Christmas sausages

Entertaining guests this Christmas?

After the disappointment of last year, pretty much everyone has a festive get-together planned with their nearest and dearest. And if you’re in charge of the finger food, here we’ve rounded up a list of Christmas buffet ideas for you to try – all featuring our delicious sausages and sausagemeat.

They’re bitesize, indulgent, and utterly moreish.

So why not give them a go and make sure your festive spread is one to remember?


6 sausage-themed Christmas canapés

1. Supreme sausage rolls

Sausage rolls are the ultimate buffet classic.

It’s a fact – if they’re not on the menu, your guests will be disappointed. So don’t let them down.

Make your own flaky pastry or cheat with a ready-made roll. Who cares? Just use our ‘Merry Mulled Wine’ Christmas Sausagemeat – with its rich flavours of red wine, cranberries and cinnamon – and bake until golden brown. For a modern twist, we recommend serving this old-school Christmas canapé with spicy cranberry ketchup.


2. Crimbo cocktail sausages

Want to give your festive buffet a retro vibe?

You can’t go wrong with a traditional hedgehog centrepiece. Pop our super tasty cocktail sausages on a stick, along with a chunk of mature cheddar and a tangy pickled onion. It’s a fun and nostalgic canapé, guaranteed to make your guests smile – and they taste fantastic!

Or, if you’d prefer to leave the hedgehog back in the 80s, why not roast our Chalgrove English Pork Cocktail Sausages with mustard and maple syrup? Cook them until they’re sticky and caramelised. Cut them in half and place them on top of blinis with a sprinkle of chives. Simple yet fancy.


3. Scrumptious scotch eggs

Hard-boiled eggs wrapped in sausagemeat, coated in breadcrumbs and fried. Yummy! Scotch eggs are quintessentially British, and in our opinion, no festive buffet is complete without them.

To keep things traditional, use our Cumberland Pork Sausagemeat and serve them up with a delicious mustard dipping sauce. Or for a unique seasonal twist, mix with turkey, cranberry sauce, sliced cranberries, and chopped sage. It’s a brilliant way to use up all the leftovers!

4. Moreish meatball lollipops

Looking for a way to satisfy the meat-lovers? How about some meaty lollipops?

This is a super easy Xmas buffet idea that is guaranteed to leave them drooling. Simply roll our Pork, Apple, and Chestnut Sausagemeat into small bite-sized balls, slide two or three onto a bamboo skewer, and fry them over a medium heat.

Thanks to the seasonal flavours of the meat, these are the perfect finger food for your festive party! Not only are they mouth-wateringly good, they look great on the table.


5. Tasty pigs in blankets

Can you even call it a festive buffet if you don’t have pigs in blankets?

The answer is no.

This is a must-have Christmas canapé that absolutely everyone loves. And thanks to our Pigs in Blankets DIY Kit, you can have them rustled up in no time. The kit includes everything you need – 400g of our classic pork chipolatas and 200g of streaky bacon. Simply wrap them up, bake them until they’re crispy and golden, and drizzle a little honey over the top.

Be sure to pile them high in the centre of your table, as these bad boys won’t stick around for long!


6. Heavenly hot dogs

Forget about burger sliders. It’s all about the mini hot dogs! Delicious meaty goodness, all wrapped up in a soft white finger roll. What’s not to love?

To replicate those found at the Christmas market, we recommend topping our Pork, Apple, and Chestnut Cocktail Sausages with sauerkraut, crispy onions and mustard.

Or, to feed a crowd of hungry guests, why not create a huge hot dog tray bake? Simply line the base of the tray with the bottom half of your buns. Cut our ‘Merry Mulled’ Christmas Sausages down the middle and lay them side-by-side. Then, top with cheese, onions, and the remaining bun halves. Your guests can tear and share ‘til their heart is content!
