing up your stuffing
Adding bread to your meat will make it go further. If chestnuts take your fancy you can buy them vacuum packed at the supermarket. Once you've added all the embellishments you want and your onions have cooled down, mix it all together with your hands and season.
Cooking your stuffing
When it comes to cooking your stuffing, put some aside to stuff in the neck of your turkey and the rest into a baking dish which will go in the oven and make the most glorious crispy Christmas stuffing.
