Stuffing
Do not food process except to cut the onions, breadcrumbs and sage, well you can but make sure you dont puree
Kilo of Sausage meat, 4 medium onions (blanched maybe), good handful of sage, loaf of tin bread crusts removed and crumbed. Additives such as apricots, chestnuts etc.

Potatoes
Parboil (5+ mins). Shake potatoes to rough up edges, put drained spuds in a baking tray.
Heat the fat in a pan on the stove until just starting to smoke and pour over the potatoes.
Put straight into a hot oven, 200+ is best or right at the top of the oven you are cooking your roast in.

Add parsnips and other root veg, esp parboiled beatroot to a seperate baking tray.

Sprouts
Cut off hard sprout bases, remove leaves, place in bowl. Fry off pancetta and then add chestnuts, add sprout leaves and fry for a couple of minutes to coat without the sprout leaves going soft.
