If you would rather play your new video game than sit down for Christmas dinner with the family, a British graphic designer might have the answer for your growling stomach.

Chris Godfrey, 24, has created the Christmas "tinner" - a can of food that consists of nine layers of processed festive food.

Godfrey combined scrambled egg and bacon, two mince pies, turkey and potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, Brussel sprouts (or broccoli if you're not a fan of sprouts), roast carrots and parsnips, and Christmas pudding into one compact meal.

"I tried to ensure when creating the menu that all the flavours complemented one another and it was designed so that gamers can tuck into one layer at a time, starting with breakfast and finishing off with Christmas pudding - the perfect festive meal without any of the fuss," the Kingston University student said in a release Tuesday.

The tinned meal is being sold in the U.K. by video game retailer GAME.
