About the Recipe

Pickle your Christmas meal with the gherkins in blankets.


  • Mrs Elswood Cucumber Spears with Dill

  • 300g Streaky Bacon

  • It is equally delicious with turkey, pork and plant-based bacon. ​

  • If you are using plant-based bacon, you may need to use a cocktail stick to keep the vegan bacon in place.

Serve with:

  • Cheese & Chive Dip


  1. Preheat the oven to gas mark 6, 200°c, fan 180°c. Cover a baking sheet in foil​

  2. Wrap each pickle spear in your chosen bacon until you run out of bacon strips. Place them on a baking tray.​

  3. Cook in the oven for 10-12 minutes until the bacon is fully cooked. Serve with a dip as an appetiser or by themselves as a side to your main meal.
