Morrisons Is Selling A Giant Pasty Filled With A Three Course Christmas Dinner
| Last updated
Morrisons has taken the humble Cornish pasty to a whole new level - the supermarket has gone and stuffed all that pastry goodness with an entire Christmas dinner.
That's right - you can now get your hands on a Christmas dinner pasty. And while you're letting that sink in, here's another piece of good news: it'll only set you back £2.50.
But this is no ordinary Christmas dinner, it's a three-course dinner with all the trimmings - for starters, when diners first bite into the pastry treat, they'll be treated to a winning combination of Ardennes pâté, sweet apple chutney and Melba toast.
But as nice as that sounds, the centre of the pasty is definitely where the good stuff resides - the part of the dinner we all want, the main course. It's packed with succulent British turkey with sage and onion stuffing, plus potato, pigs in blankets, cranberries and a creamy sauce.
And then, moving on to the dessert side of the pasty (yes, there's a dessert in there too, somehow), you'll even get to enjoy a rich Christmas pudding with brandy sauce.
Morrisons explained that the idea for this frankly extravagant snack came from the original idea behind Cornish Pasties.
It may sound odd to have dessert in a pasty, but that's exactly what Cornish Pasties originally contained - a stunning combination of savoury and sweet parts. They were carried underground by tin miners and contained meat and vegetables in one end, and jam or fruit in the other.
Which is lucky for us, as we all know that no Christmas dinner wouldn't be the same without some pud.
The bakers and chefs at Morrisons have also added a little arrow scored into the pastry so customers know exactly which end to start with - although no one will judge you if you decide to tuck into some Christmas pudding first. Why not treat yourself in the festive season, after all?
What do you reckon? Does this combination of tasty foodstuffs sound like something you'd want wrapped up in a pastry parcel? I think we all know the answer to that one...
Of course, it's not the only time we've seen some of our festive faves getting a seasonal upgrade - the Yorkshire pudding wrap and deep-friend Brussels sprouts are all among the festive treats on offer elsewhere. Now, you get to tuck into a full Christmas dinner - with dessert - that leaves no washing up. What a world we live in.
