Tips for the perfect turkey dinner

  • Turkey is a Free Food (just as long as you remember to take the skin off after cooking), so you can enjoy as much as you like.
  • Roasting your potatoes and veggies in low-calorie cooking spray is a great way to transform a traditional Christmas dinner into something slimming-friendly and just as tasty! You can put all your veggies into one tray (with a sprinkling of rosemary and garlic for an extra boost of flavour), saving you washing-up and some much-needed oven space.
  • Top it all off with our deliciously rich roasted onion gravy.


Christmas past: Christmas pudding with brandy butter

Christmas present: Baileys cheesecake
