Toby Carvery launches footlong pig in blanket for Christmas

The return of pigs in blankets is a sure sign Christmas is on the way.

It’s a Christmas spread guilty pleasure, with two types of pork, combining the textures of a succulent sausage with crispy wrapped bacon…

Have we made you hungry?

This year, Toby Carvery wants the joy to last for longer. Forget mini pigs in blankets – now you can indulge in a footlong one.

Calling it the ‘Festive Footlong Super Pig’, this is for meat fans.

Toby Carvery say they sell over 750,000 pigs in blankets every year, which has inspired the creation of an extra large one.

Measuring just over 30cm – think of the plastic rulers you had at school – it’s like an alternative large hot dog.

Only available for a limited time, it hits branches in a week on November 17 and will be sold until December 31.

It will be available nationwide too, giving plenty of opportunity to try one and tuck in.

Diners can choose to have it as a meal served in a warm ciabatta roll, with turkey stuffing and cranberry sauce, along with roast potatoes or house salad on the side for £7.49.

Or they can add it on to any dish on the main food menu with cranberry or BBQ sauce, for £5.49.

Martin Gosling, operations director at Toby Carvery, said: ‘As the home of the roast, we know that Toby Carvery is the go to place for diners during the festive season, which is why we wanted to add something special to the festive menu for guests to enjoy.

‘With pigs in blankets being a firm favourite, it felt only right to go the extra mile to create the ultimate Festive Super Pig.’

And don’t worry, regular sized pigs in blankets are still available.
