Used to be Red Velvet Cake or sometimes Swedish tea ring.
Will probably be Swedish tea ring this year if dh gets around to making it.
If not, I'll be watching this thread for ideas.
Here is one we made with veggies and sausage. It's nice because I always prepare it the night before. Then on Christmas morning all you have to do is pop it into the oven.
The best thing about this casserole is that I make it the night before and pop it in the oven in the morning. It bakes and makes the house smell fantastic while we drink coffee and open prezzies.
There are a lot of online recipes for Christmas Breakfast (or Brunch) casserole but mine is generally shredded potatoes (and zuccini and carrots, if I have them on hand), tons of cheese and eggs and milk. Like a crustless quiche. Meat eaters love a little ham or sausage or bacon in there as well.
Now that we do xmas at home we're not sure what we'll be eating. Last year we picked at crackers dips and things.
This year it depends. If In-laws are going to the fams xmas eve or staying in town until xmas day(they live next door so if they are here xmas morning is done together.
goats milk cheese
Then in-laws will bring kabosa(sp) or some kind of meat for them
|I make something super yummy and (not at all) healthy, cinnamon rolls. They are ooey, gooey, soft, sweet, sticky, and SO GOOD! Not at all good for you, but again, I make them once or twice a year, so who really cares. 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.|

I really want to start a family tradition. I am thinking some kind of breakfast casserole, I have a recipe for an Eggs Benedict casserole that looks (to me) really yummy. Don't know if my family would like it, though. And also a baked good, cinnamon rolls or monkey bread maybe...?
Maybe crescent rolls?
We eat a lot of oranges, baked goods and sweets on Christmas day.

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.
I made bagels last year, and I plan on making it a tradition. In the early afternoon we go over to my parents, and last year I brought a box of bagels with me too, they were a hit! They are a little time consuming, but easy to make. Well worth the effort!!
ETA: This site explains it better, in the section labeled "Scandanavia"
eggs and butter
crushed unsweetened pinneapple
I like sweet/savory combos...hhmmmmm.....maybe i'll add some currants?
Warm home made cinnamon rolls (with home made dough and all. the kids like the nut-free one, us adults like the gooey nut topping) mmmmm
Happily married to DH for 6 years, in process to foster-adopt 3 children DD4, DS3 and DS2. We may be bringing half brother age 9 one day as well! We are not infertile, we just have decided that since there are precious children who need homes there is no need for us to have biological children.
Ours isn't healthy, either, but again, I only make it once a year. I make shrimp and grits and it is fabulous.
We've been having the same Xmas breakfast my entire life, and I'm not about to change it now, even though we don't even celebrate... Steak and eggs, biscuits and gravy. Even when times were tough and money was tight we still always had this breakfast.
