Traditional Scottish Christmas Dinner ?

We Americans have many traditional Dishes that we have adapted to The Christmas day meal .while I do not speak for all...in general we do the Turkey, or Ham or sometimes both. Dressing ( or some call it Stuffing if you stuff your bird) Mashed Potato, gravy,veggies & cranberry etc.....what are some dishes that are favorites of some of you?

Would be fun to mix it up this year etc.
thanks
Kat

I alternate between roast goose and roast turkey. Served with roasted potatoes and parsnips, kilted chipolatas, Brussel sprouts with pancetta, honey glazed carrots, bread sauce, home-made stuffing, red-wine gravy, with cranberry sauce, if serving turkey, redcurrant sauce if serving goose.

Pudding: Christmas pudding and Tipsy Laird (although we normally leave that until much, much later in the day as we are so full from the first and main courses!)

Bread sauce is a white sauce (milk, simmered with a bayleaf and an onion, then add lots of breadcrumbs until they take up the sauce, beat until smooth).

I make 2 stuffings, sausagemeat with herbs and sage/onion.

Our big celebration is really on Hogmanay, when we bake, cook, clean and generally go mental to ensure everything is just right to welcome in the new year.

That's racist, I'm sorry. A sudden image appeared in my mind from the movie A Christmas Story.
