‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the town,

I was searching for a Pie but none I could find.
The shops were so busy and car parks so full, 
My belly so empty with nothing at all!
The aisle I did walk with a basket in tow, 
my head held high going row to row.
When all of a sudden, what did I see, 
a Cheese and Onion treat just waiting for me.
The elbows came out, I lunged for the pie,
I tipped over trolleys and let out a sigh.
For the Hollands Pie was now in my grasp,
I needed some gravy and barm cake so fast!

I live in Wigan and pies are our calling,

for Dinner, Lunch, Breakfast in the morning.

With pie in hand, gravy and barm, 

I fetch a few more, it couldn’t do harm.


I head to the house, microwave, 2 minutes they’re in, 

I cut open a barm, mix gravy and ping!

Too hot to handle, I put on to my plate,


the pie smells amazing isn’t it great.

I pour over gravy, thick and plenty,
and close up the barm cake and countdown from 20.
Taking a big bite, the pie’s getting eaten, 
it won’t be long before hunger is beaten.
I finish the lot and have an idea, 
it’s nearly the 25th, Christmas is near.
We’ve been good this year the big man will come, 
no more sherry and milk in his tum.

We’ll prepare a pie, meat and potato, 

or something vegetarian to take home for later.

Dropping those presents all around the world,

fuelled by pie, you’ll do Wigan proud!

Hope you liked my pie poem dedicated to Hollands for their #HollandsComfortFood campaign for the release of their Wyke Farms Cheesy Pies. 

Their deep fill mature cheddar cheese & onion pies are literally flying off the shelves, with this frozen number now high on the list. As meat free diets continue to increase, those lovers of pastry based produce don’t need to give up on a good pie.

Just 5 minutes in the microwave from frozen, it’s a great way to get your pie on!
