Christmas Eve Feasts should be a relaxed affair; a handheld something or a one pot wonder. When the next day is filled with clanging saucepans and the oven works overload, give everyone a break and prepare something in advance that needs heating up and a bit of sprucing with the addition of a side salad. Here’s our top five ideas for the perfect Christmas Eve Feast:



Mary Berry’s Fish Pie With Crushed Potato Topping

Mary Berry cooks a fish pie every Christmas Eve, and here’s her coveted recipe. Who are we to argue with the genius of the Berry?


Persian Beef Casserole

Ahead of the turkey and ham overload, sometimes it’s nice to include some meat in the run up to Christmas. We love this Persian Beef Casserole.

Chicken and Chorizo Empanada Lilly Higgins

If a handheld supper is what you desire, then Lilly Higgins’ empanadas are just the job.

Bacon, Spinach & Blue Cheese Tart

If your family are arriving at different times on Christmas Eve and a sit-down dinner is impossible, then consider a tart. Great served warm, at room temperature or even cold, this one is a winner.
