DECEMBER – Pigs in Blankets

1st December 2022

A delicious part of any traditional Christmas dinner, Pigs in Blankets emerge as a flavour profile in many sectors. As all Create Flavours flavourings are vegan, this combination of succulent sausage and smoky bacon allows everyone, including those on a restricted diet, to indulge in this traditional winter treat.

Pigs in Blankets are trending in many sectors including the meat free and especially in the snack seasoning with many supermarket brands promoting their own Pigs in Blankets crisps, and vegan varieties being produced in the meat free aisles.

The flavour 

Traditionally compromising of a chipolata sausage wrapped in smoked streaky bacon our pigs in blankets flavour replicates this truly, fatty sausage notes with mild herb undertones coupled with subtle smoky meaty bacon top note.

Our vegan suitable and allergen controlled CLN-92599 flavour enhances meaty, smoky tastes and succulents, boosting top note flavours of the sausage and bacon elements.

Global origins

Variants of the pig in blanket are found across the world. American pigs in blankets are wrapped in pastry (which should surely be called a sausage roll!) The UK version which is wrapped in bacon first appeared in British cookbooks in the 1920’s – with the origins coming across with traders from Asia which Anglo Saxons adapted to the bacon wrapped sausage we know today.

How to use

Aside from the appearance on traditional Christmas lunches pigs in blankets are also found on artisan Hotdog menus and trend in the barbeque sector in summer.

Trending categories

Currently seasonally trending in the meat sector, the flavour of pigs in blankets is also trending in snack seasonings, predominantly through crisps and even new launches in the sauce sector with – believe it or not – pigs in blankets mayonnaise!

Flavour pairings

Evocating memories of Christmas dinners rich gravy profiles compliment pigs in blankets.  Fruity compotes and chutney such as red onion marmalade of tomato and chilli jam also compliment the meaty savoury flavours.

Flexible delivery
