We normally just have chocolates! But I am planning to do the dinner a bit later at about 4pm ish so want something a bit more substantial. What sort of things do you all have?

Bacon sarnies.

Nothing! Love to be really hungry for lunch.

Crumpets or egg on toast. Nothing extravagant in this household grin We have lunch early, around 1, so never have anything big.

Danish pastries, those jus roll cinnamon buns, pain au chocolat.

Nothing that takes longer than 2 mins to throw in the oven and then plate up.

Thinly sliced Christmas ham, soft scrambled egg, really good toast and butter, plenty of English mustard, Buck's Fizz, real coffee. It's as important to us as turkey and trimmings, and we eat it on Boxing Day too. I can't wait!!

We eat later too - around 5pm, so we have brunch of bagels with smoked salmon and cream cheese or scrambled eggs, French pastries for DC, home made fresh fruit salad, bucks fizz. I might do eggs Florentine this year as well, so people can choose want they want.

Gingerbread waffles with maple syrup +/- bacon
Cranberry and orange muffins

Either bacon sandwiches or salmon and cream cheese bagels. This year i'm pretty sure the DTs will vote for bacon. grin

Huge croissant with grilled bacon scrambled egg mushrooms and toms.

Croissants, toast and maybe cinnamon buns. None of us are fans of cooked breakfasts and although I love smoked salmon I couldn't face it that early in the day.

Bagels with smoked salmon and scrambled eggs. Never heard of gingerbread waffles though - what are they?
I usually get chocolate croissants for the dcs but they love waffles piled up with fruit and cream, might do that this year.

OpiesOldLady Sun 06-Dec-15 09:38:03

Toasted crusty bread with festive cinnamon honey butter.

Crumpets shaped like Christmas Trees (Kingsmill)

When I was a kid my granny used to get kellogs variety packs. It was the ultimate treat!

I like doing waffles. We sometimes do pastries but of course they have to be from the previous day and heated up which is never quite as nice as you'd like it to be.

Smoked salmon, scrambled eggs and bucks fizz, I prefer it to Christmas lunch smile

Bacon rolls. This year I've also got some Jus-rol pain au chocolate and cinnamon rolls, so we'll probably have them as well.

fuzzpig Sun 06-Dec-15 10:34:16

If in a savoury mood, scrambled eggs with chorizo, parmesan, pine nuts and veg like peppers.

If in a sweet mood, pancakes.

Although this year (and tomorrow for my birthday) I might do French toast with cinnamon sugar, bananas and strawberries.

trixymalixy Sun 06-Dec-15 10:36:49

Smoked salmon and scrambled eggs for the adults. The kids are allergic to egg so will have croissants or pancakes (vegan)

guinnessgirl Sun 06-Dec-15 10:37:59

Normal breakfast food! Got enough going on with making an extravagant lunch without faffing around with complicated breakfast too.

WhyIRayLiotta Sun 06-Dec-15 10:46:09

Cinnamon and raisin bagels, bacon and cream cheese. And champagne.

jamtartandcustard Sun 06-Dec-15 10:47:59

Croissants, pain au chocolates and poptarts.

MummyPig24 Sun 06-Dec-15 11:32:06

Cinnamon rolls, bacon sandwiches, fruit salad, chocolate.
