Christmas is one of the busiest times of the year, especially in the kitchen! The list seems never ending. Not only do you have to think about Christmas Dinner, but you can’t forget about everything in between – nibbles, breakfasts, dinners and lunches before and after Christmas Day.
Whether you are going to friends or family with a plate of nibbles, or having guests over for a dinner party, we have put together some tasty, homemade and freezer friendly recipes you can make in advance as your go-to for the festive season.
Sausage rolls are a favourite snack any time of the year. The great thing about them is they are super easy to make, and you can make them with any type or flavour of sausage meat, even using ready made sausages and just removing the skin. With this in mind, you can be creative with your selection, with an array of different flavours, and as it’s Christmas, why not try our Award Winning festive Mrs Christmas sausages with pork, bacon, stuffing and cranberry. Everything festive all in one!
Another great snack to make and have ready in the freezer for when you need, are sausage pinwheels, or sausage danish. Again, using any flavour sausage meat, together with homemade puff pastry, you can whip up an impressive party snack in less than an hour.
Homemade stuffing is always worth making in advance and keeping in the freezer ready for Christmas Day. Stuffing freezes beautifully, so making it in advance will be one less thing to worry about on the day and taste just as good as it did when you made it.
If you don’t have time to even make anything in advance, we have plenty of ready to bake, homemade must haves for Christmas Day – award-winning pigs in blankets, homemade sausage rolls, or mince turnovers for a sweet treat. Everything is handmade with care and attention, allowing you to just pop it in the oven and serve up a tasty homemade treat with minimal fuss.
