Foodie Friday – Pigs in Blankets

Today's Foodie Friday looks at Pigs in Blankets – no, not live pigs and not wool blankets.  This is a traditional English Christmas side dish to go with roast turkey.

Basically they are small sausages (normally chipolatas) wrapped in bacon.  I guess this dish relies on good quality ingredients since it is pretty simple to make.

In the USA pigs in blankets often refers to sausages wrapped in bacon and then in pastry.

Here is a traditional British recipe for them sourced from the BBC.


8 rashers smoked streaky bacon
16 chipolatas


Heat oven til moderately hot. Cut the bacon rashers in half. Wrap each piece  of bacon round a chipolata.

Put onto a baking tray and bake for 30-35 minutes until golden.
