How to throw a festive buffet for £5 with Miguel Barclay

Christmas is all about celebrating - but food, wine and decorations all add up when you're hosting.

That's why we teamed up with Instagram sensation Miguel Barclay, AKA @onepoundmeals, to come up with a tempting Christmas party spread that won't cost you a bomb.

This menu serves four people for £5, but you can scale it up depending how many people you're inviting to your 'do. 

Salmon mousse

Rich and creamy, this salmon and cream cheese terrine is sure to be a hit - and it's easy to scale up, too!

Price per serving: 24p

Roast tomato bruschetta

Top toasted ciabatta with sweet, roasted tomatoes and onion for a veggie bite all your guests will love. The balsamic drizzle adds a touch of class that elevates this simple appetiser to party-worthy!

Price per serving: 40p

Sausage plait

Go large or go home with Miguel's sausage plait - a sized-up sausage roll that everyone will love. Ready-made puff pastry is a great cheat if time is short. Serve warm or cold with some chutney on the side.

Price per serving: 35p

Filo party pizza

A flaky, filo crust gives classic pizza a crunchy twist in this recipe. You can mix things up by adding different toppings - olives, sweetcorn, peppers, ham or cooked torn chicken all work well.

Price per serving: 25p
