Pigs in Blankets

I found something today in a grocery shop. A label hanging on a ceiling named "Pigs in Blankets".

Everyday in UK I'm always trying to know the meaning of every British English words which I'm not familiar for I am using American English as my second language. I consult with my British friend what's the meaning of that and what is that kind of stuff?

At first he laughs because he knows what's on my mind. Pigs in blankets is a colloquial British name given to a sausages wrapped in bacon (streaky bacon is most common). Bacon is the blanket. It is now considered a traditional part of the Christmas meal.

One way of surviving in UK is to know also their own language or else you might get lost.

Hello salamat sa bisita I do appreciate it. When I read your post about pigs in the blanket I couldn't resist to leave a comment. One time hubby and I went to restaurant and saw this pigs in the blanket in their menu...I was very curious so I ordered it though hubby already told me what it was. When my ordered arrived the blanket is a pancake and inside is a sausage lol!

Wow; I wish i could go to England, UK. That is one my dream destinations other than New York.

Regarding English, there are English words that are not used in America such as bloke instead of fellow. car park for parking lot, flyover versus overpass, flat for apartment, biscuit for cookie. ;-) No idea about pigs in blankets. Wow, good name for a restaurant, eh? ;-) Cheers Roy!
