Christmas dinner recipes


Recommended Posts

Last year I made the absolute best tasting (and terrible for you) stuffing. It's a Nigella recipe and I share it with you now in hopes that you'll make it this Christmas.

Your welcome foodies.


3 tbsp butter

1 tbsp vegetable oil

500g/1lb 2oz onions, finely chopped

2 eating apples peeled, cored and finely chopped

750g/1lb 8oz streaky bacon, finely chopped

2 clementines or 1 orange, zest only

450g/16oz loaf gingerbread (or 2 smaller ones to give you 450g)

2 free-range eggs, beaten

½ tsp freshly ground black pepper


1. Heat the butter and oil in a large wide saucepan. Add the onion and apple to the pan and cook until both ingredients have softened and turned golden in colour (about 10-15 minutes).

2. Add the bacon to the softened onion and apple mixture and mix well. Cook the mixture, stirring frequently, for about five minutes. Then add the clementine or orange zest and mix well.

3. Remove the pan from the heat and set a side to cool a little.

4. Roughly cut the gingerbread into clumps and crumbs and add the pieces to the stuffing and mix well.

5. Add the beaten eggs and pepper to the stuffing, and press the stuffing into a buttered baking dish. Bake the stuffing in a hot oven with your turkey for about the last 45 minutes.

6. To serve, let the cooked stuffing sit in its dish for a good ten minutes after it has been removed from the oven, before turning it out on to a clean serving plate and slicing it.

No recipe here but some advice: When folks are making stuffing' date=' for god's sake, don't add in any fucking raisins and/or nuts.[/quote']

Sage advice Jaimoe. Couldn't agree with you more.

The same goes for salad.

Agreed. The idea of nuts and raisins covered in gravy just isn't kosher, plus it's makes my stomach turn.
