2. Make what you can early

Side dishes such as stuffing, red cabbage or cranberry sauce can all be made in advance then frozen and reheated quickly on the day.

Nest™ Glass

Our Nest™ Glass storage containers can be used to store food in the freezer but are also oven proof so there is no need to transfer between dishes once defrosted.
