Picture this: your nan’s Sunday roast dinner put into one hot toastie that you can eat whilst standing or on the go. Too good to be true? Not anymore! This year’s Christmas at City Social will host, what we believe to be, the first Christmas dinner in a toastie.
Dubbed the ‘Roastie Toastie’, these carby-creations will appear throughout City Social, which is taking place under the Suffolk Street Queensway underpass from 15 November to 22 December.
Toasted between two slices of bread, you’ll find deliciously tender pieces of turkey, a sweet layer of crisp cranberry sauce, all the traditional Christmas veg and crispy taters. This mouth-watering mountain is then golden toasted, before being served with a succulent sausage wrapped in sweet cure bacon and a pot of steaming, thick gravy for dunking. The ultimate comfort food on a cold winter night, the Roastie Toastie is the best thing since sliced bread!
Matt Elson, the man behind the Roastie Toastie, commented:
“Being completely honest, the idea for Roastie Toastie came from a hangover-fuelled Sunday morning in the Jewellery Quarter. Despite this, we stand by its validity, even now we’re sober! The trusty toastie has proved its worth as a staple snack and we firmly believe that a roast dinner is too good to serve just on Sundays. This brilliant, alternative way to enjoy the two together has already proved a crowd-pleaser in our household, and we can’t wait to bring it to the masses.”
Roastie Toasties will be served at City Social, the five-week event that boasts chalet stalls selling local food, drink, crafts and gifts, alongside live music, Sunday film screenings and plenty of seating. And with the outdoor heaters, your fingers will be as roastie as your toastie.
