When we came across Gizzi Erskine’s recipe for this delicious Pigs in Blankets wreath we knew we just had to give it a go ourselves. It looked absolutely incredible and the bit that grabbed us the most? It’s simplicity. We love nothing more than finding a recipe that looks the part whilst tasting amazing, and takes minimum skill level to recreate at home! It should be noted that although we’re writing this with the intention of it being a vital part of your Christmas spread this year, this is actually so easy to make we think you’ll be making this all year round.
If you’re serving a larger party we think it would be fun to layer up your wreaths, making each one smaller as you go and placing your cranberry sauce on a raised platform in the centre to make your nibbles a real talking point that nobody will be able to miss. First they’ll be marvelling at the pyramid of Pigs in Blankets but we’re sure conversation will quickly turn to just how delicious it is too.
We have served this dish on one of our acacia carving boards which is the perfect size to hold our 12 pigs in blankets, arranged around one of our ramekins filled with a homemade cranberry and port sauce. You can take a look at Gizzi’s original recipe here.
