'Lazy' dad slammed for serving Christmas lunch in foil trays to cut down on the dishes… but some say he's a genius

THE downside of having a delicious Christmas dinner is the amount of washing up you're left with afterwards.

But one dad has come up with a hack to make the process easier – although people are divided as to whether or not he's a genius or just plain lazy.

Instead of dirtying pots and pans, the man cooks everything in foil trays, which he then uses to serve the individual meals in.

Then, at the end of the meal, he throws all the trays away.

Pictures of the hack were shared online by the man's wife, who admitted that they first tried it in 2020, and liked it so much that they have decided to do it this year too.

However, the fact that the hack wasn't environmentally friendly led to comments from people online, one of whom wrote: "'This ends up in landfill I presume. It doesn't take long to wash a few plates – get the family involved.

"Get the family involved and use the pretty plates instead of this."

Another person added: "My thoughts exactly – if everyone did this it would be so bad for the environment. Takes two minutes to wash a few plates."

Following the backlash, the original poster responded by saying she and her family "recycle often".

Others were more complimentary, with one writing: "Might have to do this the way my toddler keeps smashing plates – she has plastic ones but gets hold of ours."

"I already use baking trays to cook everything, paper plated are too small and don't hold gravy well but this is epic," someone else commented.
