It wouldn't be a traditional Christmas dinner without roasties - these herby roast potatoes are tossed with rosemary, sage and thyme and are perfectly crispy on the outside, fluffy in the middle.

For a simple shortcut, pick up a packet of pigs in blankets and roast until the bacon is crisp. Finally, for bread sauce simmer breadcrumbs in milk until thickened - infuse with ingredients from the storecupboard such as peppercorns, bay leaves, cloves or a halved onion for extra flavour.
