It’s that time of year where all thoughts turn to Christmas day and the family roast 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 roast dinner 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 little pork 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. They are the ultimate comfort food!

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 and caramelised onion ones but this year I’ve decided to make honey and mustard pigs in blankets instead – and they are really, really good!

Honey and Mustard Pigs in Blankets Recipe

So here they are – our favourite part of Christmas dinner and a great finger food for buffets, cooked in just over half an hour, and definitely our best pigs in blankets added to our festive recipe collection.

This recipe has a honey mustard marinade for the pigs in blankets. You can also make extra marinade to use as a honey mustard dipping sauce once the pigs in blankets are cooked too if you wanted.

Can I vary this recipe?

If you don’t like mustard – or don’t have any – you can leave it out to make simple honey glazed pigs in blankets instead. They will taste just as good and be a really nice sweet but savoury addition to your Christmas dinner. You could also use Bourbon instead of mustard to give honey bourbon pigs in blankets which is a great flavour combination.

Can I cook these in an air fryer?

Anything that you cook in an oven can be cooked in an air fryer so I’m sure you could make great air fryer honey mustard pigs in blankets too.

What bacon should I use?

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 sticky 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 and you can see all our pigs in blankets variations here. You can serve the pigs in blankets with cranberry sauce, a worcestershire sauce dip or even some mustard as an extra dipping sauce.

So here’s our Honey and Mustard Pig in Blankets Recipe:

Ingredients

  • 18 cocktail sausages or you can use chipolata sausages for bigger pigs in blankets!
