Pigs in blankets
Laverstock Park Farm Sausages Wrapped in Bacon (£8.29 for 12, pictured) achieve perfect balance. The sweet, pancetta-style bacon doesn't overwhelm the sausage. The thin, high-quality sausage marries happily with the crunchy crispness of the bacon. Abel & Cole Organic Cocktail Sausages in Bacon (£3.50 for 15) are tiny but porky. Stuffed with coarse ground meat, they will go well with turkey. For anyone who wants a proper sausage, Donald Russell's Pigs in Blankets (£6.50 for eight) contain bangers from heaven. Very sausagey indeed, perhaps a bit substantial for the Christmas lunch, but just the ticket for Boxing Day.
