Christmas Dinner Debates: Which Meat is Most Popular?

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas… Have you decided what meat will be gracing your table on Christmas Day (if you have a traditional Christmas dinner)?

Which meat is ‘Christmassy’ enough to be served on the 25th is often the topic of heated debate (yes, really…), with festive purists and traditionalists lambasting anything other than the quintessential turkey being dished up, whilst others are more relaxed and serve some gammon with their turkey.

Some even choose to forgo turkey altogether (me!) for many reasons; usually because they simply don’t like turkey! Out of pure curiosity, we asked the parents in our online community what meats (or non-meat alternatives) they’re serving up for their own Christmas dinner this year…

We hope that it helps you to decide!


Turkey

38.3%

Chicken

17.7%

Gammon

16%

Beef

11.4%

Lamb

9.7%

Nut Roast

3.4%

Pork

2.2%

Goose

0.5%

Quorn Family Roast

0.5%

So the jury is out – turkey is still above and beyond the most popular meat, but is also one of many choices – it’s fine to not want to serve turkey, it’s YOUR Christmas so choose what makes your family happy.
