Easiest Pigs in blankets recipe

pigs-in-blankets-recipe

A Christmas dinner wouldn’t be the same without some pigs in blankets (or kilted pigs as they are also known). This is a simple recipe which you can make ahead and freeze, saving time on Christmas day. This easy Christmas side dish takes Swaledale Butchers Yorkshire breakfast sausages and blankets them in their dry-cured smoked streaky bacon, coating them with a honey, mustard and rosemary sauce before cooking.

More side dish recipes can be found here.

Alongside roast potatoes and honey-glazed parsnips, pigs in blankets are a staple for our Christmas dinner.
