    Looking for new Christmas Eve/ day breakfast ideas! What do you guys normally eat or make food breakfast. At my house normally it's 10 of us so we make a big meal!

    Our tradition is Sara Lee Butter Streusel Coffee Cake---but that's not to everyone's taste!

    We usually get some breakfast sausage or bacon from a local meat market (where I get my Christmas ham) and I make cinnamon rolls. I typically make dough on Christmas rather than pre-made or tube pastries, but I know that other people do a lot more and sometimes a lot less. It all depends on your taste and how much time you want to invest in making breakfast.

    I have to add that when I was a kid, my dad and I had a Christmas Eve tradition for several years in which we'd have breakfast at the Waffle House. Afterward we'd head out for some last minute shopping, and the employees at Waffle House always seemed to be cheery on the day before Christmas. We kept the tradition alive for the first year or two after I was married, but after adding a kid or two I had obligations at home that kept me away from my greasy spoon Christmas Eve breakfast.

    how about a breakfast casserole? thats what I'm thinking of having this year.Most of them can be made ahead of time so all you have to do Christmas morning is throw it in the oven.There's all kinds out there some made with hash browns and others with bread so probaly the best way is to google recipes and find one that sounds good to you:sparkle:

    We do cinnamon rolls. I prefer to make them home made but I cheat some times and buy the frozen ones.

    We usually do a coffee cake of some type too.

    we have always done raisin bread, hand made by my mom with cheese's cold cuts and jams. But mom being elderly and her hands not so good anymore can no longer make it so we are going to change things this year and make a new tradition.
    I want to do a breakfast casserole too.I have a blueberry baked french toast we all like and am going to look up one made with eggs and sausage or bacon.

    If I make breakfast, it's usually cinnamon rolls, and/or sausages. I cook so much on Thanksgiving Eve/Day and Christmas Eve/Day that I'm just not up for messing with a fancy breakfast.

    :give:I make a baked omelet for Christmas morning. it's a very versatile recipe, so I can change whatever I want to put in it, ham, mushrooms, sausage. I serve fruit, and pumpkin bread with it, and it's become a family favorite for the holidays.

    Wow! Tons of you guys make cinnamon rolls?

    Sometimes we have mimosas and those little Sister Schubert's mini-sausages in a biscuit…that pie plate thing that you cook in the over. I NEVER eat processed foods so it's a HUGE treat…also, mimosas rules.

    My family is normally so tired from cooking Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve, that we normally just eat cereal or ramen noodles. No one even wants to think about cooking breakfast. :lol:

    I LOOOOVE what I shouldn't have so last year I put slabs of chocolate into croissants and warmed them in the oven on Christmas morning. Delicious! As we don't usually have sugary cereals Santa would bring the kids the most gimmicky ones and they would have those (not as amazing as cereals available in USA). This year we are having every different pancake my son can dream up! The different kinds I just read about sound fantastic!

    Ever since we moved to NY we have had the tradition of having Blueberry Stuffed French Toast with blueberry sauce and Cocoa. We make it the night before because it has to refrigerate over night and while it's baking in the oven we have cocoa and open some gifts. When breakfast is ready we get out the Christmas breakfast plates that go with our cocoa mugs and have our morning meal and then finish opening presents.
