It comes as no surprise that Turkey remains the nation’s favourite Christmas meat; according to YouGov, roast beef is a close second popular choice of meat in the UK. The sides stand out as the nation’s favourite part of the meal overall, with roast potatoes and pigs in blankets reigning at the top of the board as the nation’s favourite Christmas foods overall.

With a variety of other delicious alternatives, if you want to stray away from the traditional options, we’ve put together a list of the best Christmas meats you can serve with your festive feast.

1. Goose

Traditional and classic, the goose has slipped in popularity over the years compared to the turkey.

More expensive and considered a luxury, the rich and juicy meat with golden and crispy skin, is a perfect alternative. Although there is less meat on the bone, they’re perfect for smaller families and gatherings.

Served alongside flavoursome root vegetables and crispy roast potatoes, the goose could become an annual favourite. Order our goose online here.

2. Duck

If you’re looking to be more experimental this holiday season, the duck may be the option for you. Its unique taste and hearty, tender texture bring some sophistication to the table.

Its versatile rich flavour allows you to try a range of seasonings and spices to bring a variety of tastes to your plate. Ideal with roasted vegetables and a rich, fragrant gravy, this is sure to make an impression. You can order our duck online now.
