Asda is selling footlong pig in blankets as part of its Christmas food range

ASDA is selling a footlong pig in blanket as part of its Christmas range this year.

The huge pig in blanket makes the festive side dish the Christmas dinner centre piece.

It's a footlong sausage, wrapped in oak-smoked dry cured bacon, and is available in the frozen aisle now.

Shoppers can pick it up for £5 from their nearest Asda store.

The supermarket has also added a second pigs in blankets dish to its Christmas 2021 menu.

The Extra Special pigs in blankets with red Leicester and sweet chilli fondue, combines sausages wrapped in bacon with a smooth cheese dip.

That's also priced at £5 and can be bought in store now.

Gavin Warburton, senior director of meat, fish and poultry at Asda, said: “We know pigs and blankets are a firm favourite at Christmas time, so it’s a tough task to improve on such a solid fan favourite.

"Our Extra Special Pig in Blanket Fondue adds an exciting and luxurious twist to a classic, and makes for a truly showstopping centrepiece.

"Once again this year, our Extra Special Ultimate Pig in Blanket is also proving hugely popular – and it’s easy to see why! A footlong pig in blanket…what’s not to love?”

Asda revealed the rest of its Christmas menu all the way back in August, and it includes a candy cane sausage roll.

We've rounded up the best Christmas party snacks available at supermarkets, as well as the best festive desserts.
