Ingredients

  • 15 rashers smoked streaky bacon
  • 30 sage leaves
  • 1 cooking apple, peeled, quartered, cored and thinly sliced
  • 30 cocktail sausages
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup

Method

  • STEP 1

    Heat the oven to 220C/fan 200C/gas 7. Lie the bacon rashers on a chopping board, and scrape with the flat of a knife along the rashers, holding one side, to flatten and stretch the bacon out thinner (this ensures crisp blankets for your pigs).

  • STEP 2

    Cut each piece in half and lie a sage leaf, apple slice and a chipolata in the middle of each. Wrap the sausage in the bacon and transfer to a baking tray. Roast for 10-15 minutes until the bacon starts to crisp and the sausages are cooked. Brush with the maple syrup and cook for another 5 minutes until glazed.
