Christmas Meal planning shopping list
All the trimmings: We’re not sure you’d be forgiven if you didn’t serve pigs in blankets with your Christmas roast. We follow a traditional recipe using Lincolnshire sausage meat wrapped in dry-cured streaky bacon.
And if you want to produce the ultimate in crispy, yet fluffy roast potatoes, add a jar of Dalziel goose fat to your shopping basket. As for condiments, Mrs Darlington’s cranberry sauce is the perfect accompaniment, as well as adding a sweet tang to your Boxing Day buffet spread or dolloped on a cold turkey sandwich.
Will you serve Lincolnshire Ribeye of beef or a joint of gammon bejewelled with glistening honey and cloves? Or maybe you like to break with tradition and dine on roast leg of grass-fed lamb or a comforting dish of pork belly?
Whichever cut you choose, be assured we will deliver on the following – quality, sustainably farmed, ethically produced meat.
Pork pies made to our unique recipe, ready-to-bake sausage rolls using our Lincolnshire sausage meat, quiches, Lincolnshire cheeses, pickles, handmade Scotch eggs, speciality cooked meats like haslet and our uniquely ‘Yellowbelly’ delicacy of stuffed chine – we can help you lay on the perfect spread for your guests.
Ready, set, plan!
The countdown to Christmas can leave even the most enthusiastic fans of the festive season feeling a little frazzled.
Here, our ambassador chef Rosie Dicker gives her top tips for getting ahead of the game so you can relax and enjoy the Big ‘Feastival’ that is Christmas.
Make a hearty gravy* using the meat juices of a Sunday roast in the run-up to the festivities and pop it in the freezer in readiness for Christmas Day Dinner.
Draw up a Christmas Day meal planner while your head is clear, so you know the cooking times of everything. Calculate how long it will take to cook your Lakings turkey or joint from the time you wish to dine and work back from there for all the trimmings and side dishes.
Place your order for your Christmas produce early and let Lakings deliver to your door.
Search ‘Christmas’ on our website. We offer a range of boneless turkey joints, roasting joints of beef, pork and gammon, as well as a delicious range of cooked meats, cheeses, pies, sausage rolls, stuffing, pigs in blankets and more.
We love Rosie’s gravy but if you run out of time, you can always cheat and buy a reheatable pouch of Atkins & Potts Turkey Gravy.
