Recipes Christmas


pigs in mac and cheese

Pigs in Macaroni Cheese

This is a great way to use up any leftover pigs (in blankets) from Christmas dinner. I can say without a doubt that there is none leftover in our house, ever, period. My lot head straight for them bypassing everything else on the table.

bread sauce

Bread Sauce

Easily made ahead of time, bread sauce is the classic accompaniment for the Christmas turkey.

braised red cabbage

Braised Red Cabbage with Apple

I prepare as much of the Christmas dinner as possible in advance. Braised red cabbage can be made and kept in the fridge a couple of days beforehand.

pigs in blankets

Pigs in Blankets

Christmas dinner would not be the same without pigs in blankets. These delicious little porky gems make the perfect accompaniment.

christmas pudding

Christmas Pudding

There are more Christmas pudding recipes on the web and in cookbooks than you can shake a stick at, as the old saying goes. The most often quoted ones seem to be those from Mary Berry and Jamie Oliver. My featured recipe is the one my eldest son uses.

christmas dinner traybake

Christmas Dinner Traybake

Maybe you only have a small kitchen or a studio and space is limited? Look no further, with this traybake you can have the taste and smells of Christmas dinner using just one baking tray.

baked portobello mushrooms

Baked Portobello Mushrooms

Equally good as a side or main dish, these baked portobello mushrooms are full of flavour and make a great vegetarian option for Christmas day.

pot roast pheasant

Roasting Pheasant

Tender and succulent, roast pheasant cooked properly has a subtle game flavour and is a lean healthy alternative to chicken or turkey.
