Ideas for Christmas Day breakfast?!

Question: Ideas for Christmas Day breakfast!?
I'm having my parents over for breakfast on the 25th, it will be me, OH and 2 daughters!.

What would you have for brekkie, bearing in mind that most people will be eating a huge turkey or goose around 2pm!.!.!.!.!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

I always fancy a lovely continental breakfast - croissants, pain-au-chocolat etc!.!.!. or scotch pancakes or crumpets and golden syrup - that sort of thing for a change!. You can do a selection and people can pick what they want!. It's best washed down with orange juice, or even better, bucks fizz!. It's a real treat and not quite as filling as a fry up (I never fancy slaving over a hot stove on Christmas morning when I'll be doing it for the rest of the day!)!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

Homemade cinnamon rolls, always a favorite!. Be sure to make them medium size so as no has to obligate themselves to a huge breakfast!.

Use crushed walnuts and/or pecans, I don't have the exact recipe around, but they make a great breakfast for a group of people and if done correctly can make x-mas morning special

Good luckWww@FoodAQ@Com

My xmas mornings living at home used to be getting up around 4am getting my younger brother to come into my room and we would open our stockings, and then go downstairs after waking parents up around 6!.30/7am, and open presents, then Mom would make a fry up for breakfast and then we would have xmas lunch around the same time as you!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

this can be made the night before so all you have to do is cook in the morning:

Blueberry French Toast

12 slices day old white bread, crusts removed
2 packages (8 oz!. each) cream cheese

12 eggs

Cut bread into 1 inch cubes; place half in a greased 13 in!.x 9 in!.x 2 in!. baking dish!. Cut cream cheese into 1 in!. cubes; place over bread!. Top with blueberries and remaining bread!. In a large bowl, beat eggs!. Add milk and syrup; mix well!. Pour over bread mixture!. Cover and chill 8 hours or overnight!. Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before baking!. Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes!. Uncover; bake 25-30 minutes more or until golden brown and the center is set!. In a saucepan, combine sugar and cornstarch; add water!. Bring to a boil over medium heat; boil for 3 minutes, stirring constantly!. Stir in blueberries; reduce heat!. Simmer for 8-10 minutes or until berries have burst!. Stir in butter until melted!.

I suggest you do a strata or a breakfast casserole bake!. And just have a few pieces of sliced fruit on the plate like pineapple, melon or grapes!.

Im making this but excluding the ham!.
Spinach and Cheese Strata w/ mimosa's



Buffet style!.
Just grill a load of bacon and fresh tomatos and make a huge pile of buttys, let everyone help themselves, make a big pot of hot tea,, and buy some fruit salad, yogurts and crossiants in case someone wants something lighter!.
serve bucks fizz, that should keep them all quiet till lunch!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

This is a wonderful, very LIGHT pancake, that puffs up around the edges!. I serve it in wedges with one of the following on top: lemon juice & powdered sugar !.!.!. fresh sliced strawberries!.!.!. or a can of heated pie apples!.!.!.!.

1/4 c!. butter
3 eggs
1 c!. milk
1/4 c!. sugar
1 c!. flour, unsifted
1/4 tsp!. salt
!.!.!.Melt butter in 9x13" pan!. Mix rest of ingredients together and pour into pan!. Bake at 375 for 20 min!.!.!.!.!.!. It will puff up, then gently fall in the center!.

Serve with fresh fruit!. Believe me, you WON'T be disappointed in this! It's the perfect light, yet slightly elegant (and EASY) breakfast!.!.!.!.!.!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

You should go light, no heavy egg dishes or the like!.

Cranberry muffins, english muffins, fruit salad, jam, maybe a pot of oatmeal to warm them up and for drinks Orange juice,coffee,tea
