Christmas Day just wouldn't be the same without a proper festive feast! But - with the big day looking a bit different than normal this year, our dinner menus might be getting tweaked a little to feed a smaller crowd. What could you not be without on your dinner plate on Christmas Day though? Maybe you're the designated turkey carver, or you couldn't live without a pile of sprouts on your plate - or perhaps you're ALL about the dessert?? We caught up with Adele, Chris and Alistair from our head office to find out what they love best about Christmas dinner!
"I'm here for the side dishes! I'm a bit of a grazer and like to have a bit of everything on my plate to pick at anyway, so Christmas dinner is no exception. We normally feast on turkey and glazed ham for the main course - but the real stars of the show for me are stuffing, roast potatoes, pigs in blankets and a really good gravy. Growing up my mum always made potato croquettes on Christmas Day for the kids (game changer), and honestly if you haven't tried them with your Christmas dinner please give them a try! Another top tip of mine is mashing a roast potato into homemade gravy to add flavour and thicken it up - you're welcome!"
"Pigs in blankets is by far the best thing about Xmas dinner, look forward to them every year! Overall though there’s no better feeling than being around family and friends during Xmas dinner. That’s ultimately the best part about Christmas dinner."
Yeah yeah yeah, turkey's great an all that, but the sprouts, parsnips, stuffing, bread sauce are what it's all about - can't get enough of them. Totally ignored 364 days of the year, but hey, Christmas day my plate is overloaded with 'em. Then on boxing day I realise why I don't touch them the rest of the year ...So lets hear it for the sprouts... (parp)"
