The burger aficianados have spent some time in the lab figuring out how to fit a Christmas dinner into a single burger, and by god they’ve only gone and done it. On offer until December 23, burger fans will definitely want to check this one out.

Between two house-brioche buns - the madmen have managed to fit a fillet of southern fried chicken, house chestnut stuffing, double bacon, and cranberry jam - all smothered in chicken gravy.

El Perro Negro Founder, Nick Watkins spoke of his excitement about the launch: “We’re not into gimmicks, but cluck it, it’s Christmas! We can’t wait for our customers to try our new festive burger.

“An El Perro Negro twist on a traditional Christmas dinner. Tasty, but very naughty! We know people are going to love it.”

Yorkshire puddings are the star of any good Christmas roast (in this humble reporters opinion) - so what more could you ask for than a Yorkshire pud stuffed with all the trimmings in wrap form?

Stuffed full of meat, stuffing, vegetables, and gravy - they don’t look pretty but they’re surprisingly easy to eat. You can find these bad boys on offer at the Glasgow Fort Christmas Market.

Lunch - Pigs in blankets loaded fries

Popular west-end cafe, Lunch, have remixed their classic mac and cheese loaded fried with a festive twist. Unveiling the beast of a meal earlier this month, the pigs in blankets loaded fries really need to be seen to be believed.

The chips are topped with mac and cheese, pigs and blankets, and crispy bacon bits, and are just one of the festive menu items the cafe is offering to Glaswegians. Also on the menu is a baked camembert cranberry mozzarella toastie - which is probably the cheesiest toastie you can get in Glasgow in 2022.

If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, they also offer the traditional Christmas menu, including Roast Turkey with all the trimmings, a vegan mushroom nut roast, and even a Sea Trout with a sorrel crust.

Probably the poshest option for a Christmas meal out of the lot - just imagine the look on your friend’s faces when you tell them you had Christmas dinner in the illustrious Committee Room No.9.

On offer at the prestigious restaurant is Turkey Jambalaya - one of the two options for the main course at the restaurant, the other being a vegan feta & butternut squash wellington - which depending on who you ask, is an equally weird Christmas menu offering.
