The Meat

A traditional British dish, originally made from meat off cuts and offal (normally pork). Faggots are sometimes called Savoury Ducks, and are especially popular in the Midlands, but also in mid and south Wales. Originating as cheap, nutritious food they appealed to ordinary working people, but their popularity soon spread in the mid-nineteenth century.

Made to our True Bites family recipe, going back 3 generations of butchers, we use a mixture of pork, pigs liver, and pigs heart with a subtle seasoning. The meat is shaped into balls and wrapped in our own True Bites dry cured streaky bacon (we find our customers prefer them wrapped in bacon as opposed to the traditional caul fat). 

  • 6 faggots wrapped in streaky bacon (600g approx).
  • Hand made to our True Bites recipe.
  • Packed and labelled, ideal to pop in the freezer.
