Pigs in a Blanket Recipe


Pigs in a Blanket - Bacon Wrapped Sausages - are the traditional accompaniment to roast turkey for Christmas dinner. They are so delicious though there's no need to keep them just for Christmas. Children love these bite-sized sausages and I have seen adults equally enjoy them, so make plenty.

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Cook Time: 30 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes


  • 24 cocktail sausages
  • 8 slices streaky bacon


Makes 24

  • Heat the oven to 375F/190C/Gas 5
  • Using the back of a knife stretch each bacon slice then cut into 3 equal pieces.
  • Tightly wrap each sausage with a piece of bacon. Lay side by side on a baking tray.
  • Cook in the preheated oven for 30 mins or until crisp and golden. Serve alongside roast turkey.
The sausages can be wrapped the day before, even the week before and frozen. Defrost thoroughly before cooking.
