Cant decide between

bacon, eggs, sausages, leftover ham if we have that christmas eve, black pudding, grilled cherry plum tomatoes

Or scrambled egg and smoked salmon

Or omelettes.

Have heard of people having duck and quail eggs. Do you have them fried, poached or scrambled?

Champagne and orange juice
Croissants and Jams
Fresh fruit salad

This is the best thread ever - it's like food porn. I am so so upset that I will be pregnant over Christmas and so all of these joyous descriptions of drinking champagne and baileys etc are making me green with envy. There is nothing better than a glass of champagne on christmas morning with smoked salmon and cold prawns served with little triangles of bread and butter (crustless).

We usually have bacon butties but I'm always too excited to care about eating!

RobinsBaubleSparkles Wed 05-Dec-12 10:25:50

Lol at this thread.

All these posters with their smoked salmon and champers and I jump in with "bacon butties". grin

Could I BE any more wc! I am tres sophisticated.

Panettone and bucks fizz for adults.

Stocking chocolates for dc.

Baileys in my coffee as well . Classy.

I don't know yet this year! I think it's just us on xmas day so will have to ask before I do the shop.

last year was smoked salmon, scrambled eggs on a toasted muffin and buck's fizz for us, dd and my Dad had a bacon sarnie.

OK because of this thread I have broached the topic with dh and said that I think we should ring the changes this year! He looked like this shock (Aspergers on both sides of our family, we don't tend to fuck with the formula grin)

so we have decided that I am going to make a Chelsea bun-type confection with Christmas spices and sultanas in it, to be eaten warm with hot chocolate (and Bucks Fizz)

if our heads explode it will be your fault!

We have Nigella's Christmas Morning Muffins They've become a bit of a tradition in our house.

Delicious and really easy to make smile

GrannyRatAteAllTheMincePies Wed 05-Dec-12 10:35:05

Smoked salmon, scrambled eggs, muffins, bucks fizz. Can't wait.

greensleeves Nigellas Christmas muffins as mentioned below, are also nice in the morning and easy to make? Mine didn't last past Christmas eve though!

You could make a practice batch of something for the Sunday before Christmas, and, you know, ease yourselves into the idea?

I might actually keep the raw mix in the fridge and bake some in the morning for the family so we have them fresh and warm whilst hiding in the kitchen and shoving tea soaked shortbread sideways in my mouth.

Binfull I have just read your post and thought "Ooh, maybe I'll trial those at the weekend" grin

they sound lovely! And the kids will like them because they are cake

<btw I normally avoid you because I have a serious phobia of your posting name, but your Christmas name is so good it actually makes up for it - I hooted when I first saw it grin>

Chocolate and M&S Kir Royale cos dh is too tight to buy champagne grin

Bacon sandwiches and champagne, eaten in the lounge at Mum and Dad's (which is the only day of the year my Dad doesn't eat breakfast sat at the table!)

Myliferocks Wed 05-Dec-12 10:41:34

We just have the same as we would have on any other day of the year.
Have never thought to have anything different.

MightBeMad Wed 05-Dec-12 10:42:22

Ham, cooked overnight in the slow cooker, with freshly baked bread rolls (the part-baked type you can buy ion the shops and bung in the over for a12 mins - I'm not that much of a domestic godess grin )

last year I made pancakes. Haven't given this any thought before now tbh. Pancakes went down well though, might do it again.

Anyone who does not have chocolate money for breakfast on xmas day is a disgusting savage.

SweetMingePie Wed 05-Dec-12 10:47:34

My local butchery does festive sausages, hey are divine. We have them in buns, DH cooks them which is a miracle in itself.

Don't know how you all drink so early in the morning, I'd have to go of a nap if I had a drink in the morning.

AwaitingSnow Wed 05-Dec-12 10:49:00

Mmmm festive sausages. I wonder if there's a butchers round here that does them.

diddiehunter Wed 05-Dec-12 10:49:12

chocolate chocolate and chocolate! a brew and maybe some more chocolate if im hungry grin

lost I'm sure we all do! (but it doesn't count as breakfast if you eat them standing up, and hide the little foils in you dressing gown pocket.€

Unless your family all sit down to a full bowl of freshly peeled chocolate coins and a spoon? [frgin]

oops grin even.

<<puts Baileys quietly back in drinks cupboard>>

You can't beat Smarties for Christmas brakfast - have bought DS a big tube ready smile

what is festive about the sausages, the content or the way they look? Quite like that idea.
