Asda reveals its Christmas range so you can start planning the festive dinner

Asda has revealed its 2019 Christmas range and the new treats are sure to get people in the festive mood.

From savoury delights to sweet treats, it features something for everyone, including vegans.

The two star dishes from this year’s selection is a 12-piece pigs in blankets centrepiece and a towering turkey burger.

Don’t let the fact it’s a burger fool you, this is a seasonal snack of massive proportions.

Bite into smoked and pulled turkey, pork, sage and onion stuffing, Christmas coleslaw and a bubble and squeak fritter, all stuffed in-between two slices of a brioche bun.

If that’s not festive, we don’t know what is.

Before you dig into the hefty mains, treat your guests to a selection of minis, such as posh hot dogs, cheeseburgers and fish and chips, paired with a glass of bubbly.

Or, if you’d rather eat your booze, try the prawn and chorizo puff pastry, which has been coated in prosecco sauce.

For dessert, Asda has created a twist on a traditional snack with its mince pie cookies, as well as moreish champagne truffles.

The little ones can dig into a sponge cake with raspberry jam and icing, presented in the form of Pip the Penguin or try the ‘elf’-themed ice cream.

It comes in a festive white, red and green colour, tastes like candy floss and has a raspberry compote.

Top with some candy canes to make it extra jolly.

As for vegans, there are two options on offer, starting with a crispy vegan Wellington that looks a bit like a Greggs pasty, jam-packed with chickpeas, cranberries, apricots and spices.

Then stuff your face full of vegan cranberry and apple stuffing balls.

Still not satiated that festive appetite?

Pick up some fried Quality Street sweets or a Christmas hamper filled with cheese, crackers and chutney.

We’ve put together a helpful guide to the best hampers for 2019, including affordable options from Aldi and of course, the holy grail of hampers from Fortnum & Mason.

It’s going to be a delicious Christmas.
