Apparently, the humble (yet delicious) bacon butty is the nation's favourite 'guilty' food. You can read more about the sublime-smelling and terrific-tasting sarnie snack here.

And of course bacon is a vital part of the traditional 'all the trimmings' Christmas dinner. But what if you fancy something a little different this year but you don't want to go without your bacon? Then why not try this savoury Christmas roulade?

Savoury Christmas Roulade


1 pack of unsmoked bacon

1 pack of pork sausages

1 pack of stuffing mix

Preparation method

Roll out some cling film on a work surface. Place the bacon on top of the cling film and overlap the edges of each rasher so there are no gaps, thereby forming a rectangle. Squeeze the sausage meat out of the sausages (or just buy sausage meat) and spread the sausage meat over the bacon. Make up the stuffing mix (it helps if you add some butter to stuffing mix) and then spread the stuffing over the sausage meat. Now roll the roulade into a log using the cling film to keep it all together. Place on a lightly oiled baking dish, remove cling film and bake in the oven for 30-40 minutes. Remove from the oven and slice into portions. Serves 2 with roast potatoes and vegetables, or 4-6 if used as the 'trimmings' for a turkey Christmas dinner.
