If you’re lucky enough to be camping on Christmas day, we know one thing is true-you really don’t want to be fussing around a hot stove or fire at lunch time! So we present to you, the easiest, quickest, and most delicious menu for a fuss-free Campsite Christmas. Some of these ideas are so simple that no recipe is required. There are also a few little shortcuts here, but hey….it’s totally worth it if it means you get to spend more time chilling out with your family and friends.
This menu is perfectly suited to the Complete Campsite Kitchen with Weber Baby Q as an option.
Merry Christmas and enjoy!
Tropical Moscato Sangria: Muddle together 1 can of passionfruit pulp, 1/2 bunch of mint, some peach slices, and two bottles of white sparking sangria into a jug. Add loads of ice if you’ve got it. If you wanted to be extra naughty, you could add a big splash of Cointreau!
Oysters are amazing on their own. Just add a splash of lime juice to enhance their briney flavour.
Prawns with Dipping Sauce: Mix together some good mayonnaise, some smoked paprika, cayenne pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice. Serve with your favourite Australian prawns.
Christmas Ham: This goes without saying-Christmas ain’t christmas without a leg of ham! Just serve cold.
Perfect Weber Roast Chicken: Rub your choice of spice mix, salt, pepper and oil over the skin of a 1.8kg chicken. Stuff some lemons inside the chicken cavity, place onto a trivet and cook in the Weber (set to indirect cooking) for approximately 1 hour.
Roast Pumpkin and Macadamia Salad: While the chicken is roasting, add some sliced pumpkin to the tray. When roasted and cooled, mix with some toasted macadamias, baby spinach, sliced spanish onion, and dress with a mix of honey and soy sauce. Photo credit: CookMeEatMe
Berry Pavlova: Mix together thickened cream, softened mascarpone cheese and a little icing sugar. Place mixture on top of a pre-bought quality pavlova nest, and then top with fresh berries. Photo credit: Taste
