Oh Christmas tree • For a stunning alternative to cake, make our snowy meringue tower the star of the show this year
Share the joy • Our new Big Day recipes are so memorable, you’ll revisit them year after year. Whether you’re looking for a twist on a classic or something completely different, we’ve got something extra-special for you
Roasted garlic & herb turkey crown • This year we’re showcasing a turkey crown, as it’s quicker and easier to roast than a whole bird. Roasting the garlic first mellows out its flavour and makes it soft, so it can be easily mashed into the butter. You can also melt it over steak or steamed veg.
Pepper-crusted roast beef with béarnaise butter • Beef and béarnaise is a classic pairing, but the sauce is tricky to make at the best of times without having to worry about the rest of the Christmas lunch. Here, we’ve transformed it into a flavoured butter for ease – it’s just as good.
Parsnip roast wreath with marsala gravy • Our vegetarian roast is deeply savoury and almost stuffing-like in texture. It makes a stunning main or side dish for turkey.
MICROWAVE SIDES • Save time and energy costs, as well as hob and oven space, with these quick versions of classic sides. All timings below are based on a 750-watt microwave, so adjust according to your model.
SPECIAL TWISTS • Upgrade your usual sides with easy but impressive tweaks – a pinch of parmesan and thyme enhances traditional yorkies, miso and maple complement sweet parsnips, and a pig-in-a-blanket pinwheel is a surefire crowd-pleaser.
MUST-HAVE TRIMMINGS • Traditional roasties, stuffing and vibrant carrots feature on many of our Christmas dinner tables, and these recipes help you make them with ease.
MAKE-AHEAD SAUCES • To take the last-minute stress out of preparing the big meal, make your sauces ahead. Our recipes for bread sauce, gravy and cranberry sauce will please everyone, and can be made well in advance of dinnertime.
