a) Bourbon - This gives an awesome kick of flavour. The alcohol will burn off, but feel free to leave out if you wish.
b) Make Ahead - These are perfect to make in advance! Just prepare up until roasting, cover and pop in the fridge, then continue as stated in recipe.
c) Cranberry Sauce - I often serve these with my Spiced Cranberry Sauce, but feel free to serve with any other dip or as part of your roast dinner.
