Ten at Ten: Cracking Christmas Day Recipes


10 Christmas Day recipes

Each week, we invite a Foodies100 blogger to give us their ten favourite blog posts but this week, Foodies100 Editor Alison (that’s me! hello!) has picked some cracking Christmas recipes from our bank of bloggers. Are you ready to deck the halls and get festive?

  • Let’s start with a recipe that you can do in advance (always a winner in my book). Ren Behan’s Make-ahead leek and poppy seed sausage rolls look delicious and would be perfect to keep guests going while they wait for the main event.
  • A cake you can eat in one bite? Perfect for Christmas when you’re bound to have a glass of fizz in one hand. Emily from A Mummy Too has done these cute mini red velvet cupcakes. I could eat 12 of them.
  • Everyone loves a good stuffing and it’s a must on Christmas Day. Elizabeth’s Kitchen Diary has made some apricot and almond balls to go with a roast chicken but I think they’d go brilliantly with turkey too.
  • Great for a cheeky evening drink on Christmas Day (got to keep those alcohol levels topped up!) this spiced mulled cider from Helen at Fuss Free Flavours looks amazing.
  • If you’re after a non-alcoholic drink, Janice from Farmergirl Kitchen is a fan of cranberry fizz.
  • What do you give the kids when they say they’re hungry on Christmas morning? How about these poppyseed and gingerbread biscuits from Lori at Wild & Grizzly? I love the Santa shaped one, in particular.
  • Onto roasties! Becca from Amuse Your Bouche thinks she has the perfect roast potato recipe. Do you agree?
  • Fancy a little twist on your classic roast potatoes? Nomsies Kitchen has a great recipe for mustard roast potatoes. Actually, I could eat these as a snack on their own, never mind with my turkey on Christmas Day….
  • Sarah from Maison Cupcake has shared her Grandma’s bread sauce recipe – and she had a turkey dry run… how organised is that?
  • Looking for an easy dessert recipe for Christmas Day? This banoffee trifle over on Tinned Tomatoes will do the trick and you won’t be spending hours on it when you could be opening presents and dancing around the kitchen to Slade.

What are your favourite things to make for Christmas Day?

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at bloggers@fleaenterprises.com with any questions or comments.

Thank you!
