Boxing day

...and whether or not the goose is getting fat, we thought we'd add a special festive forum where you can post all your queries and comments about everything from mince pies to mulled wine and party food to parsnips.

plumber!!!

Boxing day

I am a 24 year old plumber and have been roped into cooking for the family on boxing day this year and have NO idea what to cook. Im thinking a gammon joint as one of my customers farms pork and beef.
Unfortunately I have no idea what to do with it as by boxing day everyone is sick of roast pots and spouts.

Any help would be appreciated

what about jacket pots and salads and pickles etc? Cold leftover turkey too...

that's our traditional boxing day lunch - lovely!

How many are you cooking for Plumber? Gammon and chips could be an answer (oven chips are easy)with either pineapple or eggs or as Expat says jacket spuds and coleslaw, pasta salad etc. My favourite boxing day is leftovers but maybe you aren't hosting Christmas day so won't have leftovers?

Boxing Day

After the big meal on Christmas Day, lots of people tend to do a buffet style boxing day. Definitely do a gammon/and or / a piece of pork. Lots of picky bits to go with them, all help yourself stuff. Pickled onions, picalilli, chutney, sausage rolls,finger food party type food. Salad, maybe a rice salad. A couple of decent cheeses, good bread. Delia has some great ideas - check this site out and also her Happy Christmas book.
I'd say keep it informal and let people help themselves and you can mingle and be the perfect host!
Good luck.

I'd go down the baked spuds and salad route myself, not forgetting mustard and pickles of course.

A Boxing Day spread with lots of choice is lovely, but no one will expect it and it could end up quite expensive. Assuming you have no vegetarians to worry about one main dish is absolutely fine, and you will have fewer left-overs.

Good luck!

Boxing Day

Always a buffet style meal here and very informal. Cold meats,salad, good selection of breads and pickles,chutney. Choc. roulade for pud looks impressive and a doddle to make !
