This recipe for Savoury Bacon Rolls
is a great way to prepare stuffed bacon rolls for informal entertaining or to eat cold with a picnic. I have suggested the use of cocktail sausages but, if you can't get these, you can use chipolatas and cut them into two or three lengths. I have also assume that you can buy packet mix for sage and onion stuffing. if not, any savoury stuffing for poultry will work.
How to make Savoury Bacon Rolls:
Cook the cocktail sausage (chipolatas) under a hot grill for 5-6 minutes, turning frequently. Meanwhile, make the sage and onion stuffing mix according to the packet (usually just adding hot water). Cut the bacon rashers (slices) in half. Wrap 10 of these round the sausages and secure each with a short wooden cocktail stick pushed right through the roll. Roll the sage and onion stuffing into sausage-size and sausage-shape balls and wrap them in the remaining 10 lengths of bacon, again securing with a cocktail stick. Cook under a preheated grill for about 3-4 minutes, turning frequently.
These rolls can be eaten hot, but are best served cold as part of a buffet or picnic. To add to the fun and the flavour, you can cut cubes of pineapple or cheese (or both) and thread those onto the cocktail sticks too.
