RECIPE TIPS
TWISTS: CHIPOLATAS & SAGE
Wash and dry 16 sage leaves. Lay 1 sage leaf on each chipolata before wrapping in bacon. Put 1 tbsp honey in a bowl and brush each bacon-wrapped sausage with a little honey before cooking as per the recipe above. 
TWISTS: BLACK PUDDING-STUFFED DATES
Instead of sausages, fill 16 pitted dates with 50g black pudding. Wrap the stuffed dates with bacon and secure with a cocktail stick. Brush over 1 tsp wholegrain mustard mixed with 1 tsp brandy before roasting as per the recipe above.
TWISTS: BACON-WRAPPED BUTTERNUT SQUASH & CHESTNUTS
Instead of sausages, cut 100g peeled butternut squash into 16 chunks and boil for 5 mins, then drain and leave to steam-dry. Halve 8 marrons glacés (or 8 chestnuts if you can’t find them), and place each half on top of a chunk of squash. Wrap each bundle with a piece of bacon, then secure each one together with a cocktail stick before roasting as per the recipe above.
