Christmas main courses that aren't turkey
Turkey isn’t the only star of the Christmas table. If you’re looking for something different for your festive main, we’ve got you covered.
These Christmas main courses include alternative roasts like goose, budget-friendly Christmas chicken and classic roast beef. Slow-roast lamb and pork with golden crackling also make impressive Christmas mains. There’s festive favourites like beef wellington and salmon en croute, plus some vegetarian and vegan options. Merry Christmas!
Our Glow Up mini recipes, including a luscious sage and nutmeg garlic butter to rub under the turkey’s skin or toss with veg, are a great way to jazz up your festive feasting too.
