It’s perfect to tear and share as part of your festive buffet, or would also be a tasty starter.

The perfect centrepiece for your Christmas table, and sure to delight all your friends and family.

This is a delicately spiced British carvery lamb leg with rosemary, with a rich ruby port and rosemary jus.

Made especially for vegetarians so that they don’t have to miss out on what is so often classed as the ‘main event’ of Christmas dinner.

This delicious dish is also new from Sainsbury’s for Christmas 2021, and it shows how not all vegetarian mains have to be a meat substitute.

A fantastic starter that combines two of the most decadent Christmas flavours, but also one that won’t overwhelm the palette or fill you up too much before the main meal to come - rather whet your appetite.

Serves 6 people.


For your Christmas meal, the vegetables are almost as important as what you have as your centrepiece.

Pigs in blankets are a really important part of the Christmas meal for so many of us, and these are extra special.

There has been concerns that their might be pigs in blanket shortages this year, but that doesn’t seem to be the case.

This is a 1 metre long pig in blanket Christmas tree which is made using our TTD pork sausage.

It’s then hand wrapped in Taste the Difference oak smoked streaky bacon and decorated with cranberry baubles and rosemary tinsel sprigs.

This is sure to be a showstopper for your festive feast. It’s a great dish to present on the table as it looks great, and then guests can each cut off a portion of themselves.

The outdoor bred pork in this product comes from producers inspected to RSPCA welfare standards by the RSPCA’s independently certified farm assurance scheme.

Serves 6 people.

A deliciously saucy and cheesy dauphinoise is a great alternative to the traditional roast potato for your main festive meal, or can be a great treat on Christmas Eve or Boxing Day.

There’s also a little nutmeg added because it’s Christmas, of course.

Serves 8 people.
