AN award-winning independent butchers and pie makers have created the longest-know sausage roll in the UK, just in time for Father's Day.

Higginsons of Grange are attempting to make this Father's Day more memorable with this Ultimate Father's Day gift.

The new 'supersize sausage roll' comes in a gift box and with pastry letters spelling 'Happy Father's Day'. The gift also includes a free bottle of local Hawkshead Brewery Windermere Pale Ale for good measure.

The team at Higginsons have many years of specialist knowledge and expertise in making pastry products, including their sausage rolls.

Each week, the family business make by hand more than two thousand regular sausage rolls and more than three thousands pies. Their new giant sausage rolls will be hand-made in the same way and generously filled with a traditional recipe seasoned pork sausage meat, encased in a golden, flaky pastry.

Higginsons ‘Supersize Sausage Rolls’ are thought to be the longest ever sold in the UK at a whopping 23 inches.

Higginsons of Grange are known for their innovative creations, a principle which underpins the foundations of all the business members of the butchers QGuild. The QGuild, who represent the nation’s independent quality butchers have been proud to name Higginsons as a member since its inception over 30 years ago.

QGuild manager, Gordon Wallace, said “Mark Porter and his team at Higginsons are always brimming with ideas and they deliver time and time again. Their most recent innovation, the Ultimate Father Day’s Supersize Sausage Roll Gift pack continues in that vein bringing a welcome, light-hearted and fun response to that perennial question ‘What can we get Dad for Father’s Day?’”.

Managing Director of Higginsons, Mark Porter, said: “Our Supersize Sausage Roll is four times longer than our usual Sausage Rolls, which are quite large in themselves.

“Our Sausage Rolls are one of our signature products and are loved by customers of all ages, but particularly dads! We wanted to create a special Father’s Day Sausage Roll that has the WOW factor and we hope that they’ll go down a storm.”

If you know a dad that would love to take on the tasty challenge of this supersized treat, Higginsons Ultimate Father’s Day gift is available for pre-order, for collection from their shop in Grange-over-Sands on June 18 and 19 and is priced at £15.00.
