These look delicious. It's funny because here in the UK we call sausage wrapped in bacon Pigs in blanket, they are a traditional accompaniment to Christmas dinner. When the sausage is wrapped in a pastry type thing we'd just call it a sausage roll! Whatever they are called they do look SO good though!
