Protein-Packed Bite-Sized Delight: 2 Ingredient Pigs In Blankets Recipe

Protein-Packed Bite-Sized Delight: 2 Ingredient Pigs In Blankets Recipe

Elevate your Christmas or Kiwi BBQ with the classic and oh-so-satisfying Pigs in Blankets – a two-ingredient wonder that's not only delicious but also packs a protein punch.

Dive into this English Christmas staple, perfect for those following a ketogenic lifestyle, considering the carnivore diet, or simply wanting to spice up the holiday platter beyond the usual fare.

Even my Christmas recipes tend to involve fruit or cheese, where as this recipe is brilliant for breakfast, as a snack or an addition to a Christmas Platter. It's packed full of protein and natural animal fats.

So, Protein-Packed Bite-Sized Delight: 2 Ingredient Pigs In Blankets Recipe - here's a list of our ingredients (beyond the main 2) and a how to guide...


🌭 Breakfast Sausages:

  • Choose small breakfast sausages or go big – we don't discriminate! The meat in sausages often includes offcuts from around the bone, providing more collagen and connective tissue. These elements are not only flavourful but also contribute to joint health and skin elasticity (Reference: Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry, 2008).

  • The natural casing on sausages is also made up of a collagen-rich layer of the intestine (just don't think about that too hard...) but it is good for you.

  • Too much-processed meat isn't ideal but as a treat once in a while, choosing sausages from a proper butcher who can tell you the ingredients AND if you are stuck with the supermarket choosing the sausages with the best ingredient list possible is the way to go!

🥓 Streaky Bacon:

  • Opt for bacon and sausages with the highest meat content and the fewest additives. High-quality bacon offers a savoury, smoky flavour that complements the sausages perfectly. The crispy texture adds an extra layer of delight to this festive treat.

🪴 Rosemary & Thyme:

  • Infuse your Pigs in Blankets with the aromatic essence of Central Otago by adding Rosemary and Thyme. These locally-inspired herbs not only enhance the flavour but also bring a touch of freshness to the dish.


Preheat Your Oven or BBQ:

  • Set your oven to a moderate temperature or fire up the BBQ for that delicious smoky flavour.

Wrap and Roll:

  • Take each sausage and lovingly wrap it in a slice of streaky bacon. Secure with toothpicks if needed.

Herb-Infused Magic:

  • Sprinkle Rosemary and Thyme over the Pigs in Blankets for a burst of local Central Otago goodness. The herbs not only add flavour but also contribute their own health benefits.

Bake or BBQ to Perfection:

  • Place your creations in the oven or on the BBQ and let them sizzle until the bacon is crispy and the sausages are cooked through. This won't take long, so keep an eye on them!

Serve with a Smile:

  • Arrange your Pigs in Blankets on a platter and watch the smiles light up the room. These make for a perfect addition to holiday gatherings or a Kiwi BBQ feast.

Pro Tip:

  • Pigs in Blankets are equally delicious when prepared in advance and enjoyed cold. Perfect for those who want to get ahead of the festivities!
