MORRISONS has begun selling sausage rolls that are twice the size of Greggs’ for just £1.
The national supermarket chain has today launched the new savoury treat, which is believed to be the biggest in the whole of the UK.
It weighs half a kilo and is ‘double the length and four times the weight of some high street competitors’, according to the Morrisons PR bods.
Available from today from the supermarket on Hillmore Road, Laceby, the foot long sausage roll is freshly baked in-store by its Market Street bakers, with ‘seasoned pork meat and wrapped in a crisp, golden flaky pastry’.
The sausage roll has to be served on a special tray that holds its weight, rather than being served in just the traditional paper bag.
Morrisons has created the giant roll after listening to its customers, who said that ‘they wanted a bigger version of the British classic.’
“It could be enjoyed as part of a picnic, shared with the family, or eaten by customers with big appetites,” says the supermarket.
The sausage roll is also being launched in time for the start of the football season to be the ‘ultimate match day pie experience’.
