Roast Turkey and brussel sprouts, Prawn cocktails, pigs in blankets (sausages wrapped in bacon)

When I was growing up we had prawn cocktail for our starter and mum made the most amazing cocktail sauce.  

My favourite food to eat on Christmas day is turkey with apple sauce, roast potatoes, carrots, brussel sprouts, gravy and the pigs in blankets. 

My favourite dessert is chocolate yule log and then homemade gluten free mince pies.  

What do you like to eat at Christmas?  

I have put together here a few recipes that I love.  They are all gluten free.  Enjoy!
