Have the butcher bone the leg of veal.
Before cooking, wipe all surfaces, including cavity, with dampened absorbent paper.
Prepare stuffing by first simmering sausages in small amount of water for 5 or 6 minutes.
Drain, mash meat and mix with the crumbs; add remaining stuffing ingredients, including just enough cream to bind mixture.
Fill meat cavity; then partially close with 2 or 3 skewers laced with twine.
For extra flavor and richness lay 4 or 5 slices of side bacon over top of meat.

For the last hour of cooking remove bacon to allow meat to brown evenly and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
