Christmas Eve dinner is all about the festive starters, impressive mains and indulgent puds that we only get to really enjoy on a special occasion. Christmas Eve dinner is the warm-up for Christmas day and we love a classic, like a beef Wellington to get us in the festive spirit. We've got lots of food ideas for your Christmas Eve dinner, from festive starters to warming puds. Our round-up of delicious and festive Christmas Eve recipes are sure to inspire.
If you're looking for something classic to make on Christmas Eve this year you've come to the right place. We've got lots of mouth-watering, festive recipes to choose from including a delicious salmon en croute that's got a lovely golden puff-patry outside and juicy salmon and creamy cheese centre. This is a fab recipe if you want to avoid meat for Christmas Eve dinner and opt for something a little lighter if you're expecting to have a meat feast on Christmas day.
