  • drizzle of sunflower oil
  • 12 sturdy rosemary sprigs, each about 10cm long
  • 6 rashers streaky bacon
  • 36 cocktail sausages
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup


  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Grease a large baking tray with a little oil. To prepare your skewers, remove most of the leaves from each rosemary sprig, keeping a few leaves at the end. Sharpen the other end to a point by cutting it at an angle.

  2. Stretch the bacon by placing it on a chopping board and running the back of a knife along the length. Cut each piece in half across the middle. Thread 3 sausages onto each skewer, weaving a piece of bacon around them as you do.

  3. Arrange the skewers on the baking tray and bake for 20 mins. Turn them, brush with maple syrup and return to the oven for 10 mins more until really sticky.
