Pig trotter stuffing? Need ideas

Hey, I'm going to make stuffed pigs trotter and i was wondering what to put inside the trotter to compliment the pig.

So far im thinking of putting chicken/rabbit mousse, mushrooms and shallots. Or some sort of beans inside.

Im still undecided on the sauce and compliments.

So far ive skinned two trotters and deboned the other two with the feet still attached.

Any ideas would be great

I am not a Podiatrist but, I would use a pork sausage and corn bread or rice stuffing.

Fantastic achievement, never tried to do it. I have eaten them in Italy and from distant memories they had cubes of pancetta and salami in them, they were also braised in a tomato sauce.
Rabbit ect sounds fab with maybe some chicken livers, sauce, what about a tart apple and calvados cream sauce.

you could do a reverse theme: mouth in foot.

guanciale and tongue, stuffed with garlic, peppers, and rice or white beans and greens into the trotters.

the guests can eat with a shoe horn.

Tom mate I will resist posting the thoughts that are running through my head so as not to pollute this thread.
A plea to the mod who deleted the "should my sister wear this" yes it was spam but with Toms assistance it would have developed into a spammers nightmare.

Mario Batali did a trotter on his Molto Mario show. I think it was stuffed like Porcheta? or it had a it had a Cotochino Sausage crammed inside. Sorry Mi Italiano no es bueno!. check spelling of all above.

They are good stuffed with sauerkraut or a mild sausage meat like chicken or pork.

I must admit that it never occurred to me to stuff pig's feet. It sounds very interesting.
I have been eating pig's feet all my life and I have yet to find that they truly need anything but salt and pepper. I will have to look into this...Thanks!

Believe me its probably one of the underrated underused cuts.

Hopefully people won't catch onto it or it'll raise the prices up so high
