In my family, breakfast on Christmas morning gets almost as much attention as Thanksgiving dinner. When my granny was still around, we would go to her house for breakfast casseroles and bacon and French toast made with her homemade bread. These days, we have several rounds of breakfast – a snack of homemade cinnamon rolls for the early risers, followed in late morning by some skillet sensation involving leftover Christmas Eve ham and maple syrup, accompanied by a frittata or strata or some egg dish, along with hashbrowns and maybe blueberry pancakes or chocolate chip waffles. After all, it’s Christmas, a time for family – and food.
Every year, we usually try out at least one new recipe. Last year, it was Loveless Cafe’s blueberry muffins. I haven’t decided which recipe to try this weekend, but here’s a huge recipe roundup featuring a dozen or so potential breakfast recipes for Christmas morning. You can tell by the list that I’m more of a savory breakfast fan, but the balance between savory and sweet is very important when it comes to breakfast. Or should I say brunch?
