Christmas Morning Breakfast? - Page 3

post #41 of 50
I make this
http://www.recipezaar.com/French-Toa...la-Deen-219922
(do not read calorie content...its only once a year right??)
and then a sausage cassorole...which is essentially
A loaf of french bread cut into bite size bits
a roll of sausage browned
about 6-8eggs
a cup or so of milk
and roughly 2cups chedder cheese
Mix all together in a 9by13 pan if you need more liquid (bread should be saturated with a little extra "goo" to soak in through the night) add another egg and some more milk.
cover and refriderate over night, pull out the next am and let "sit" and warm for about 45min andthen bake at 350 degrees until "cooked" through and crusty and golden on top...truly its heaven.

We host Christmas morning here with my mom and aunt. The plan for breakfast this year is pancakes (always a staple!), bacon and/or sausage (probably both since my mom and aunt only like bacon and me and the kids only like sausage, dh will eat anything), two fruit salads (one with cool whip for dh and one regular for the rest of us) and probably eggs. I'm also considering doing a breakfast casserole of some kind, but I'm not sure. Served with coffee and orange juice.

So I decided I'm going to make stuffed baked almond flour waffles. Waffles, creamcheese, berries... what's not to love!

We have our Christmas traditions/favorites and my grown kids keep adding to it! This year it is scrambled eggs, biscuits and gravy, yogurt with granola and berries, banana bread, pumpkin bread, monkey bread, sausage, mimosas, juice and hot chocolate. I have a feeling we will be eating all day! I'd like to pare it down and I love the idea of hot spiced fruit someone mentioned. Does anyone have a recipe for this?

Can someone break down how they make the cinnamon rolls homemade? yum! (for someone who doesn't normally make bread)

We typically have easy foods for the first meal of the day while opening presents. Lately it has been bagels with butter (some of us) or cream cheese (others).

Then, we fix a breakfast, brunch, or lunch - depends on the type of food we all want by then.

We always make an asparagus, ham casserole the night before then just pop it in the oven in the morning (I can give the recipe if anyone wants it). We also have fresh fruit. Every year I think about also making cinnamon rolls but haven't done it yet.

I would post the recipe I have, except it's packed right now. If I can find it before Christmas, I will post it, lol! It's one I got from MDC several years ago from another poster, can't remember her name. It is the BEST recipe I've ever had, and I've had lots. I don't know if a search of the N&GE forums would produce anything or not.

I make them all up the day before, pop the unbaked rolls in the fridge, and on Christmas morning, I pull them out in time to warm up and rise for breakfast. We like to open our gifts while we are waiting on the rolls. If the kids are super persuasive, I might make another batch on New Year's Eve for breakfast on New Year's Day. Otherwise, they have to wait until the next Christmas.
This is exactly what we do also. Our girls all get oranges in their stockings and we eat those with our breakfast also - that's the healthy part! I only make cinnamon buns on Christmas morning. We all love it and look forward to it all year.

We have cinnamon rolls every christmas morning! Not the healthiest, but it's one day a year.
Gardenmommy - we do exactly like you do - make them tne night before, put them in the fridge, then pull them out in the morning to rise and cook!
