    Pigs in blankets

    • Preparation time: 15 minutes
    • Cooking time: 30 minutes
    • Total time: 45 minutes

    Serves: 6


    12 gourmet pork chipolatas
    8 pitted medjool dates, sliced into thirds
    12 rashers smoked streaky bacon, halved
    4 tbsp date or maple syrup


    1. Preheat the oven to 220°C, gas mark 7. Pinch, twist and cut the sausages in the centre to make 24 small chipolatas. Wrap a piece of bacon around each sausage and piece of date.
