Find out how to make pigs in blankets (sausage wrapped in bacon), the perfect accompaniment to a traditional roast turkey Christmas dinner.
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.
