We will be having 5 children and 7 adults for Christmas tea (same people will be having lunch together at SIL's). I was going to host it as the dessert following lunch but my niece has asked for egg buns and hubby wants savoury bits. I've got a Tesco online slot booked for Wednesday - please hit me with your ideas!

Savoury bits that go down well in our house Christmas are...

Chicken satay, bite size quiche, scotch eggs, cocktail sausages, cold meats, crusty bread's with olive oil, sausage rolls, kettle crisps, oven baked new potatoes (cut up small and seasoned), mini pies.

Sausage rolls and quiche - I wasn't allowed either as a child so still see it as indulgent party food!

Or you could extend the dessert idea and make it a 'naice' cheeseboard/pate/cold meats alongside the desserts and folk can make their own combinations up according to how they feel.

Cheese board with huge selection of cheese, including a couple that you don't usually buy. And grapes.

Brie & grapes together are fab, on there own , on a cracker or on bread

a baked brie or camebert

Ours will be a roasted pepper and tomato soup with nice bread and a cheese board with crackers, grapes etc - also turkey sarnies, if there is any left (bought a crown this yr). Pudding will be leftover from lunch - i am making 3!!!
