Smoked salmon bagels are good

Scrambled egg & smoked salmon

Croissants, brioche with butter & jams, pastries, orange juice & good coffee

Freshly sqeezed orange juice, with fresh croissants and some good coffee. I get the croissants in a roll to bake ourselves, so then we can put some nutella into DD's and leave ours plain (some year I will think of something exciting to put into ours).

BiddyPop put a slice of marzipan in for an almond croissant. smile

Cooked breakfast with Buck's Fizz

Venison sausages,
Streaky bacon,
Black pudding,
Poached/scrambled egg,

All piled on top of a potato cake

Yummmm yummmm

We always have Eggs Benedict. It feels like a bit of a treat without being too heavy before dinner. You could do Eggs Royale for a change.

Or scotch pancakes with crispy streaky bacon sandwiched between them with a bit of maple syrup on top?

Can't think what it's actually called.

Bucks Fizz or orange juice

Hi everyone, new to mumsnet although been a lurker on the Christmas forum for a long time ;)
I am doing a Christmas day brunch for my parents before going to inlaws for Christmas dinner. All your suggestions so far are great. Any tips on good eggs benedict recipe? I LOVE eggs benedict.

eggy bread made with the leftover from a bloomer loaf bought for Christmas Eve lunch.
With vegetarian bacon (my DD loves it but it gives her the worst wind) shock

The mazipan croissants sound fantastic smile

We usually have Ackee & Saltfish with a rum/lime cocktail - try to warm up the London day.

Kids aren't too keen though - maybe blueberry ricotta pancakes & bacon with maple syrup this year.
