Honey and Mustard Pigs in Blankets Recipe

It’s that time of year where all thoughts turn to Christmas day and Christmas dinner is one of the main aspects of the day that needs planning, preparing and organising down to the finest details. For us though, we have got Christmas dinner down to a tee. We have the same food every year – a turkey crown and all the trimmings including pigs in blankets.

What are pigs in blankets?

If you haven’t heard of them before, pigs in blankets are a festive side dish and snack of sausages wrapped in streaky bacon. You can also have devils on horseback – dried fruit wrapped in bacon – or even cheese wrapped in bacon. Obviously, everything tastes better when it has bacon all the way around it.

How to make pigs in a blanket?

I have never met anyone that doesn’t like homemade pigs in blankets and they are, by far, my favourite part of Christmas dinner. A couple of years ago I started cooking pigs in blankets and made maple glazed pigs in blankets but this year I’ve decided to make honey and mustard pigs in blankets instead – and they are really, really good!

The best pigs in a blanket bacon is definitely streaky bacon and these sausages in blankets are also delicious as part of a buffet or a party snack and we’re often found cooking them just to snack on through an afternoon. You really can never have too many pigs in blankets and they are such easy seasonal eats too – although not really a healthy treat!

We’ve also got a Maple Glazed Pigs in Blankets recipe if you’d like to try that one too.
