THE MAIN EVENT & TRIMMINGS
Asda is not short of show-stopping WOW moments when it comes to the most important meal of the day, and while the UK Supermarket shelves won’t be short of turkeys, it’s also introduced new additions including Extra Special Muscovado & Sea Salt Cured Scottish Smoked Salmon, Extra Special British Slow Cooked Beef Shin and a stunning Vegan Turkey Joint with caramelised onion and herb stuffing.
However, if its turkey you want, then the easy to carve boneless turkey centrepiece or Extra Special Turkey Crown in a roasting bag will stand out on your dinner table.
Like last year, pigs in blankets are one of the hot choices for sides and you can choose from the 12 pigs in blankets, a giant pig in blanket sausage roll and for Vegans, the Vegan Spiced Apple Cocktail Sausages will hit the spot.
Highlights also include Cauliflower Cheese with Sweet Potato & Cranberry Wellington, Turkey Wellington stuffed with a pig in blanket centre and Candied Pigs in Blankets with a sachet of spiced sugar to be added before cooking, now if this doesn’t scream boxing day indulgence we don’t know what does.

Everyone’s favourite course, right? and ASDA has certainly not let us down with this lot! From a Chocolate Orange Opera to the brand new bowl dessert which also has cinnamon rolls inside, who needs a spoon, certainly not us!
However, if we had to choose just one, it would have to be Bruce the Brussels Sprout Cake which is filled with delicious layers of chocolate sponge and lashings of chocolate frosting, a sprout never sounded so-o good.
