    I like my Christmas dinners old skool! Turkey, maybe a cheeky bit of gammon, sausages wrapped in bacon all crunchy, roast potatoes and a feast of veg! So long as there are LOADS of sprouts then I am happy !!!!!

    A great prize, super stuff, thank you!

  8. My favourite Christmas dinner is my Mums. We have it at my house, because it's bigger, and my Mum, her husband and my Dad come over then there is also my Son and I. For the last couple of years we have either beef or lamb. Then we have roast potatos, yorkshire puddings, brussel sprouts, mashed swede and carrots, stuffing and, of course, sausages wrapped in bacon. Starter is goats cheese and cranberries wrapped in parma ham. Pudding is my step-dads favourite, home-made trifle. We save Christmas pudding for Boxing day. I've got the house tidy, my mum does the cooking and the three boys do the washing up....perfect :0)My e-mail is j_ldavisuk@btinternet.com

  9. I have adone a couple of veggie Christmas dinners in the past - one traditional style with a nutroast and one Morrocan inspired which went down a treat. But, well you can't beat turkey and all the trimmings can you? We always have Christmas dinner at mum-in-laws and she really pushes the boat out and offers at least 6 different pudding options!!!

  27. my e-mail is natashaclarewilkinson@hotmail.co.uk and my favourite christmas dinner is our traditional family one! Moist turkey breast served with teeny sausages wrapped in bacon,cranberry sauce, a ball of stuffing, brussel sprouts cooked with chestnuts, roast potatoes and sweet sticky roasted parsnips (hopefully from the garden this year!) carrot batons or chantenay carrots if feeling extravagant! Served with gravy on the side for those who want it!We always have my grandmother's red cabbage - which is her secret recipe!This is followed by christmas pudding set alight, homemade brandy butter and mince pies.It's making me hungry thinking about it!

  28. my family now live close together (a few streets apart) after many years spread across the country. so now christmas dinner prep is spread across three houses as none of us have an oven big enough to cook it all for a large extended family. we normally cook the turkey and always do the pigs in blankets. someone always sneaks in the mandatory brussels! then we get to have a home made christmas cake, if my hubby hasnt eaten the marzipan before the cake is made!

  35. I always enjoy a typical old Christmas dinner with turkey & all the trimmings. You name it, it's on there - including a gammon joint which is always cooked for those who don't like the turkey (but some of us will scoff both!) Plus of course, the pudding comes along when everyone can manage it, lol

  36. I love a traditional turkey dinner. Turkey, at least two trays of sausages wrapped in bacon. Two types of stuffing, every type of vegetable imaginable and extra crunchy roast potatoes cooked in goose fat. Also a special gravy which takes forever to prepare but is so,so worth it!!I cannot tell how much I love our Christmas lunch.

    What a fantastic prize. My favourite Christmas dinner has to be the traditional festive turkey, crispy roast potatoes and loads of fresh seasonal vegetables - not forgetting the stuffing and yorkshire puddings. Great idea - cook your chestnuts in butter with sprouts - even the children will eat them!

  49. On Christmas day, it's got to be roast turkey & all the trimmings, but for the never-ending round of pre-Christmas Christmas dinners that seem to take over December, I tend to go for salmon or something light, saving my turkey for the day itself.

  67. Turkey, bread sauce (lots of), roast potatoes, roast parsnips, and a pile of pigs in blankets. Every year we have a debate over how many to make - like to have enough to keep us going for a few days!

  68. I love the full traditional turkey and all the trimmings, but the best Christmas food for me is the evening buffet of salmon, cold meats, trifle etc. I'm just greedy!
