Game Day [Tailgate Snacks]


Sponsored content. 

Coming together with friends is always fun to do, especially when delicious hors-d'oeuvres are involved. We’re bringing the punch for tailgating season! I've partnered with Colman's Mustard to help you with preparations for your very own game night, tailgating extravaganza and autumn-filled foodie fun.  

Whatever strikes your fancy—when it comes to game day there are plenty of food ideas to create, and nothing beats a simple classic. This time, I decided to make a bold version of ‘pigs in a blanket’. It’s a different version, filled with flavour and a slightly spicy cheesy sauce to get the conversation started.  

In partnership with our friends at

It's easy to add in a dollop or three to your meals, which gives any side dish or meal a great punch of heat and tanginess.

  1. 1. In a small bowl, add in all of the mustard sauce ingredients, except the brown sugar. Whisk vigorously for 60 seconds. Tip in the brown sugar, whisking until well combined. Set the bowl aside and cover with cling film. Let the sauce rest at room temperature or in the refrigerator for 15-20 minutes. 
  1. Cut the beef sausage in 8-10 small links (approx. 7cm or 2”-3” In length).  
  1. 2. Add in the vegetable oil to a medium non-stick saucepan to medium heat. Add the sausage links and cook for 4-5 minutes until slightly charred. 
  1. 3. Remove the sausages from the heat and set aside. 
  1. 4. Roll out the pre-cut triangles of dough flat on a baking tray. Add a good spoonful of shredded cheddar cheese along the middle of each piece of dough, starting from the wider end of the triangle. 
  1. 5. Add 1 teaspoon of mustard sauce on top of the cheese per piece of triangle.  
  1. 6. Place one sausage link on each triangle, horizontally, close to the widest end of the dough. 
  1. 7. Roll up the triangles, starting at the wide end. Place on the baking tray; curving each piece into the crescent shape (like a croissant). Brush the tops with melted butter. Generously sprinkle with ‘Everything’ seasoning.  
  1. 8. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until deep golden brown. Serve with mustard BBQ sauce.
