  • Preparation 30 min
  • Cooking 20 min
  • Servings 4 to 6
  • Freezing Absolutely



  • 2 boxes Kraft Dinner
  • 3kg pork shoulder, skin removed, chopped
  • 500 g (1 lb) old-fashioned smoked ham, skin removed, cut into small cubes
  • 400 g (3 cups) extra sharp cheddar cheese, diced
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground pepper



  • Prepare Kraft Dinner according to package directions, but cook pasta until it is truly al dente. Let stand for 5 minutes. Pour mixture onto a large baking sheet and let cool for 10 minutes.
  • In a very large bowl, add ground pork, cheddar cheese, maple syrup and spices and mix well with your hands.
  • Add Kraft Dinner and mix gently.
  • Fill your sausages with your favourite stuffing machine (without re-shredding to keep the texture!) and make sure the casings are wet to facilitate the process.
  • Preheat your oven to 400°F.
  • Place the sausages on a large baking sheet and bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until cooked through and nicely toasted, turning occasionally!
