Eggs Molinaro (named after a friend of mine!)
Ingredients:
eggs
proscuitto
cream or half and half
fresh basil, finely chopped
parmesan cheese

Procedure:
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!

Merry Christmas

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
Ingredients

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

Directions

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.

I know it's past christmas, you can always make a casserole with biscuits on the bottom, scramble eggs with any toppings you want in it pour over raw biscuits add any cheese bake at 350 for 45-1hr until eggs are cooked. You can assemble night before and bake next morning really good.

I have doing this since I can remember. Christmas morning Myself my husband and my kids ages 12 and 5 open our gifts. Then everyone gets to tell me what they want for breakfast. Its the only day I become a short order cook for them. Evrything from french toast to eggs to bacon hashbrowns anything u could imagine. I love to cook for my family so its as much of a treat for me as it is for my kids.shh dont tell them I enjoy it that much. Meanwhile my husband opens up toys and put batteries in a few and cleans up wrapping paper. We all eat our breskfast in front of the tv watching a christmas story. Afterwards we all enjoy our gifts and relax before we have to run to the grandparents houses. They look forward to it every year!!

Any breakfast casserole or baked french toast. You can stir it up the night before and stick it in the oven while the family opens presents.

We have usually eaten enough ham by Christmas morning - so pork rashers with grilled tomato, mushrooms, poached eggs and wilted baby spinach is great. Quicker is impossible pie.

whatever you make make sure you don't use too many carbs. i good breakfast idea is a homemade mexican omlet with eggs, cheese, peppers, meat of choice. try to skip on the dip

[deleted account]

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!

I've always done cinnamon rolls. They can be the frozen ones if you want. Your kids won't mind, they will just remember the smell. I used to make a lot of them from scratch and give them as gifts to my neighbors.

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 always make cinnamon rolls. My mom made them when I was little, so I just carried on the tradition with my family.

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.

We have homemade waffles and fruit salad. It is a bit of work but I love it. It is also pretty much the only day of the year I take the time to make waffles so it is a special treat. Oh and bacon....mmmm.... I love bacon.

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.

STICKY BUNS

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.

We do a hashbrown casserole, fruit, and apple cinnamon muffins. (sometimes I just do an egg casserole too)

[deleted account]

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.

We have ham and cheese crossants, it is something easy so my husband can make them while I clean up all the presents and wrapping mess (lol). It also puts something hot in our stomaches before all the sugary things.

Christmas Morning Wife Saver - Best of Bridge cookbooks - make it ahead of time, stick it in the oven when you wake, then by the time presents are opened - VOILA - breakfast is ready. AND SO GOOD!!

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

We do caramel rolls and hot chocolate. So unbelievably unhealthy, but it is Christmas and getting to drink hot cocoa for breakfast is just so unbelievable that the kids can still hardly believe it!!

[deleted account]

quiche. It's so easy to make especially with a store bought pie dough. It's pretty much eggs, cheese, and whatever you'd like in it. My favorite filling is swiss cheese, pepper bacon, and onion.
