  • 36 chipolata
  • 18 rashers pancetta or streaky bacon

    Rosemary's intense, fragrant aroma has traditionally been paired with lamb, chicken and game…

  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil

    Sunflower oil

    A variety of oils can be used for baking. Sunflower is the one we use most often at Good Food as…


  1. Heat oven to 220C/200C fan/gas 7. Cut the sausages in pairs (so you have 2 sausages still connected by skin). Unwrap the twist between each pair and squeeze into one long, uniform sausage. Place a rasher of pancetta along the length of a sausage, stretching it a little to reach. Roll up the sausage in a pinwheel and secure with a rosemary skewer. Repeat with remaining sausages, pancetta and skewers. Put pinwheels on a greased baking tray and cook for 30 mins until golden.

Absolutely delicious! The taste of the rosemary was wonderful and they weren't too difficult to make. I found some long stems of rosemary and broke of the hard bottom bit to make the skewers - it held together perfectly. I'll being serving this again and again.

These were a little fiddly to prepare but worth it, I also used dried rosemary as at xmas they had run out of fresh, so i used a cocktail stick to hold them in place. They were a real success everbody commented on them especially the meat lovers!

They were simply beautiful! Guests loved them - the taste of rosemary infusion and the look. My suggestion is to add no oil as sausages have enough fat whch cooks them without drying them out. A sureshot success as a Xmas side
