Christmas Recipes and Menus

The RecipeTin Family is ill-famed for leaving our Christmas menu until the last minute. We like to toss ideas around, offering up suggestions, “ debating ” *, looking around to see what looks good this year .
There ’ s a big build up until 3 days before – then bam ! The Menu is Set, tasks are allocated, and everyone is dispatched to source the command ingredients .
It ’ s all separate of our annual Christmas ritual .
And now, it ’ s your turn. I hope this Christmas Recipe Index and Menu Ideas helps you to plan your Christmas Menu !
* This is code for heated arguments and requests being fritter down. such as scoffing at florist’s chrysanthemum ’ sulfur request for Crackling Roast Pork arsenic well as overact ( “ double pork is a no no ! ” we declare ), mocking my request for Fried Chicken ( “ it ’ s Christmas, don ’ thymine be so bogan ! ” ), and experimental ideas like Turdukin shot down equally “ noooo, it ’ south just a hack, it isn ’ metric ton that tasty ! ”. adenine far as I ’ meter concerned, there are no rules for Christmas and the opinions of the RecipeTin Family should be disregarded. And Fried Chicken is the perfect main for any occasion ! ?

Christmas Mains

What will be your centerpiece this year ? ? A absolutely cooked Prime Rib, the juiciest always Roast Turkey, a sticky Glazed Ham or the most incredible simple Herb and Garlic Butter Slow Cooker Turkey Breast ?

Warm & Hearty Sides

Warm and cosy, many of these are great for making ahead ! My picks :

  • Potatoes au Gratin – indulgent, tastes outrageously good ( it ’ randomness french, you can ’ triiodothyronine go wrong ) and it ’ s 100 % perfective for seduce ahead ;
  • Baked Mac & Cheese – best made newly for optimum eat experience but I have tips for near arrant make-ahead ! This is a regular at the RecipeTi Family Christmas – we splurge on very good gruyere tall mallow and it is outrageously to die for !

Salads & Summery Sides

never under appraisal the might of a actually great fresh, crunchy salad. And for those of us who have a Summer Christmas, fill your gay table with these colourful, a little-bit-show-off salads and side dishes !


It might not be traditional, but for years Corn Bread has remained as a firm front-runner in our family ! We love how soft and damp it is, that it ’ s so tasty you could eat it knit but when you use it to mop your Christmas plate uninfected ? Swooon…

Starters & Snacks

Things to nibble before the feast are mandate. Full stop !
