Best-ever Christmas roasts

Not that there's anything wrong with it, but it doesn't have to be all about ham and turkey come Christmas Day. This year, change it up with one of these succulent roasts.

We love Christmas ham and glossy roasted turkey as much as the next person, but sometimes you feel like branching out with your Christmas menu. These roasted meats are ideal Christmas recipes, from festive goose to luscious pork belly to an old-fashioned roast chicken. Whatever you choose as the centrepiece of your Christmas feast, all of the recipes we've selected here are designed for maximum impact. And if you really can't do without a glazed ham on Christmas Day (and let's be honest, the week of leftovers afterward), we've snuck a few ham recipes in there too.
