The best, and most unusual, pigs in blankets dishes in Leeds this Christmas

Pigs in Blankets got a menu makeover this year and now feature on just about every menu in Leeds: we’ve got the most unusual flavours here.

Pigs in Blankets really got a makeover this year in Leeds.

Whether you like one or twenty pigs in blankets on your Christmas dinner, this year, you certainly didn’t have to wait until the 25th of December to get your hands on a chipolata or two.

This year, we’ve seen pigs in blankets thrown on to just about every menu in Leeds: but unless you’re having a pre-Christmas roast dinner, very few of them are being served with their traditional turkey and gravy companions.

We’ve rounded up the best and most unusual pigs in blankets dishes in Leeds so you have plenty more options to fill up before Christmas day.

Footlong ‘Festive Super Pig’ Baguette

First up is the most traditional of our choices. If you love pigs in blankets, this supersized version from Toby’s Carvery ought to have your mouth watering. The Festive Super Pig is a giant pig in a blanket stuffed inside a warm ciabatta roll with cranberry sauce, stuffing and served with a choice of roast potatoes or house salad.

Of course, if you can’t bare the thought of letting your pigs in blankets take front and centre of your Christmas dinner roast, you can always just add them to your usual Toby Carvery order instead at the Oulton, Morley or Chapel Allerton restaurants.

Little Bao Boys are really treating us to a three course Christmas dinner this year, but of course, it wouldn’t be from the resident chefs if the entire menu wasn’t based around their locally renowned bao bun.

The Pigs in Blanket Bao is a combination of your usual, fluffy bao bun encasing two pigs in blankets and topped with Sriracha sauce and tiny spring onion pieces. If you’ve got room for dessert, there’s a mince pie bao bun, deep fried with cinnamon sugar also on the menu.

You can’t doubt the creativity on this one. Thor’s Tipi really do know how to bring Christmas to life and this year they’ve brought in a Yuzu Street Food menu to bring guests flavours from around the world, all under one cosy tipi.

Pigs in blankets are by far the most outlandish part of this menu, but it’s this ingenious dish that places the Yuzu Snowboard Sharing Platter well into its own league of unique Christmas dishes. Think beef brisket and Korean fried chicken bao buns, along with miso caramel wings, loaded duck fries, mini chicken katsu and more.
