For some, the run up to Christmas doesn’t mean waiting for Santa to arrive, it means waiting for the festive bake to be back on the heated shelves of their local Greggs.
This year, we’ve also got the luxury of being able to order from Greggs on Just Eat, with festive goodies coming right to our front doors during lockdown and beyond.
The Pigs Under Blanket Baguette is already available on the breakfast menu, with bacon, sausage, pork, sage and onion stuffing with a cranberry and port sauce stuffed inside your roll.
The next part of the Christmas menu launches Thursday 5 November. Here’s what you can expect.
The iconic Festive Bake is back for 2020!
The Christmas favourite has pieces of chicken breast, sage and onion stuffing, and sweetcure bacon in a creamy sage and cranberry sauce. All encased in golden puff pastry with a crunchy crumb topping.
