If you can roast a chicken, then you can also roast a lamb. Just rub your meat with a mixture of aromatic herbs, fresh garlic and the best olive oil. Throw this pampered lamb in the oven for an hour. I would recommend you roast your lamb on a bed of potatoes.

We love a not-so-messy dish and cornbread is the perfect pick when it comes to such a dish. You should also serve it on Christmas eve to offer your guests a crispy crust with moist corn cake inside.

If you do not want to go with roasting a whole turkey, then may I suggest a roulade? Equally flavourful, preparing a roulade is super easy that shall still manage to burst a bomb of flavours in your mouth. Also, it is easier to carve, if you would like to do it as they do it.

Pork is my favourite which becomes even better when I can cook it effortlessly. One such recipe is smothered pork chops. It does not require you to turn on your oven and all you have to do is let it simmer in flavourful sauce on low heat. The pork becomes tender with time and the hints of the sauce penetrate it.

12. Bacon Brie Crescent Wreath

Just like a wreath that I suggested at the beginning of this article, you can create a wreath with a bacon brie crescent. However, if you wish to make a vegetarian wreath this time, then may I suggest you use mushrooms instead of bacon?

13. Turkey Meatloaf

Meatloaf is always amazing but Christmas demands turkey so why not prepare a meatloaf but with turkey. You can load your turkey meatloaf with Worcestershire garlic, thyme, rosemary and other preferred herbs and aromatic spices.

14. Vegetarian Mushroom Gravy

If you are looking for something vegetarian and yet as yummy as a non vegetarian option, then go for mushroom gravy. There are multiple ways you can prepare it but I like a flavour packed gravy that has creamy texture. It goes perfectly on the side.
