Prepare a homemade apple sauce and a Mediterranean salad (green leaves, red onion, tomatoes, olives and feta cheese). Roasted vegetables and good bottle of merlot red wine.
Mexican Hog Roast
It’s time to spice up your Christmas with this delicious Mexican inspired hog roast.
Start The Meal With Delicious Nachos
Don’t be shy with the cheddar cheese or jalapeños. Guacamole is a must and a dollop of sour cream will complete this starter.
Spicy Hog Roast
Whilst preparing your Mexican inspired hog roast, don’t be shy on the fresh chillies. The hotter the better! Serve with a three bean salad and a jug of frozen margaritas.
Keep It Traditional
A good old traditional hog roast to keep the inner Brit in you happy is always a good idea.
Soup To Keep The Hands Warm
Nothing beats a good soup to start the festivities, a creamy tomato soup with extra basil is a recommendation that has never failed us.
Slow and Steady
Slow roast your hog – don’t rush it. Serve with crispy roast potatoes. Don’t forget the salt and rosemary, broccoli and a good old fashioned cauliflower cheese. Serve with a wee glass of port and finish off the evening with a hot cup of cocoa.
