In today’s blog I will be ranking my typical Christmas dinner giving a my views on each item.
Pigs in blankets – 100/10 these are a stable to a British Christmas dinner where they only appear upon the 25th of December. For anyone who does not live in Britain, this dish is sausages wrapped in bacon.
Roast potatoes – 10/10 when made perfectly they are crispy on the outside being fluffy in the centre.
Cranberry sauce – 9/10 game changing to add a new flavour onto your plate.
Roasted parsnips – 9/10 parsnips are just below roasties due to being just as tasty but never as elite as roast potatoes.
Sage and Onion Stuffing – 9/10 stuffing brings the plate together and is my job to make on Christmas. The secret is to add butter to make it 10x better.
Gravy – 8/10 it is standard for a Sunday roast and adds a good flavour however, sometimes it can be too watery of too thick.
Turkey – 8/10 without this, you cannot consider this dish to be a Christmas dinner. Turkey is the pinnacle of the dish being the base of the other items.
Swede and carrot mash – 8/10 a lot better than normal mash but is more elite.
Brussels sprouts – 7/10 they are average. Could be better, could be worse but I’m not complaining.
Broccoli and cauliflower – 7/10 similar to sprouts, they are average but are needed for a Christmas dinner to be complete.
Bread sauce – 6/10 it’s good but sometimes I am not a big fan if it is cold.
