Wondering what to do for a special Xmas breakfast. Usually do pancakes but we have had those a lot recently. Considering cinnamon roles but I need a good recipe...

This is for fussy kids so not smoked salmon etc

I have just ordered a chocolate panettone. Yum!!

kittys0ftpaws Sun 21-Dec-14 20:57:09

Pain au chocolate & croissants for us, I refuse to spend loads of time in the kitchen on Christmas Day!

I came on to say Pancakes so I'm not much use to be honest!

We have home-cooked gammon and fried eggs, sometimes with sauté spuds.
This keeps us going until a latish lunch.

Pannatone, and chocolate coins. Clementines if you think they should have some of their five-a-day.

Waitrose frozen (but baked of course!) pain au chocolat and pain aux raisins for us. I lay the table before I go to bed so it's all Christmassy when we come down in the morning. I found some Christmas napkin folding instructions on Pinterest so will do those too.

This year we are having individual Apple and cornflake pots( this is supposed to be a dessert- but it's christmas!) and nigellas Christmas morning muffins which are already in muffin cases in freezer ready to bake on christmas morn...

Brioche and a posh jam? DNiece loves brioche.

Otherwise I love the idea that another Mnetter had of letting her DC have their favourite "junk" cereal, something like Coco pops etc.

I am hoping for some coco pops on a teeny box in my stocking grin

Anything goes here, usually Croissants and sausage rolls but have pannetone, mince pies sometimes too or a bacon or sausage sandwich.

We don't eat until four ish or later so need something reasonably substantial.

chickydoo Sun 21-Dec-14 21:14:54

Mine have
A chocolate Santa, followed by a bag of chocolate coins, a few items from a selection box. Happy rules at Christmas, everyone has what they fancy.

CurlyWurlyCake Sun 21-Dec-14 21:16:53

They have chocolate croissants and I have croissants with bacon and Buck's Fizz

MincePieDiet Sun 21-Dec-14 21:20:07

Bacon and egg rolls with Buck's Fizz. Have also got a large Christmas tree shaped brioche from aldi.

XmasSpiritKeepsAnOrchidAlive Sun 21-Dec-14 21:20:26

We usually have croissants with jam but I have found I am hungry between a 7am start to the day and not sitting down to eat Xmas lunch until 3pm ish so will snack on easy to reach items like the chocolate and crisps! So this year, I'm going to do an English breakfast and hope it lasts us all until the late afternoon!

Always smoked salmon & scrambled eggs here. I keep meaning to try Nigella's Christmas Morning Muffins but it just seems like too much faff when you'll be cooking all morning anyway.

Here's my cinnamon roll recipe, if you're interested. You make them the night before, refrigerate overnight and bake in the morning. I'm American so all instructions are in American measurements.

Overnight Cinnamon Rolls

1 ½ c. warm milk
½ c. sugar
3 teas. dry yeast
¾ c. butter, melted
3 eggs
5-7 c. flour
¼ teas. salt

2 c. sugar
3-4 Tbs. cinnamon
5 Tbs. butter melted

In a large bowl, combine milk and sugar and stir until sugar is dissolved. Add yeast and let dissolve until slightly frothy, about 10 min. Add butter, eggs and 2 cups of flour, stirring to combine. Add salt. Gradually add more flour, stirring after each addition. Continue adding flour until dough comes together and is no longer sticky. Turn dough out onto a floured board and knead for 2 minutes. Return dough to bowl and cover. Allow dough to rise until doubled in volume. Punch dough down and knead again, approx. 2 minutes. Divide dough in half.

Roll out one portion of dough to approx. 10x14 (inches). Brush with ½ of melted butter and sprinkle liberally with sugar and cinnamon. Starting on short side, roll dough into a tight cylinder. Slice cylinder into 6 rolls and place into a buttered 9x13 (inches) pan. Repeat with second portion of dough. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.

Remove rolls from refrigerator. Set in a warm place to rise until slightly puffy, about 30 min. Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F). When oven is ready, place in oven and bake 30 mins.

2 ½ oz. cream cheese
3 Tbs. milk
1 ½ c. powdered sugar

Mix together cream cheese and milk, until smooth. Add powdered sugar and mix until smooth. Spread over rolls and serve.

We have smoked salmon eggs Benedict

BettysFestiveFrolics Sun 21-Dec-14 21:52:51

What about these Christmas buns? I've made them loads of times as just cinnamon buns and they're lush!

Davros Sun 21-Dec-14 22:07:31

We are going to have blinis, smoked salmon and creme fraiche with chives and tea. But now I'm adding chocolate panettone to my list. Nothing that needs too much cooking and can be eaten round the tree fsmile

Nigella's Christmas Morning Muffins are part of our breakfast every year. I bake then freeze them in advance. Take them out to defrost before bed on christmas eve & warm in the oven before serving. Very straightforward to make & I have done them on the morning too - prep by mixing wet & dry ingredients separately & then combining just before baking.

Youngest DS highly suspicious of fruit in cake/muffins so he has chocolate croissants.

Some years we have smoked salmon & scrambled eggs - DCs just take eggs with toast.

Why not boiled or poached eggs with toast cut into christmassy shapes using cookie cutters? Trees or holly leaves would be great.

Protein based breakfast will keep you fuller for longer.

FixItUpChappie Sun 21-Dec-14 22:36:14

we are doing.....

-blueberry muffins (popped in the oven after stockings)
-smoked salmon on bagels with cream cheese
-strawberry/banana yogurt smoothies

GahLinDah Sun 21-Dec-14 22:36:31

MrsLindor Mon 22-Dec-14 07:31:40

I've ordered a breakfast mini basket, it's got muffins, croissants and I think pain au raisin.

We're having a picky lunch on Christmas day so it'll all roll into a running buffet, dinner isn't till 5pm at MILs.

LucasNorthsBaubles Mon 22-Dec-14 07:46:57

LePetitMarseillais Mon 22-Dec-14 08:05:37
