  • 8-10 rashers streaky bacon, halved
  • 1 tbsp ready-made English mustard
  • 16-20 small party sausages
  • 16-20 ready-to-eat dried apricots, soaked in port (soaking optional)
  • 16-20 fresh bay leaves


  1. Run a knife along the length of the bacon rashers so they stretch a little, spread lightly with the mustard, then cut in half. Use the bacon to wrap a sausage and apricot together, then spear onto short skewers with bay leaves, allowing 2 rolls per person. Roast skewers in the oven with the turkey for 30-40 mins until golden. Serve on the platter alongside the turkey.

Really good! I prepared these as a starter for a BBQ and instead of using short skewers I used the normal ones but skewed 3 sausages in each one and I only placed a bay leaf in between each sausage because some started falling off. Also, only used have an apricot with each sausage and the flavour was still there.

Can these be frozen after roasting and then defrosted and served cold?

I couldn't follow this recipe to the letter as I had to make do with what I had/could get hold of. I used normal bacon and chopped up regular sausages instead of cocktail ones. I didn't have port so soaked the apricots in sherry and I couldn't find any fresh bay leaves - but still these were delicious andI would make again!
