Growing up, the only stuffing served at Christmas in our house was Paxo sage and onion (just add boiling water). It wasn’t until many years later, when hosting Christmas myself that I discovered how delicious it can be when made from scratch, and really easy too! The obvious choice of fruit to add is cranberry, but I feel that figs work even better and add a lovely sweetness to the chestnuts. I would also consider adding sausage meat, however, my long suffering vegetarian mum deserves a chance to try this! You could use this stuffing to stuff your turkey but for me it’s all about the crispy bits on top of the tray.
