Eggs Molinaro (named after a friend of mine!)
cream or half and half
fresh basil, finely chopped
Preheat oven to 325
Get out your regular size muffin pan - no minis for this
Line each cup with a slice of prosciutto
Crack one egg into each cup
add a 1/2t or so of cream
sprinkle with fresh basil
grate fresh Parmesan on top of each egg
Pop them in the oven for about 12-15min.
It's great because you can serve a bunch of people at once. I like to put to have either toasted English muffins or croissants and fruit and yoghurt with them. My son is 28mos and he loves them!

Maple Nut Biscuit Ring
I nearly forgot about this one! It is sort of like a monkey bread. SOOOOO yummy, and I bet you could do much of the prep the night before. Or even cook it the night before and then heat it in the AM.
Maple Nut Biscuit Ring
1/2 cup butter or margarine
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
2 (10 oz) cans refrigerated flaky biscuits
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup maple flavored syrup
Heat oven to 350. Lightly grease 12 cup fluted tube pan.
In med saucepan, melt butter; stir in brown sugar, nuts, syrup.
Pour ¼ cup sugar mix into prepared pan.
Separate biscuit dough into 20 biscuits. Stand biscuits on edge, slightly overlapping, around the pan.
Pour remaining sugar mixture over biscuits.
Bake at 350 for 25-35 min or until golden brown. note: if you have a pan that may “leak,” make sure you put a baking sheet lined in foil on the rack underneath!
Cool 3 min; invert onto serving plate.

honestly back when I and was a kid and my siblings, we didnt care about breakfast. PRESENTS!!! So my mom did cinnamon rolls Christmas morning and I do that know with my kids cause again they only care about the presents adn getting their parents sleepybutts out of bed.
We always had ham slices with pineapple, scrambled eggs, toast, English muffins, boiled tomatoes (from the tin, just open tin and warm in pan), and some other little things, like fresh fruit, cereal, o.j., coffee and cranberry juice. We always had a lot of people there though!
You could make a nice breakfast quiche, eggs, ham, leeks or onions or whatever veg you like, cheese... and frozen store bought pie shells! Very easy to find recipes to your taste online.
Or try making french toast/waffles, serve with stewed fruit (take frozen berries, add to pot and add 2 tbsp water, warm over medium heat till mushy). Or strawberry/blueberry pancakes with whipped cream!

My husband has some Mexican heritage. He grew up (and we have tried to continue the tradition) having tamales and eggs Christmas morning. We spend the whole day on the day after Thanksgiving making them and we freeze them for Christmas. It makes for a fun tradition to do with whole family for Thanksgiving and then carries over to Christmas morning and they are delicious.

Our traditional Christmas morning breakfast is something simple since we have a big dinner later in the day. I take a box of Pillsbury hot roll mix (you can use the frozen bread but takes a long time to thaw and rise) prepare and let stand for 30 minutes. While your waiting the 30 min. Cook a pound of whatever flavor you like of sausage (I use the vege crumble sausage now and noone knows the diff. better for you too) shredd some pepper jack cheese. Flatten the dough to a rectangle and put your sausage down the middle top with the cheese. Fold one side over mixture, then fold other side over tucking in the ends. Brush with beaten egg whites and pop in the oven for the time noted on box. My children love this and you can mix up the inside ingredients to whatever you like. Ham and cheddar cheese is good too.

I love hash brown casserole...but I could not find a recipe I liked really well...so I stole a couple of ideas and came up with a recipe myself...it turned out so good, my family talks about it all year long, waiting for me to make it again...lol. So, it has become our tradition, since we started having our family Christmas dinner the following weekend after Christmas; for me, my hubby and kids, I make a Christmas day brunch/breakfast thing...and the hashbrown casserole is the center of the meal...it doesn't matter what else I make, as long as I make that...oh, by the way, my family has tried to talk me into making this casserole other times in the year...I've decided it will be a tradition, and only make it on Christmas day...yummmy...sounding really good right now too...lol.

something simple that is easy to whip up and is not to filling as the emphasis on the day is the christmas dinner, so we normally have scrambled egg with smoked salmon and a couple of smoked bacon rashers, this dish looks good and is also yummy.

