A master baker has built the ultimate Christmas dinner with all the trimmings - stuffed neatly inside a convenient festive pie.  

Gareth Mason's yuletide pie, which could feed a family of four, contains turkey, vegetables, stuffing and even pigs in blankets, all crammed within a crust and bound together with gravy. 

The pastry measures 10inches in diameter and five inches deep, weighing more than 35 ounces and boasts roughly 3,500 calories in total. 

Mr Mason, 34, put together the pie while experimenting with a festive menu at the Absolute Bar and Bistro in Westhoughton, Bolton, where he is head chef.

He blind-baked the pastry and pre-roasted the ingredients before filling the crust. 

The pie will not yet be for sale on his menu, but Mr Mason is planning to do a smaller version closer to Christmas.

Gareth Mason 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. Portion servings listed above are estimates
