    • Total time: 50 minutes 50 minutes

    • 2 tbsp olive oil
    • 1 onion, peeled and finely chopped
    • 450g pack Waitrose Pork Sausagemeat
    • 2 x 200g packs Merchant Gourmet Cooked and Peeled Whole Chestnuts, roughly chopped
    • 100g Waitrose Ready-to-Eat French Prunes, roughly chopped
    • ½ pack fresh flat leaf parsley, chopped
    • 3 tbsp plain flour
    • Salt
    • Freshly ground black pepper


    1. Heat 1 tbsp of the olive oil in a small pan and gently cook the onion for 3-4 minutes, or until softened but not coloured. Allow it to cool slightly.
    2. In a bowl, combine the cooked onion, sausagemeat, chestnuts, prunes and parsley. Season generously and mix well.
    3. Divide the mixture into 24 and, with damp hands, roll into small balls. Dust with a little seasoned flour. Place the balls on a baking sheet, drizzle with the remaining olive oil and cook for 30-35 minutes, or until thoroughly cooked.

    Cook's tips

    Try this: If you have time, buy 500g fresh chestnuts and, using a sharp knife, cut a small slit in the skins. Then roast in an oven preheated to 200°C, gas mark 6, or plunge into boiling water and cook for 10 minutes, then peel. Peel the chestnuts in small batches, as the skin will come off easily if they are still warm.
