inseparable phrasal verb: pig out

pig-out-bucket1

Today I have an expression which is good for the holidays: “pig out”. It is used to talk about eating a lot of food. For example:

My friend and I pigged out on spaghetti at an Italian restaurant last night.

My family and I always pig out on Christmas Day. My mom makes so much food.

Don’t pig out when you go to the buffet! The last time you did that you had a stomachache.

When we talk about the particular food we eat a lot of, we use the preposition “on” between “pig out” and the food, as in the first example.
