A Boxing Day Feast

Boxing Day

In the Jones household, Boxing Day is always celebrated with a traditional English feast. The feast is a collection of cold foods and typically wrapped in pastry or stuffed with sausage.

The staples include:

A cheese plate – cheese ball, goat cheese, stilton, brie, and old cheddar

Sausage rolls

Devilled  eggs

Walkers Crisps – flavours: cheese and onion, smokey bacon, roast chicken and prawn

Homemade Scotch Eggs: Hard-boiled eggs, encased in sausage, breaded and deep-fried.

Essential condiments and garnishes:

  • Colman’s Hot English Mustard
  • Homemade pickled onions
  • Sweet gherkins
  • Pickled beets
  • Green and black olives

And for those of us who do not like pastry wrapped sausage, there is always an abundance of buns and left-over turkey for sandwiches.

I hope you are all feeling full and satisfied from your holiday meals. Let the salad eating and juice cleanses begin…at least until New years!
