How much is 25g of paxo stuffing?

Do you mean dried weight or cooked weight?

A level tablespoon will be about 15g cooked weight (or probably slightly less as there will be a bit of air in it) - so 25g is less than two level tablespoons (and once you scraoe the excess off with a knife a level tablespoon is hardly owt :( )

I just made a pack of Tesco stuffing - the smallest 85g (dry weight) pack made 300g cooked weight which makes 20 tiny balls about 1.5cm diameter at 1 syn each. The whole 85g pack contains 19 syns. Hope that gives you a general idea :)

Hmmm, not very good value for syns is it, I'd rather have another pig in blanket I think haha. My boyfriend makes good home made stuffing (it's about the only thing he can make!), just getting his recipe and seeing if I can work out the syns for that!

His recipe is just breadcrumbs, spices and then water. He uses two slices per person, which makes enough "to cover a pork chop with a thick blob". He just uses mixed spice. I think I may well be using my healthy extra and having some free stuffing! Yay!

PS I've not tried it yet so I dunno if it's nice!

Im not a fan of stuffing at all unless its mixed with proper sausagemeat :drool: which we only do at Xmas and tbh Im not counting on Xmas Day Dinner :)

But Im addicted to these stuffing balls! Theyre pretty rubbish on their own but I had them oin that Xmas soup and theyre divine, they soak up all the juices and taste like mini dumplings, real suet-ty flavour! :drool: So Im making masses and freezing them then I can just drop 3 or 4 in my soup or stew! :) Not bad for 1 syn each! :) Although I agree as just plain stuffing on their own they're not worth it.

Always trying!
I love stuffing, once I've added the water I start nicking bits out of the bowl.

I am going to the carvery later and I know I will have at least 4-6syns worth of the stuff!

What a good idea :) Just searching for the value of stuffing balls for our Sunday roast, do I, don't I? I do love stuffing so may sacrifise 1 syn for 1 ball ;-) I will def be using your tip of putting them in soup or stew though! x
