This is to accompany poultry roasting at Gas 5/190 degrees C. OH found the basic recipe in an old Good Housekeeping book from the 50s. I tweaked it to freshen up the ingredients.
- 2 ounces vegetarian coarsely grated vegetable shortening (freeze overnight to make it easier to grate)
- 4 ounces breadcrumbs
- 2 ounces chopped dry cured bacon (small bits)
- Zest and juice of 1 small unwaxed lemon
- 1 large beaten egg
- chopped fresh curly parsley

We have this as part of a roast chicken dinner, but it can be served with pork, chops, grilled meats. The lemon could be replaced by chopped sour cherries. Toasted nuts could be added. The bacon bits could be left out for veggies.
Serves 3-4 if you have 2 each
