For me, Christmas is about Mum’s stuffing. I can take or leave most of Christmas dinner (and do not get me started on the idiocy of having a roast meal in the middle of an Australian summer) but Mum’s stuffing was always the best bit. She made lots of it because my sister and I insisted that we needed more for boxing day and the days after.
Obviously, you can use this stuffing for the Christmas turkey, a Sunday roast chicken or make stuffing balls with it. I like to make it in a pan so it can be sliced at a later stage for stuffing sandwiches. It freezes really well too.
Do buy the best quality pork sausages you can afford, ideally from a good butcher. Some supermarkets (like Waitrose) sells packs of sausage mince which are not bad but really good sausages are your best option.
