Brit chippies relaunch footlong battered pigs and blankets ahead of Christmas

Pigs in blankets are a Christmas staple and no dinner is complete without the mouth-watering pork bites.

Now ahead of the festive period, chippies across the country are bringing back the battered footlongs for the season.

It combines the two classic favourites, battered sausages and, of course, pigs in blankets.

First up, the Christmassy spin is returning to Bestwood Fisheries and The Jolly Fryer in Nottingham.

It arrived back a few years ago with the chippies also selling a roast dinner "Monster Box".

The 12-inch bacon-wrapped sausages are encased in crispy batter, costing just £3.95 each.

There are six-inch options which come in at £3.20.

At both chip shops, who serve the same menu, there's a Monster Box for £9.99 and a mega pig in blanket.

Bestwood manger Antoni Tsolias said: "People have been asking for them for over two months now so they're looking forward to them. It's become tradition now, people know they're coming but it's definitely more of a treat."

Luckily Nottingham isn't the only place you can get your hands on the giant battered sausages either.

Fisherman's Bay in Whitley Bay first introduced the seasonal special in 2019, serving theirs with a cranberry dipping sauce.

Five Star Fish Bar in Nuneaton and Papas Fish and Chips in Hull, Scarborough, Whitby, and Cleethorpes also added battered pigs in blankets to their menus, with the latter titling the creation, "Hog in a Duvet".

Owner George Papas said: "It's the most amazing pig in blanket you could ever have. It would be a challenge for one to eat but we would love to see if anyone can, and if not it's something to order on top of your fish and chips to share."

Now it's Christmas…
