What foods can I buy in advance and freeze?

I don't normally cook Christmas lunch so I'm a bit new to it all. It will just be me, DP and my mum.

Turkey is ordered so that's fine, but I'm dreading the competitive dash around the supermarket a few days before. What can I get in advance to save the hassle? Sausages wrapped in bacon surely will be fine, what else?

I'm just doing a traditional turkey dinner, with smoked salmon and pate for starter, and mince pies for dessert. I could make the mince pies in advance and freeze them too I guess?

Presumably smoked salmon won't freeze. What about pate? Any tips to make the run up a bit easier would be very gratefully received!

Your xmas dinner...
If you boil the potatoes and let them cool down then freeze them then all you have to do is roast them on the day.
Same with carrots and other veg, chop and put in freezer containers.
Stuffing can be frozen then put straight in the oven

Get all the stuff in foil trays from the supermarket or m and s. Chuck it in the oven. Dinner done wine

I watched Jamie Olivers cooking for Christmas the morning and I am going to make his get ahead gravy. It looked beautiful and really easy. Freezer friendly.

I don't go for the mad shop either but you could get your tin foil, frozen sides etc now. Lidl have lovely brocolli gratins in their deluxe range and I am going to stock up on them. Really tasty.
