Asda has launched a giant pig in blanket ahead of the festive season and it’s apparently “very tasty”.

What’s the giant pig in blanket made from?

It’s made with “prime cuts of British pork and wrapped in rashers of dry cured, oak-smoked bacon”.

The Asda website states: “A Christmas classic turned into the ultimate centerpiece.”

Indeed, a picture of the giant pig in blanket shows it surrounded by another Christmas staple, Brussels sprouts!

Your new soon-to-be festive favourite can also be cooked from frozen, should relatives descend at the last minute and you have nothing defrosted.

Each slice contains 152 calories, while the whole thing costs a fiver.

That means it costs just 50p per person.

Sausage to bacon ‘ratio’ applauded

Another suggested serving it as a sausage and mash-style dish to their pal.

“Yes yes!” came the reply.

“Or in a baguette!” they added.

Others commented on the “ratio” of sausage to bacon.

Asda are rumoured to have used more than 500g of sausage meat to make the giant festive offering, wrapping it in around 100g of bacon.

“I like this. Puts the sausage clearly in control when it comes to ratios,” said one sausage fan.
