I was always under the impression that roast dinners were too far out of my comfort zone and that they were extremely difficult to make. (Fun fact: I didn’t make my first roast dinner until I was 32!). Nowadays, I absolutely love cooking up a roast dinner and there is something so satisfying about eating a delicious roast meal after waiting for it to cook to perfection. Whether you appreciate a good roast chicken or prefer silverside, I have collated a few roast dinner ideas including sides for you in this post. I recommend making a little extra and having it for lunch the next day! Let me know what you favourite roast dinner dish is in the comments.
