    Mr Mason said: ‘It’s a whole hunk of pie. I wouldn’t even want to try to count the calories in it.

    ‘We’ve got shredded sprouts, roast carrots, parsnip, diced turkey breast, roast potatoes, stuffing balls and turkey gravyall encased in a big, thick shortcrust pastry shell.

    ‘It would feed a family of four in one pie, easily. It’s a self-contained Christmas dinner. You could just drop it off on Christmas day and all the leg work is done.

    ‘I made the pastry quite thick so it holds itself in the dish. I used about 500g of pastry, the pie itself must be at least 1kg with the filling. It’s a good feast.

    He dubbed the pie a ‘northerner’s best Christmas present’, adding that turkey gravy was used to bind the pie together, and also poured over the top for flavour.

    Mr Mason added: '나는 생각했다 ”I wonder what a Christmas dinner tastes like in a pie”.

    ‘It’s actually delicious. It tastes exactly the same as Christmas dinner.

    ‘I did it just to experiment to see how it would work and taste.

    ‘We’ll have a festive menu throughout December, I’ll probably put a pie on but it will be a bit smaller than this one.

    Mr Mason had also created a ‘Lancashire Eggafter much debate over whether a Scotch Egg was a substantial meal.

    Using a duck eggwhich is biggerhe layered pork, black pudding and turkey before coating it in sage and onion Panko for a festive theme.

    He had said: ‘The idea behind the egg was to poke some fun at the whole substantial meal debate over scotch eggs in pubs.

    ‘People were arguing that if you put a side salad with it, does it make it a substantial meal?

    ‘I used a duck egg because it’s bigger for a start, covered it in pork sausage meat and coated in sage and onion and it’s served with a side salad.

    ‘Both meals are undoubtedly substantial, so either would be great for a pub looking to serve beer too.