I make these every Christmas morning. My family loves them and they can be put together the night before and baked in the morning.
1 (18 count) pkg. frozen yeast bread rolls
1 pkg. butterscotch pudding (not instant)
1/2 c. cuts
1/2 c. butter
3/4 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. brown sugar
Place rolls in a buttered bundt pan. Pour dry butterscotch pudding mix over rolls. Sprinkle with nuts.
In a saucepan, heat butter, cinnamon and brown sugar, bring to a boil. Pour over bread. Let stand in a warm place overnight. Then bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes the next morning.
For us we always get up with the kids and dad plays games and reads to the girls while I get breakfast made. I always make scrambled eggs, bacon, biscuits, white gravy and banana's. We have some type of milk as well and EVERYBODY has to sit at the table with the television off. (my DH has a problem eating at the table with us unless under pressure) As I was saying. The last 8 years my dad will come over early in the morning as well bringing his gifts for the girls. Typically it is after we have eaten but occasionally we are blessed to have his company for that as well. When we open gifts everybody has to have one before anyone can open their gifts. Granted we the adults always hold ours and watch the kids as well as taking pics. We usually have 2 cameras going. The stockings are always done last as well mainly because I don't want the kids to get sidetracked with the candy I put in it.
Not sure if this helps but this is the gist of what we do for Christmas each year.

Hi, Shanea...I make strata, and chili cheese grits, and a braided Scandinavian bread. The strata is make the night before, as is the bread dough. In the morning, I just mix up the grits, braid the bread, and throw it all in the oven. About half an hour, all told, then the baking time. The strata can be plain...ham and cheese, or more exotic...Italian sausage and swiss chard. Let me know if you're interested in the recipes!

my neighbor has a really great baked french toast recipe, that you prepare in advance, like the day before, and then you bake it the morning of. i believe she just googled baked french toast and got the recipe. there may be more than one, but i think they are all pretty similar, i think you can just alter the ingredients.

My husband's femily makes sweedish pancakes for Christmas morning breakfast, they're kinda like crepes and they have all sorts of fruity toppings as well as sausage and bacon and everyone seems to really enjoy it. It's just a lesurely meal and people eat a little all morning long as they visit and the kids play.

it depends on when you eat later in the day for your family lunch or dinner. as we do lunch we make a small breakfast of fruit and nuts. It's nothing big but it gives us time to remind the kids to be thankful for whatever they get and to remind them of manners and how we expect them to act. All the commotion can really excite a child and make them forget the simple Thank you that means so much. If we had a dinner I would make a formal breakfast of pancakes/eggs/grits or maybe some sausage gravy and biscuits. A more filling, long lasting breakfast that makes you all warm inside and out for a cold morning.
Good luck no matter what you choose, the time together is what matters and the fond memories will come.

Every year I make baked french toast. I buy the texas toast. cut in in triangles, and use a dozen eggs, vanilla, and a little sugar and some cream.. pour it over and let it sit in the fridge overnight. Then on x mas morning I just pop it in the oven. I get to enjoy watching everyone open presents and not feel like I am slaving in the kitchen to make something special.

There is so much hustle and bustle with the holiday season that when you finally sit down for your Christmas breakfast you feel exhausted so my recommendation is your breakfast plates should be some pretty Christmas plates with soft calming music and a candle that can be relaxing as you eat whatever the family's favorite breakfast

When I was a kid our tradition was to have cinnamon rolls while opening presents (yes, my mom used the canned variety) then after all the presents were opened and us kids were playing with new toys or calling friends to tell them what we got, my mom would prepare a more traditional breakfast. Sometimes omelets, sometimes egg benedict, always fried potatoes and fresh squeezed orange juice. I plan on continuing the tradition now that I have a family.

My mom always did cinnamon rolls from a can... LOL! But I can understand why, we usually got up at like 5 AM to open presents so she didn't feel like cooking anything. I'm trying to think of my own tradition now... and I'm leaning towards french toast for breakfast... I love french toast and it's really not that hard to make. Plus it'll wear off by the time Christmas dinner rolls around. :)
