  • 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.
