Eighteen per cent of respondents voted for the cold meat while pavlova came in a close second with 12 per cent.
Bon bons and pudding tied in third place while only eight per cent of voters said turkey was a must-have on Christmas Day.
Lamingtons and mince pies were the least popular options.
Ten people said potato bake and cherries were important additions to the table.
While a popular Aussie addition – prawns only received 16 votes followed by oysters, champagne and the ever-expensive cherries.

Trifle, family and laughter also made the Christmas lunch must-have list.
