Instructions Jump to Ingredients ↑

  1. Melt the butter in a large frying pan. Add the shallot, celery, leek and pancetta. Cook for about 5 minutes until soft but not coloured. Add the garlic and thyme and cook for a minute. Cool. Add the sausages to the cooled mix with the parsley, chestnuts, breadcrumbs and egg. Season and mix well. Shape 2/3 of the mixture into 12 balls and wrap each ball in a rasher of pancetta. Put the remaining stuffing into an ovenproof dish.

  2. Put the stuffing balls in the oven for the last 25-30 minutes of the duck cooking time (the remaining stuffing can either be cooked alongside the balls or cooked the next day to be served with any leftovers), and continue to cook while the duck is resting for 25 minutes.
