Tomorrow is Christmas! This means that you get to celebrate a festive and joyous holiday. Oh, and many will be opening gifts as well. Yay!
However, it also means that you’ll have to make Christmas morning breakfast after going to bed late and getting up early. Boo!
The last thing you’ll probably want to do tomorrow morning is make a huge breakfast, but people still have to eat. Christmas morning breakfast doesn’t have to be as informal as cold cereal, but it doesn’t have to take hours to prepare. Here are a few quick and simple – yet tasty – Christmas morning breakfast ideas for tomorrow…
No, you do not have to get up before the crack of dawn to make pancakes for Christmas morning breakfast. The great thing about pancakes is that they reheat well. Just make a big batch tonight before going to bed, and reheat them in the toaster or oven, or on the stove, tomorrow morning. To make things even quicker and simpler, use a boxed pancake mix! No sense in making things even more difficult for yourself.
Eggs in Toast
Toad-in-a-hole, eggs-in-a-hole, eggs-in-a-basket.. Whatever you want to call it, it’s still easy to cook, making it a great Christmas morning breakfast. Just cut a hole in the center of a piece of bread, and toss it into a buttered pan. Crack an egg into the whole in the bread, and let both cook. For an extra festive element, use a Christmas themed cookie cutter to make the hole.
cook some meat, like bacon or sausage, in a cast iron or stainless steel oven-safe pan. Saute some diced vegetables, like peppers and onions, in the skillet, and cover the mixture with shredded cheese. Cover all of that with some whisked eggs, cook it on the stove top for a bit, and transfer it to a hot oven until the eggs are set. A frittata make great Christmas morning breakfast, mainly because it’s quick and simple to make, but also because there’s no right or wrong way to make it. You can use what you have on hand, and it will almost always turn out great!
Slow Cooker Breakfasts
When i first heard of crock pot breakfasts, I was a little weary to even try them. However, I’ve found that a crock pot breakfast is often one of the easiest Christmas morning breakfasts to make. You can find recipes for slow cooker oatmeal, slow cooker eggs, and slow cooker hash browns online. Just be sure to butter the inside of your slow cooker well to prevent sticking, and only cook it on low.
You can’t get much easier than fresh fruit for a Christmas morning breakfast! Serve up some sliced apples, grapes, peel orange slices, and halved grapefruits, and you have a quick, easy and healthy Christmas morning breakfast. You can prepare most of it the night before, and if you slice apples the night before, make sure you brush on a little lemon juice to prevent browning.
