  • cumberland sausage wheels 3 (or 12 linked chipolatas)
  • sage leaves 6-12
  • dry-cured streaky bacon 12 rashers
  • olive oil 2 tbsp
  • runny honey 1 tbsp
  • Dijon mustard 1 tbsp


  • Step 1

    Heat the oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Unravel the sausage wheels and wrap them in bacon, adding a few sage leaves here and there. Spiral the sausage wheel back up. If using chipolatas, first divide the string of sausages into 3 x 4 links. For each link, unravel the join between each chipolata carefully, and press the sausagemeat together to make one big sausage. Then follow the same instructions as above. Secure with a few cocktail sticks if needed.

  • Step 2

    Brush with the oil and roast for 25 minutes or until golden and cooked through. Whisk together the honey and mustard in a small bowl, then brush over the sausages. Roast for another 5 minutes until glazed.
