We all look forward to sitting down around the dinner table with family at Christmas time. And cooking up a cracking Christmas feast is a tradition as well loved as it rewarding. But between all the prepping, chopping, simmering, sizzling, frying, roasting and basting involved in filling that dinner table with delicious Christmas food, it can be easy to miss out on some of the magic of spending time with those people who make the day so special.

So we’ve come up with a few new recipes to help everyone spend a little less time in the kitchen and a little more time relaxing with friends and family these holidays.

Here’s our present to you:  the perfect Christmas dinner, with delicious trimmings like fresh winter veggies, sage and shallot stuffing and cranberry sauce, cooked from scratch and still on the table in under an hour.

For the main course, choose between…

Turkey Dinner With All The Trimmings

To create this Christmas classic you’ll wrap turkey breast in streaky smoked bacon, fry in a pan till crispy and roast in the oven until perfectly tender. You’ll create your own sage and onion stuffing from scratch, cook up the ultimate crunchy-on-the-outside-fluffy-on-the-inside roast potatoes and serve with chantenay carrots, brussels sprouts, honey-baked parsnips, a gorgeous homemade gravy and a generous dollop of our quick cranberry sauce.

The key to Christmas dinner success is all down to timing, so we’ve planned this one meticulously to make it as stress-free as possible, with all the flavours you know and love ready in under an hour!

Vegetarian Pistachio & Cranberry Nut Roast

Never has a nut roast been so simple and delicious! For this vegetarian recipe, you’ll cook up finely chopped onions with tasty portobello mushrooms, combine with sage, lentils, breadcrumbs, mature cheddar, sweet and tangy dried cranberries and raw pistachios. Pop in the oven and roast to perfection. Serve with crunchy golden roasted potatoes, chantenay carrots, Brussels sprouts, parsnips, and lashings of homemade gravy.
