1) Christmas dinner in a pasty!

Here's an entire "three-course Christmas dinner" inside a pasty!

The first third is the starter - there's pâté, apple chutney and melba toast. Next, in the middle, there's the main course turkey with stuffing, potato, pigs in blankets, cranberries and a sauce. And not forgetting dessert at the end of the pasty - a Christmas pudding. All that inside one pasty!

2) Deep-fried Christmas dinner

A Scottish fish and chip shop is offering an entire deep-fried Christmas dinner. Turkey, battered Brussels sprouts, carrots and parsnip fritters all served with a giant pig-in-a-blanket - a battered sausage - and a deep-fried mince pie to top it all off.

You can get the flavours of a Christmas dinner with a variety of crisps. Lots of shops and crisp makers have got special Christmas themed flavours. Brussels sprouts, pigs in blankets and turkey with sage and onion are some of the flavours which means you could put together a Christmas dinner just using crisps! Hmmm, that doesn't sound very healthy.

5) Christmas dinner for the pets

You'll most likely want your pets to be involved in the festive fun but there are lots of Christmas dinner foods that your pets should NOT be eating and could make them ill. But don't worry because there are Christmas dinners for pets too like specially made dog food with turkey, parsnips and cranberries which means they can have a festive dinner too.
