Sometimes the usual Christmas fare gets a little boring and you have a hankering for something more unusual, a little different, somewhat more seasonal. And what could be more seasonal than reindeer? If you’ve ever wondered how to cook Rudolph then let me inspire you.
Here are 8 ways to cook Rudolph (or any other reindeer)
Roast Reindeer would work amazingly well in place of the traditional Christmas main course meat. About an hour and a half to prepare – so not that different from the usual timings for Christmas dinner – and with the usual trimmings could taste divine. It is, of course, a little more expensive for a Reindeer Haunch than a Turkey but it is Christmas! You can get your Reindeer haunch from Kezie
These Reindeer Sausage Sandwiches look delicious 🙂 You could either make your own or buy them ready made from Alaska Sausage and Seafood
Or how about Bacon Wrapped Meatloaf with Reindeer and Red currents? A great recipe for those following a paleo diet or to use up those left over reindeer bits on Boxing day. You can find the recipe here.
For those who like it spicy why not try a Reindeer Chili – a dish that can be made in advance and allowed to sit for a few days. Or you could freeze it to eat at a later date in one person portions – after all a whole reindeer in one go is a bit of a stretch.
And if you’re trying to get someone to try something new why not a Reindeer Pizza? I think I’d skip the mushrooms myself but for the full recipe follow this link
Or perhaps something for those nights when you sit wrapped in blankets by a fire pit, looking up at the stars, and just want something quick and warming to eat. Reindeer Hot Dogs would be ideal – and you could cook them on the fire pit! You can find more interesting recipes on pororeseptit.fi
If you try any of these recipes let me know what they were like. And if you have any of your own recipes to cook Rudolph why not share them, I’d love to try them 🙂
