I'm having friends round and cooking a roast on Sunday, my speciality is gammon but I'm doing chicken instead. My roasts usually involve:
Roast potatoes (obviously)
Roast parsnips
Suede and carrot mash
Red cabbage (the prepared stuff that you microwave blush )
Peas/Broccoli
Gravy

This is what I like, so it's what I cook, but MIL is very traditional and does:
Roast meat - offered with the official sauce mint/cranberry etc
Roast potatoes
Parsnips sometimes (is there a rule what meat you have them with?)
Stuffing sometimes (as above, is there a rule?)
Yorkshire puddings - only with Beef
Broccoli
Cauliflower
Peas
Gravy

What do you usually have with your roast?

Always wine, sometimes red sometimes white.. not relevant to the meat, just depends which I fancy.

My DS has been known to have 9

Are you are making the tiny ones then.

Get a big roasting dish and make a propper YP, the kind a 1/4 takes up the whole plate.

Something green, something roasted from below the ground, kids have potatoes sometimes boiled sometimes roasted. Often marinate the meat, often wine, sometimes gravy - always made with meat juices and not Bisto. We have no traditions with roast other than we rarely have it the same way. smile
