The Kent Website since 1999
Welcome to our chestnut stuffing recipe page. We make no great claims for this recipe other than it's the best we've tried as well as being one of the simplest. The recipe requires bread crumbs, if you don't have any you could use a generic packet 'stuffing' mix but this will affect the final result. This is a simple recipe to adapt for vegetarians, simply leave out the meat ingredients and use appropriate alternatives. This is a recipe that will tolerate a good degree of modification so if you have the basics right do experiment: fruit, chilli and olives are all added ingredients our users have told us can be added to the original recipe in moderation!
The success of our recipes over the last fourteen years (the chestnut stuffing recipe in particular) has been underpinned by user feedback and researcher suggestions. If you have any improvements or modification you'd like to share we would be more than happy to hear from you. If you'd like to access more of our traditional (and not so traditional) recipes take a look at our Recipe Directory including our Christmas Cooking Guide.
This is a stuffing that we have been using for many years so we know it's very reliable, take a moment to read the recipe before you begin, there are many variations on this favorite.
We also use a little garlic in our dish, this is our own innovation and also a question of taste, use a little shallot if you prefer. Feel free to experiment. Good luck and let us know how you get on. If you enjoyed this suggestion you also might like to try faggots.

This stuffing recipe enhances almost any roast poultry and if you want to give it a distinctive Kentish flavour use cobnuts in addition to chestnuts in a ratio of about two to one; (two parts chestnuts to one part cobnuts). Thanks to Margaret for the recipe which takes twenty to thirty minutes to prepare.
