The original version of this went down an absolute storm in November – lots of friends tried it and loved it; so last night when I found a packet of pigs in blankets lurking in the fridge, my son suggested this version of the popular Breakfast Boudins. We made them this morning and they were absolutely delightful!
What you need…
1 x muffin tin, lightly buttered
1 x small baking tin, lightly buttered/oiled
1 x cookie cutter
3 slices bread
6 rashers back bacon
6 pigs in blankets
Sea salt and black pepper
What to do…
Preheat oven to 180°c / 350°f / gas 4.
Pop the pigs in blankets into the baking tin and then into the oven for 10 minutes.
Meanwhile, choose a cookie cutter that is the same size as the bottom of your muffin tin holes and cut six circles from your bread slices, nestling them snugly into the bottom of six of the holes.
Dry-fry the bacon so that it’s only just cooked and remove from the pan, setting aside until it’s cool enough to handle. Wrap each rasher around the edge of each muffin hole.
Remove the pigs in blankets from the oven and pop one in each muffin hole. Then break an egg into each one.
Season with salt and pepper and pop in the oven for 15 minutes.
Serve your Christmas Breakfast Boudins with steaming mugs of tea or coffee and enjoy a lovely light breakfast with a little reminder of the seasonal festivities! Yum.
I reckon that you could also swap out the pigs in blankets for a little spinach and smoked salmon for a different take on this lovely breakfast.

Really easy. A lovely, light and different breakfast.
