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?

The traditional Christmas breakfast - chocolate.

monahue Sun 20-Oct-13 10:01:57

Oh yes - a Terry's choco orange can be the amuse bouche before I start scoffing the cinnamon buns!

lucysmam Sun 20-Oct-13 10:02:01

Still no idea confused I have a whole threads worth of ideas to try out grin

Waitrose do freezer bags of cinnamon buns & other breakfast pastries for £1-£2 a bag.

YY, breakfast is the gold coins that you get in your stocking plus the last advent calendar chocolate (the big one) and the contents of a selection box, if you're still peckish.

Btw, OP your post reminded me of Sally Phillips' character in Miranda! grin

Do they raisah, that's very useful to know, thank you!

We had pancakes last year with a choice of toppings. DD recently said "I love Christmas because we get to have pancakes for breakfast!" so I guess that has cemented it into tradition (one of the few I didn't nick from MN grin)

I used to have grilled grapefruit when I was little.

fuzzpig Sun 20-Oct-13 10:12:31

I would quite like French toast with cinnamon sugar though

monahue Sun 20-Oct-13 10:19:44

Arf at Robin Sparkles! I do love Miranda! Deffo loving the choco themed brekko suggestions - can't quite get my head around grilled grapefruit though! shock

DevaDiva Sun 20-Oct-13 10:20:48

Last year we had cinnamon Christmas tree bread from Morrisons, I've seen they're doing a reindeer head shaped one this year grin that was while we opened Santa stockings. Then we had pancakes which is the DCs absolute favourite breakfast.

This year we're at my parents along with my sisters, their DHs and DCs so pancakes for 16! can't wait and the DCs are insanely excited about being with their cousins for Christmas grin fortunately parents just about have enough room for us all!

HereComesHoneyBooBooDragon Sun 20-Oct-13 10:22:02

Aaaaah, nothing says the 70's like grilled grapefruit. <<nostalgic>>

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.

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

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

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.

missmargot Sun 20-Oct-13 10:37:05

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.

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

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)

oscartopia Sun 20-Oct-13 17:14:02

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

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!

JiltedJohnsJulie Mon 21-Oct-13 07:05:23

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

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!

Mckayz Mon 21-Oct-13 10:22:46

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

sonlypuppyfat Mon 21-Oct-13 10:26:49

Whats a vegetarian fry up? An egg!

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

What's a vegetarian fry up? An egg


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

sonlypuppyfat Mon 21-Oct-13 21:45:45

Potato scones sound yummy

makemineapinot Mon 21-Oct-13 21:50:54

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

isitsnowingyet Mon 21-Oct-13 21:52:09

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

PelvicFloorClenchReminder Mon 21-Oct-13 21:53:47

We're having pannettone.

Or should I say

We totes scoffo a panno.

DumSpiroSpero Mon 21-Oct-13 22:42:59

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!

IcedTeaOneSugar Mon 21-Oct-13 22:55:30

We made these last year, chocolate swirl buns.

rachyconks Mon 21-Oct-13 22:59:53

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!

humphryscorner Mon 21-Oct-13 23:00:40

Ah we used to have grilled grapefruit !
Buck's Fizz and what ever there is as I'm pissing off to Spain this year !! winesmile

WallyBantersJunkBox Mon 21-Oct-13 23:02:29

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.....

MadeOfStarDust Tue 22-Oct-13 08:52:54

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