I have discovered the perfect Christmas Day breakfast - IKEA's cinnamon buns! They are mucho delicioso and have made my house smell unseasonably festive - they'll be lush on the morning of the big day accompanied by a glad of Bucks Fizz! smile
What will YOU be having?

bacon roll for us - bacon cooked the night before - then blasted in the frying pan in the morning to crispy up.... yummm.......

I can second Nigella's Christmas muffins. I always make a batch for my team for the morning of the last office day before Christmas.

Put the ingredients into a jug in the fridge the night before and have the cake cases ready - bake when I'm in the shower. Easy peasy.

For Christmas morning we start with a huge teapot of scalding tea and a plate of shortbread fingers while cracking into the stockings.

Might give the cinnamon buns a trial run in the next few weeks.....

Cheese & bacon breakfast muffins this year.

150g self raising flour
1 large egg
125ml milk
1tsp mustard (powder)
Loads of cheese
Loads of bacon.

Easiest ever thing to make and sooooo delicious straight from the oven!

We made these last year, chocolate swirl buns.

We usually have toasted brioche with smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. DD will have pain au chocolat.

I also like 'Blackstone Eggs' - split English muffin, each half topped with crispy grilled bacon, a thick slice of grilled beef tomato and a poached egg, glazed with cheese sauce and served with hash browns.

Tbh though it's a bit of faff on Christmas morning!

We're having pannettone.

Or should I say

We totes scoffo a panno.

Smoked salmon on thin wholemeal toast triangles with lemon slices + cucumber slices washed down with champagne (this is what we have for brunch at around 11.00) - breakfast happens earlier - like the idea of cinnamon buns with coffee first thing though

mumofwombat that's what we do too but in Scotland!! Usually just square slice sausage, black pudding and bacon and sometimes we have to open the garage door and BBQ in doorway or under big umbrellas! Think it originally started when dad decided to do Xmas breakfast and mum wanted him out the way!!! Delish tho smile

Potato scones sound yummy

What's a vegetarian fry up? An egg

grin

Egg, potato scones, mushrooms, beans.
DH likes the Linda Macartney sausages and DD (who isn't vegetarian) likes "Veggie Bacon"

Cooked breakfast of sausages, fried or poached egg, grilled bacon, mushrooms, a hash brown, baked beans and toast grin

We had crossiants and pain au chocolat last year as DS1's choice. But I can be very tempted by Cinnamon buns

MumofWombat Mon 21-Oct-13 07:55:20

We have the full Australian. Which is similar to a full English breakfast so eggs, bacon, sausage, hash browns, beans, tomatoes, toast. But cooked on the BBQ!
We'll come inside after and switch on the air con!

I did Nigellas Christmas muffins last year, really easy as you can weigh out everything the night before. There were delicious.

MamaBear17 Sun 20-Oct-13 17:36:07

I can't eat chocolate first thing, makes me feel sick. I blame dd because I was never like that pre-pregnancy! We will be having pancakes, raisin and lemon for me and dd, white choc and cranberry for DH. We will have a second breakfast about 11at PILs which is usually croissants and pain au chocolate with bucks fizz. Christmas dinner isn't until 4 at my parents so two breakfasts are needed to keep us going!

Bit of a daft tradition really, we have always had DW's home made bread still hot from the oven (Funny but she never gets around to baking it any other time) and a gass of bucks fizz - Always a great start smile

Oohh I bought the IKEA buns (once)

Not a fan, they were a bit bland and doughy,

Costco and Lidl do scrummy round patisserie tear and share buns in a foil dish.

Usually Christmas Day breakfast is toast and nice jam.
(On the 24th we might have pancakes, On the 26th, Big Vegetarian Fry Up)

Bunnygirlie Sun 20-Oct-13 10:38:33

Bagels with cream cheese and salmon, nom nom nom

One year we also had some bucks fizz too, it is Christmas after all grin

I love Ikea cinnamon buns and their frozen pancakes are also surprisingly amazing, especially with their chocolate and butterscotch spread on them.

Baked French toast is still the favourite Christmas breakfast in this house though.

We have just had cinnamon buns from ikea for brekkie!

We all loved them. It was a great way to start a Sunday of really boring chores.

Iamsanta Sun 20-Oct-13 10:31:28

deva I've never seen them? Is it fresh bread?

HalloweenDidi Sun 20-Oct-13 10:28:31

We always have eggy bread on Christmas morning. After stockings, before church. Dd1 requested it when she was 6 and it's stuck since then.
