So, you’ve been stuck with the responsibility to cook on Christmas Day. How you feeling about that? Loathed? We don’t blame you. There are many, many ways that you can jump the gun though. Get things in place, well organised. Preparation is key!
You can make a tasty Christmas gravy long before the main event. Simply freeze it in a container, and defrost on the day. You can add the juices from your Christmas turkey to it before serving.
Stuffing freezes well – you can even freeze it in an oven dish, so once it’s defrosted, you can pop the dish straight into the oven. Some people go so far as to cook the stuffing before freezing, so on the day it only requires warming up: a good idea when oven space is at a premium.
