  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6/200˚C/180˚C fan. Set out 1 very large roasting tin or 2 medium tins.

  2. For the pigs in blankets, lay the bacon on the chopping board and run the back of the knife down the length to stretch it out. Cut in half and wrap 1 piece around each of the sausages. Put into the tins and nestle the vegetables around them.

  3. Drizzle with the oil and season with salt and black pepper, turning the sausages and veg carefully to coat.

  4. Cook for 30 mins, then take out of the oven, and turn over the sausages and vegetables. Scatter over the sage leaves, stir together the mustard and maple syrup and drizzle evenly over the tins.

  5. Return to the oven and cook for 10-15 mins until well browned and sticky.
