Servings: 8



  • 16-20 Small party sausages
  • 8-10 rashers streaky bacon
  • 16-20 ready-to-eat dried apricots soaked in port (soaking optional)
  • 16-20 fresh bay leaves
  • 15 to 20 skewers soaked for 30 minutes in water

Dipping sauce

  • 3 tbsp apricot preserves
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce


  • Run a knife along the length of the bacon rashers so they stretch a little, spread lightly with the mustard, then cut in half.
  • Use the bacon to wrap a sausage and apricot together and repeat until the skewer has 3 sausages between the bacon and apricots, using the bay leaves to separate each section. Pop onto the BBQ for 15 minutes or until the bacon has cooked through.
  • Combine the remaining ingredients and blitz until smooth for the dipping sauce.
