Any ideas for something special/different to do for a vegetarian Christmas breakfast? All ideas gratefully received!

I'm not a veggie but personally I LOVE toasted sourdough with mashed avocado and a poached egg. It's just heaven. AND it's filling enough to help the recipient last until lunch.
Or, you could do a nice, homemade granola ( really simple, make in advance, out in a tub and it keeps fine) with some beautiful full fat Greek yoghurt, mixed berries ( get them out of the fridge 30 mins before serving ) and some nice having honey.........oh hell, my mouth is watering!
Hope this helps.!

Different to what?

Last year I did duck eggs, avocado & asparagus. Which is not actually very different to a normal breakfast for me but I love it.

Year before, cinammon buns. Made night before & proved in fridge overnight.

What's a Christmas Day breakfast? Like a Sunday second (hobbit) breakfast?

Chocolate, that's what we have!

Followed by cooked breakfast

Most breakfasts are veggie once you think about it. And veggie sausages and bacon are easily obtained

selection box and shloer is the usual christmas breakfast here. our actual cooked breakfast is around 3pm veggie bacon on rolls when I can wake up enough to make it.

Like the sound of the toasted sourdough and avocado, Yorkshire. Thank you.

I make poached eggs, home made hashbrowns, sauteed mushrooms, pancakes, avocado, bubble and squeak, potato farls and home made baked beans.

mince pies and a chocolate orange

Croissants or pain-au-chocolat

I'm vegetarian and we usually have pain au chocolat on Christmas day.

You could do a selection of food: a fruit bowl, pastries, eggs, sourdough toast, asparagus as someone else mentioned

Eggy Bread / French toast

Eggs Benedict?

Actually I think Christmas morning breakfast in bed for the person who was up latest on Christmas Eve wrapping stuff should be the law.

Nigella did a really complicated egg thing the other week, with yogurt, eggs drained through a tea strainer before poaching and various other faffyness, it was not one of her best I thought.

Please don't serve asparagus at this time of year or at Christmas , it is tasteless and stringy imported stuff. Wait until late spring and enjoy proper English asparagus during its rightful season. Keep food seasonal!!!

A proper Christmas morning breakfast, veggie or otherwise, is:

A cup of tea delivered by your DC
Your stocking delivered to your bedside by your DC, along with his stocking.
You eat the tangerines from both your stocking and his (he doesn't like tangerines, but father christmas always puts one in, because tradition).
He eats the entire selection box from his stocking, and feels a bit sick. He does not admit feeling a bit sick.
You eat some of the walnuts from your stocking's toe.
At some point you are desperate for another cup of tea and put some toast on for you both while you are up. You also cut up the apple from the stocking for your DC in order to ameliorate the effects of the selection box.

Though this year, I might go mad and make some waffles in the waffle-maker. Those are quite heavy, so there would have to be a decent interval between the selection box and breakfast proper.

Eggs Benedict?

You know that’s got ham? smile

Eggs florentine is nice though.

I like the sound of the mince pie and chocolate orange.

GinUnicorn Sun 05-Nov-17 20:17:45

I like croissant and mimosa personally mmm

viques Sun 05-Nov-17 23:10:20

Oops!* benedict/florentine* I always get them muddled! as,you say both delicious!

Fosterdog123 Sun 05-Nov-17 23:14:08

Well I'm going to RavingRoos for brekkie. I'll be there about 10ish, ok?

RavingRoo Sun 05-Nov-17 23:21:02

By all means the more the merrier!
