Parma, Cranberry, Apple & Rosemary Stuffing Balls

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (or 160°C for fan forced oven).
  2. Make breadcrumbs by adding bread to a food processor and processing until they resemble breadcrumbs.
  3. Heat a large frying pan and add olive oil. Add Parma ham and fry for 2-3 minutes, until just crisp. Remove from pan and drain on a paper towel.
  4. Add onion, garlic and butter to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes or until soft. Add the apple and cook for a further 1-2 minutes until apple is soft.
  5. In a bowl mix the milk, egg, melted butter, rosemary, parsley, cranberries, salt and Parma ham until combined well. Place the breadcrumbs in a large bowl and add the wet mixture to the breadcrumbs and combine.
  6. To make the stuffing balls - roll heaped tablespoons of mixture into tight balls, place on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Set aside in the fridge for 15 minutes to set firmly.
  7. Remove from fridge, drizzle with olive oil and season with freshly ground black pepper.
  8. Bake for 25 minutes or until stuffing balls are golden. Turn stuffing balls once during cooking.

To serve: enjoy on their own or with your favourite roast dinner. Serve with gravy or cranberry sauce.
