How To Make Christmas Dinner In A Mug In A Microwave In Five Minutes

Christmas dinner can take hours to put together, with the designated cook often slaving away in the kitchen for most of the morning. But one chef claims there is a way to make a traditional festive lunch in just five minutes – by making it in a mug.

Theo Michaels’ bizarre recipe contains all the ingredients you would expect to find in a Christmas dinner: turkey, pancetta, stuffing, cranberry sauce, parsnips – and even Brussels sprouts.

But despite mixing them all together in a mug, the former Masterchef semi-finalist, from London, claims his mini steamed feast tastes just as good as a full-sized Christmas meal – and at 500 calories a mug, it’s less than half the calories of a traditional festive lunch.
