pigs in blankets with sage and honey HERO

Try making this classic side dish using chipolata sausages coated in sweet honey and wrapped in smoked streaky bacon. Christmas trimmings don’t get much better than this!

  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C.
  2. In a bowl, toss the chipolatas with the chopped sage and honey until coated. Wrap each chipolata with a sage leaf then cover with a long piece of streaky bacon, winding it round until neatly wrapped. Arrange the bacon-wrapped chipolatas on a baking sheet. Roast for 30-35 minutes, until dark golden.


Tuck in: when winding the streaky bacon around the chipolatas, ensure the loose end of the rasher sits underneath the sausage, to prevent its 'blanket' unravelling.
