Christmas is called the most wonderful time of the year for a reason. It’s a time for family, friends, food and fun – what’s not to love? At St Pierre our products have been created to be enjoyed and savoured throughout the whole year, but there’s something truly magical about the festive season and making meals special.
Whether you’ve got a calendar packed with Christmas parties, are shepherding the kids to nativity plays, or are simply rounding up the year – it’s a busy time. We know that, and understand that you still need to make sure that your family’s meals and treats are just as delicious as ever.
That’s why our range of French-inspired products, available in supermarkets across the UK, have been created to provide a bit of Parisian flair to any meal. Let us help make your Christmas fantastique.
Christmas the St Pierre way
From carol concerts to office parties, nativity plays to shopping trips, there’s always a lot going on at Christmas. Food is at the heart of the festive season, of course, and at St Pierre we believe there’s always room for a treat or a bit of decadence at every meal.
Whether you swap your normal bread for the richness of our Brioche Loaf, add a pack of Chocolate-Filled Crêpes to your trolley, or pick up some Brioche Burger Buns for an easy tea, let us help make your Christmas magnifique.
Our products are created to be a simple yet elegant addition to any meal or snack, so that you can easily make the Christmas season a little more magnifique.
We’ve created a selection of versatile and adaptable recipes to help use our products for when you need a little inspiration – perhaps you’ve used up all your creativity on Secret Santa shopping? Christmas is time for treats for everyone: it might be Chocolate Chip Brioche Rolls for the kids, or our Vanilla Brioche Tear & Share for a no-stress breakfast or dessert this December.
What to make for Christmas events
Christmas food ideas are always about comfort, flavour and pulling out all the stops. We’ve put our heads together at St Pierre HQ to come up with some of the best Christmas food ideas for this year’s celebrations – take a look below.
Dinners, parties and more…
What to make for Christmas breakfast
Christmas breakfast recipes are easy to find, but finding one that’s really special and pleases the whole family, without spending hours in the kitchen preparing and cooking, can be tricky.
For a real showstopper, try our Christmas Savoury Croissant Bake, packed with flaky pastry and rich flavours. Or, for a quick and simple Christmas Day breakfast while you’re opening presents around the tree, why not throw together some Scrambled Egg and Smoked Salmon Croissants?
What to make with Christmas Dinner leftovers
The standard Christmas leftover sandwich is a classic, but sometimes it’s nice to mix things up a bit and really go all out for the festive season.
If you’ve got Christmas ham leftovers, try our delicious Leftover Ham and Creamed Leek Brioche Burgers. The festive ham, the creamy leeks, the richness of the brioche – it will be your new favourite Christmas leftovers dish. Or, from the main event, create Leftover Turkey and Stuffing Burgers, pairing the leftover meat with our golden Brioche Burger Buns.
Christmas drink ideas
As well as the classic egg nog and mulled wine, it’s always nice to have something sweet and warming on cold December evenings. At St Pierre we believe in treating ourselves, so have whipped up some festive drink recipes as magical as the season.
Combining classic festive flavours, our Cinnamon and Orange Liqueur Hot Chocolate recipe for Christmas is a sure winner, served with one of our decadent Brioche Waffles on the side for dunking! For something a little different – and a true family favourite – try our Christmas Caramel and Millionaires Waffle Freakshake… the perfect combo of smooth and crunchy.
Frequently Asked Questions
What do the French eat at Christmas?
In France, Christmas dinner is quite similar to what we eat in the UK. The main dish is often a golden roast turkey, though sometimes another poultry or game meat might be substituted. In typical French style, other dishes are classically rich and decadent – think foie gras, roasted chestnuts, lobster, caviar, cheese and truffles. Seafood – salmon, lobster, oysters – are also popular dishes during the festive season.
What to eat on Christmas Eve?
If you’re planning a big special Christmas Day feast, you might want to take it a little easier on Christmas Eve. Of course, you’ll still want it to be special, so you’ll need a few special touches. A pack of St Pierre Brioche Baguettes paired with some roasted meat or other tasty fillings can be a rich and tasty Christmas Eve dinner with minimal effort for maximum reward.
Throw some Christmas crackers on the table, add some seasonal flavours and whatever you make will be a true festive feast!
What food to bring to a Christmas party?
Ask the host of the party what they’d like you to bring as a first port of call – that way you save ending up with five plates of the same dish. If there’s no request, some easy dishes to bring include dessert (brioche bread and butter pudding is a great option for a crowd pleaser), side dishes (roast potatoes, mashed potatoes, roasted carrots), or an alternate main dish like a small roast or casserole.
