Stuffing pigs in blankets

Stuffing pigs in blankets

Transform stuffing into a new version of pigs in blankets to save oven space. You’ll also need to buy fewer sausages, as this makes good use of just a few

  1. Step 1

    Put the stuffing mix in a large heatproof bowl and pour over 400ml boiling water from the kettle. Stir and leave to cool for a few minutes and absorb the liquid. Once cool, squeeze the sausagemeat from the skins into the stuffing mix, and scrunch everything together with your hands.
  2. Step 2

    Divide the mix into 12 pieces and, using wet hands, roll each piece into a finger-length log on a dampened chopping board (this will prevent them from sticking to the board). Wrap each stuffing log in a bacon rasher. Drizzle the oil over a baking tray, then arrange the pigs in blankets in a single layer. Can be made up to two days before, covered and chilled.
  3. Step 3

    Drizzle a little oil over the pigs in blankets, then put them in a cold oven. Turn the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4 and roast for 25 mins until the bacon is crisp and the stuffing is cooked through. Remove from the oven. Warm in the oven again just before serving.
