    • Preparation time: 10 minutes
    • Cooking time: 35 minutes
    • Total time: 45 minutes 45 minutes

    Serves: 6 - 8


    1 tbsp date nectar
    1 tbsp English mustard 
    18 British gourmet pork cocktail sausages, separated 
    9 slices Waitrose Cooks’ Ingredients Italian sliced pancetta, halved 


    1. Preheat the oven to 200 ̊C (180 ̊C fan), gas mark 6. Mix the date nectar, mustard and seasoning in a large bowl. Toss the sausages in the bowl to coat in the mixture.

    2. Cut each slice of pancetta in half, then wrap each sausage in a piece of pancetta. Place on a parchment-lined baking tray.

    3. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until golden and sticky. 



    Try swapping the pancetta for streaky bacon.

    These pigs in blankets can be served as a canape, simply pop them on a platter with a cocktail stick.

    For an American twist, wrap the sausage in bacon, roll in puff pastry then bake in the oven and serve warm with your Christmas lunch or as a nibble over the festive season. This delicious alternative sausage roll works perfectly dipped into cranberry sauce.
