One Christmas trimming that is often forgotten about for coeliacs is pigs in blankets. I know you can just buy gluten free chipolata sausages and wrap smoked bacon around them, however, the purpose of this ‘12 days of a gluten free Christmas‘ series of blogs is to make it very easy for caterers to source and purchase gluten free alternatives.
Like many of the Christmas foods we have tried for this, I have never been offered gluten free pigs in blankets when eating out. My dining companions get the whole shebang – stuffing, pigs in blankets, gravy and I end up with just the meat and vegetables. There is plenty of time to source some of these trimmings and shove them in the freezer for your coeliac diners. I cannot over emphasise what a difference it would make to mine (and my fellow coeliacs) enjoyment of a Christmas meal out.
As it happens, we had quite a tough time finding pigs in blankets. In fact at the time of taste testing, only three retailers sold them. Hopefully, as we creep closer to the main day there may be more stockists.
As always, all of the products are reviewed independently and the commentary is our own.
