Best Christmas Dinner Recipes?

So, I know it’s a little early but i’m hosting Christmas for my husband’s brothers this year and wondered what people’s best or favourite recipes were/are so I can get some inspo!


Some great chefs gave us some fun ideas last year!


I swear by Jamie Oliver’s master plan – you adjust the Christmas dinner recipes based on the number of people you’re cooking for what time you want to eat. You’ll need about 8 big bunches of sage but everything is delicious!

Plus, I love his starter of homemade smoked salmon pate! Very fresh and easy to prep in advance:

If you like a veggie option also, this wellington is a hit every year in my family Ultimate Vegan Christmas Roast Wellington - Gaz Oakley

Oooo will take a look at the master plan - Timings for me are always tough as we have such a small kitchen and oven, and it’s just me cooking!

Ok so as of now I have the following recipes i’m thinking of doing:

  • Champagne and lemon prawn vol-au vents
  • Spiced and Glazed Lamb
  • Roast Carrots with Tahini and hazelnuts
  • Roast potatoes
  • Dauphinoise Potatoes
  • Garlic Parmesan Sprouts
  • Mushroom wellington (individual one for a veggie)
  • Sherry Trifle
  • Chrsitmas Cake
  • Chestnut and Chocolate Yule Log

I make Tom kerridge Christmas carrots every year and everyone loves them, and it’s really easy.
