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
Walkers Crisps – flavours: cheese and onion, smokey bacon, roast chicken and prawn
Pork Pie: Cold pastry filled with seasoned, minced pork
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!
