    Default Christmas breakfast traditions/recipes

    I'd love to start our own tradition of Christmas breakfast for my family, but am finding it hard to find good/quick/easy breakfast ideas. I don't want to be stuck cooking bacon and eggs while the kids open presents! I thought maybe a make ahead / baked french toast might be good, given we will be out for lunch. What does everyone else do?

    We make croissants and serve with ham and cheese.

    We use bought pastry and roll the croissants the day before ready to go in the oven in the morning. Pre cut the ham and cheese and that way you don't have to spend much time in the kitchen Christmas morning.

    Thanks @BettyV. What pastry do you use? Where can you buy it from?

    I would love to give things a bit of a try before the day!

    We have pastries and a lovely platter of stone fruit with a bottle is champagne. Often some chocolate as well.

    If my mum is in charge we have ham and eggs but I find that pretty heavy considering what the rest of the day will involve.

    We open our stockings but then it's breakfast and getting dressed so the rest of presents are much later.
    I normally cook breakfast, stuffed mushrooms, breakfast bruschetta, honey roast peaches and yoghurt. Can mostly all be prepared the day before which helps.

    We'll be having pain au chocolat on xmas morning. I'll make them the night before and then warm them in the morning. This our first family xmas so it'll be new traditions for us as well!

    We do ham and cheese croissants for the kids and partner and I have tomato avo and cheese. I serve this with freshly squeezed oj (I have golden grapefruit).

    I prep all the croisants the night before and have them on oven trays in the morning then I squeeze oranges with my kids and we talk about what might be in the presents santa left. Then when my partner is up (a bit of a lazy bones) we do presents with breakfast.

    We have pancakes, ham, and eggs with lots of maple syrup. Usually do presents first and then breakfast later so don't miss out on watching everyone open presents.

    We do pancakes but use xmas cookie cutters as rings so the pancakes come out in xmas tree or candy cane shapes plus this year I'm going to try a fruit xmas tree likes these :

    We get up, the men cook bacon, eggs and tomatos on the bbq while the kids get dressed, we eat, then we open presents. Its the way we have always done it so the kids dont even ask about presents until after breakfast (and normally we have to tell them to open them lol). Xmas morning is really relaxed for us. But in saying that, we stay with family at xmas so we are all in the 1 place anyway, we arent having to worry about going anywhere later on.
