Would you eat an Easter egg… made of meat?
Tom Hixson’s butchers have perfected the easter gift for all meat-lovers, if you think you can stomach it!
It’s Easter and you’re sitting down to tuck into your usual chocolate egg. But wait, something feels different, heavier. And it smells different too. This isn’t your usual chocolate egg…
That’s right, Tom Hixson’s butchers are set to release a gourmet Easter egg this year – made entirely of meat.
The butcher’s teased their 1-kilogram spherical egg-shaped Wagyu roasting joint on social media this week.
As part of their Gourmet Collection, the 100% Wagyu beef egg will be ready available for the Easter period.
Described as superbly tender with natural marbling, these hand-trimmed joints start at 1kg. That’s a decent sized roasting joint for a meat loving couple or a particularly hungry loved one.

If you’re slightly put off by the idea of a perfectly spherical piece of meat (yikes), then not to worry. The fine meat procurers make clear you can personally customise the meat egg to any, “portion size that fits your mood or palette.”
The meat egg is packaged in a sophisticated navy blue box, just like the upmarket choccy eggs you’d see on the promo isles of your local supermarket. Infact, if you blurred your eyes a little, the egg almost passes for a real chocolate Easter egg. That is, until you take a closer look and notice the, ‘exquisitely marbled hand trimmed Wagyu beef’ ovum on the inside.
Creator George Hixon says the team wanted to, “Create something truly unique that hasn’t been done before, celebrating the easter occasion with the finest quality meats.” This egg really does deserve gold medal status when it comes to originality, especially when it comes to price.
If you’re thinking of gifting this top quality roasting joint for the meat lover in your life this Easter, The Meatster egg will set you back £275. Now that really does trump my beloved £1.50 Dairy Milk.
Tom Hixson of Smithfield’s Wagyu egg really is in a whole league of its own, on every level. If you can see past its somewhat displeasing shape (or maybe you’re into that!), you see this meat egg is built for purpose, placing itself among the finest cuts of beef in the butchers.
If you are interested, the Measter Egg will be available from Tom Hixson butchers to order 'soon'.

The question is: would you splash out for this gourmet take on the Easter classic? Or like me, are sweet cheap thrills more your bag?
