3. Stuffing

You can’t have a traditional turkey without stuffing it with a delicious filling. This Porcini Chestnut Stuffing is the perfect solution and is so packed full of flavours that you’ll be begging for more. In fact, we recommend making extra helpings and getting some takeaway containers so your guests can take home some turkey and stuffing for their sandwiches the next day.

Mash potatoes are a much-underappreciated side that we just couldn’t live without. It may be a bit much to have mash and roast potatoes on a standard day, but hey, it’s Thanksgiving!
