​Roast Potatoes Voted Best Part Of Christmas Dinner Over Pigs-In-Blankets

​Roast Potatoes Voted Best Part Of Christmas Dinner Over Pigs-In-Blankets

Roast potatoes have been voted the best bit of a Christmas dinner and have trumped pigs-in-blankets for the top spot.

A study of 2,000 Brits has revealed 58 per cent consider roasties to be the ultimate Christmas dinner addition.

We have to say it's not too surprising. While sausages wrapped in bacon rank highly for us, you can't beat a good spud - especially your family's home made ones that are crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside.

But outrageously, pigs-in-blankets didn't even come in second place, and the reason isn't because more people are becoming vegetarian and vegan, it's because it was pipped to the post by turkey - of all things!

Look, we understand turkey is a vital part of Christmas Day, but pigs-in-blankets are just so much tastier, especially since most people struggle to cook the giant bird well. C'mon, we've all had dry turkey...

The stats from McCain's 'Nation's Conversation' report, also confirm that many Brits love their sprouts, with the divisive veggies proving more popular than cauliflower cheese, parsnips and Christmas pudding.

In fact, a respectable 17 per cent of people bigged them up as their number one trimming.

They really are a love/hate vegetable though, with 29 per cent citing them as their least favourite part of their dinner. Preach. We'll pass on those, thank you.

What we will get on board with, is the one in five people who said Yorkshire Puddings are a vital part of a roast dinner.

Yes aunty Karen, you better believe we're serving Yorkies without beef, but it doesn't matter because it's Christmas!

Plus, in our opinion, Yorkshires go with everything, particularly gravy, so we'll be piling them high on the plate come 25th December.

And if you don't agree, that's cool - more for us.
