Move over pigs in blankets, cows in quilts have arrived

The pubs, famed for their generous portions, have introduced “cows in quilt”s - seasonal sliders to make their Christmas menu stand out from the crowd with a new twist on a festive favourite.

Kerry Burton, general manager at the Halcyon, said: “Christmas is always a magical time of year, but here in Peterborough we wanted to take this year’s celebrations to a whole new level by turning a Christmas dinner staple on its head.

“Pigs in blankets have long been the star of many a Christmas dinner plate, and we thought it was time we gave the spotlight to a new seasonal side dish, by creating something which pays homage to a true pub classic – the beef burger.
