    I usually have the same as everyone else minus the turkey (Sprouts, carrots, roast potatoes, yorkshire pudding, stuffing, apple sauce, gravy etc etc) and then Strawberry cheesecake or whatever, then some sort of buffet for tea. Eating this amount of food usually results with the entire family lying comotose in the living room for the rest of December.

    I have Quorn Roast usually, occasionally a nut roast but im not really a major fan of it anyways.
    Also Linda McCartney sausages and good old packet stuffing, which is my FAVOURITE part of the hole meal!
    Also just have roast spuds, tones of veggies and gravy.
    Out of he 6 people in my family 5 are veggies only my poor dad has turkey! But if we have people over at least he can share with them!!

    I might have veggie haggis, or something based on bell peppers. Not decided yet.

    packet stuffing is actually pretty yummy. I'm indifferent to whether I have packet or from scratch and seeing as i'm the one making it i'll go for packet. anything to make christmas day less hectic tbh.

    the flavour of the stuffing doesn't come from the meat juices unless you cook it with the meat...and i've never liked the taste/texture of it when it's cooked with the meat anyway.
    you ******* disgust me - i refuse to talk to you.

    packet stuff tastes like *****. real stuffing is stunning - end of

    I'm not sure yet though we usually have a quorn or nut roast since my parents are both veggie too. My nan either joins us or my mum buys some turkey for her. We have it with the usual mash, roasts, yorkshire puddings, veg (everyone else has stuffing (packet) but I don't like it) then we usually have something like toffee pecan roulade for dessert. My nan might not be coming this year though, so we may do something slightly different.

    by just omitting the eggs would be a bit dry i think.. try adding a tablespoon of vegetable oil for each egg, or even better.. get hold of some 'egg replacer' it works wonders!

    Yeah it migth end up crumbling away all over the place haha... I might try the ground flax seed route as I've never tried that out before! I normally just don't use egg replacer in things... thanks though

    Quorn and other 'trying to be meat' meat products make me want to sick up. They are so gross

    Not sure what I'm having though. Maybe a vegetable pie.

    I'm not a proper vegetarian anymore - I have fish a couple of times a mont, turkey on Christmas, and raan masaledar on my birthday.
    But when I was, I just had piles of sage and onion stuffing instead, and then the normal veg.

    Paxo all the way!

    I am normally a 'from scratch' person - I like to make my own bread, I hate prepared veg, I wont buy shop-bought fairy cakes etc etc...but there is one thing I will never make from scratch, and that's stuffing! What on earth is the point?! It would never even occur to me to make my own stuffing!

    Sage and onion's awesome, but Paxo also do a fantabulous cranberry one...yum yum yum!
    Home made stuffing is great! You get to use up old bread, smell the onions frying off, and I used to get sent out to the garden to pick the sage for my grandmother, I love it.
