my favourite Christmas ‘bring a plate’ recipes

I am in the middle of my craziest 2 weeks at the moment with christmas concerts, presentation nights, rehearsals, christmas parties, a thank you afternoon tea and regular family life. And so many ‘bring a plate’ events – well 3 – but that’s more than usual so let’s call it ‘so many’. So here are a few of my favourite Christmas bring a plate ideas that are super yummy and that you will love. And if they all look like too much hard work what about a plate of fairy bread made out to look like a Christmas tree like this gem I found on pinterest.

  1. Thank you, Corrie for the always helpful, yummy recipes you provide!
    The sweet potato frittata in particular. Going to make this for my grandsons soon :)
    Your website is always interesting.

    • do you know I’ve made that for so many years and people still ask me for the recipe – well except for my lovely husband who has probably had it too many times over those years:) :)
