    Pigs in blankets

    Serves: 4 - 6
    Cooking Time: 50 mins


    • 10 rashers streaky bacon
    • 10 chipolatas/cocktail pork sausages
    • small handful fresh rosemary
    • small handful fresh thyme sprigs
    • 20ml (4 tsp) Worcestershire sauce



    Preheat the oven to 200°C. Grease a shallow roasting tray with cooking spray. Wrap each sausage individually in a rasher of bacon and lay on the roasting tray. Repeat until all of the sausages have been wrapped.


    Sprinkle the sausages with the herbs and Worcestershire sauce and bake until cooked through and the bacon is crispy, 45 minutes.
