Traditionally in the UK, a simple Sunday lunch recipe consists of a roasted meat (chicken, beef, lamb, or pork) alongside a variety of vegetables and roasted potatoes. Favourably topped with gravy and an array of sauces and condiments and if you’re lucky you might get a Yorkshire pudding.

This is usually followed by a sweet dessert such as bread & butter pudding, sticky toffee pudding, jam roley poley or perhaps a seasonal crumble (apple, rhubarb, berry), often served with cream or custard.

Typically bought to the table anytime between 12-4pm, the traditional Sunday lunch is a favourite across the nation.
