Turkey, pigs in blankets, stuffing, peas, carrots, Brussels sprouts, parsnips and of course, roast potatoes and gravy: these all form the key components of the nation’s Christmas dinner this season, each netting more than 50% in a poll on what the British public expects to grace its dinner plates come December 25th.

Other so-called ‘favourites’ didn’t fare so well...

  • Cranberry sauce only netted 47%
  • Christmas cake just 45%
  • Yule log just 19%
  • Bread sauce had 18%
  • Mulled wine only received 15%
  • And eggnog was the least popular offering on the seasonal spread with just 3% of the vote.
