I still haven’t decided what I am going to make for breakfast Christmas morning. In case you need some suggestions too, here are eight different ideas. Some are ultra easy, some can be made ahead, and some are special treats I would only make on a special day – mostly because I hate to fry.
Bacon and Egg Cups – put bacon in a muffin tin, pour in so me scrambled egg mixture and bake.
Gingerbread Pancakes – spice up a store-bought pancake mix (or make your own) then top with whipped cream and sprinkles.
Cream Cheese Danish – spread out some refrigerated crescent rolls, top with cream cheese mixture then another layer of crescent rolls and bake.
Baked Chocolate Donuts – As long as you have the donut pans, these are as simple as making the batter, baking for 8 minutes then setting out the toppings so each person can add what they want.
Lighter Cinnamon Rolls – you can either make and bake the night before or make them and let them do the final rise in the fridge overnight. In the morning, take them out while the oven is preheating then bake.
Monkey Bread – Cinnamon “balls” instead of rolls. Get it ready the night before and take it out while the oven is preheating.
Lighter Cream Cheese Pecan Coffee Cake – The cream cheese makes a rich tasting but lower in fat cake and the nuts and spices make it scrumptious.
Bethlehem Bread – Banana Bread on steroids! I think it is better the second or third day anyway. Just slice and toast it up in the morning and top with better or cream cheese.
Special Effort Required
Biscuit Donuts – The dough is just refrigerator biscuits, but to be really good they need to be fried up just before eating.
Rosettes – The batter is simple to make, but like the donuts they taste so much better when made fresh.
If Christmas morning goes the way it has for the last month in this house, though, it will be Honey Nut Cheerios – AGAIN! Oh well! we can always have cereal first then a yummy treat later.
Until next time, happy eating.
