The full ingredients:1 x pack of wafer thin sliced turkey1 x pack of potato waffles1 x bag of mixed frozen veg1 x pack of stuffing mix1 x jar of own brand gravy granules1 x pack of cocktail sausages1 x pack of sliced hamTurkeyHaving a whole roast turkey is great if you’ve a) got an oven that will fit a huge bird in it, and b) you don’t mind shelling out the best part of £20 on a bit of meat. Luckily all you need for our alternative Christmas dinner is some wafer thin sliced turkey from the local supermarket - $3 should be more than enough for a pack that’ll feed four of you.PotatoesWe won’t lie, we love a roast potato - we said as much here. But at the end of the day a potato is a potato, no matter what form it comes from. This thinking led us to the conclusion that there was only one solution for our toaster and microwave only alternative Christmas dinner - the potato waffle!A few minutes in the toaster and you’ll have perfectly cooked waffles without any olive oil, goose fat or baking trays in sight. Plus it’s a scientific fact that any food is tastier if shaped like a waffle.VegetablesYou COULD buy a load of fresh veg, wash it, chop it, boil it, drain it. Or you COULD buy a huge bag of mixed frozen veg and put it in the microwave for four minutes. You decide.StuffingRoast turkey just isn’t the same without stuffing, and our alternative Christmas dinner is no exception. There was no mucking around with breadcrumbs or sausage meat in the studentbeans.com kitchen though - all you need is some stuffing mix, some boiling water and two minutes in the microwave (for more detailed instructions read the back of the box, innit).Pigs in blanketsThis is where the alternative Christmas dinner comes into its own. Without an oven or hob it’s tricky to cook sausages and bacon, but that wasn’t going to stop us enjoying our favourite part of Christmas day. The... imaginative (notice we didn’t say tasty) solution we came up with was wrapping precooked chipolata sausages with wafer thin ham - what? You’d never know the difference. Unless you’ve eaten real pigs in blankets before, in which case you definitely would.GravyWithout a good gravy your Christmas dinner would be dry and boring - but that doesn’t mean you need to make it from scratch, using the juices from the meat, wine, beer pre-made stocks and whatever else those fancy-pants chefs might throw in. Instead we decided to go with own brand gravy ganules - and in all honestly, it tasted a lot like gravy.
