I’m looking for ideas. What’s everyone doing?

We'll be having either cinnamon buns or eggs benedict, the voting is 50/50 at the moment.

Chocolate panettone with apricot jam, a mug of hot chocolate and a glass of fizz. fgrin

We are probably unoriginal but we do brioche, croissant, fresh fruit, yoghurts etc. We’ve always had to have our son at the Cathedral fairly early, but this year we have more time to relax a bit. Our children don’t like large breakfasts, which limits things.

Smoked salmon and scrambled eggs on toast. Coffee and Champagne.

Every year. It's tradition in this household.

DismalDaphne Tue 28-Nov-17 21:05:01

Baileys and croissants

Dontsayyouloveme Tue 28-Nov-17 21:05:31

I’ll be having the Jus Roll croissants, cinnamon buns and pain au chocolate!

The usual, ie piece of toast with Bovril/Ready Brek/Cheerios. Maybe some chocolate or the clementines from the stockings.

Need to leave room to stuff ourselves at lunch.

Salmon with scrambled eggs and Bucks Fizz

ScouseQueen Tue 28-Nov-17 21:07:49

Bacon sandwiches and bucks fizz!

I must be really sensible cos me and the children usually have something healthy like Weetabix first thing (7am-ish). That way I know they've had something filling and fibrous before the chocolate avalanche descends grin

Can't stomach eggs before lunch. Might get some pastries in for me and ds1 for Boxing Day though smile

I let the kids eat chocolate for breakfast on Christmas morning blush shockchocolate coins or some of their selection pack, bacon sandwiches mid morning, we tend to have Christmas dinner around 2-3pm so don't faff with breakfast much.

I'm staying at the in laws and they have a full English. Don't know how I'll manage so much food!

confused123456 Tue 28-Nov-17 21:15:46

Same as usual for dh and ds, we don't see any need for special breakfasts.

AtleastitsnotMonday Tue 28-Nov-17 21:16:54

I really don’t do breakfast so will probably do a nice fruit platter for me, the family will have a selection of mini danishe and croissants, Christmas tree crumpets and mini bagels with cream cheese, salmon or scrambled egg.

Blueberry pancakes, Greek yoghurt, maple syrup.

PunkAssMoFo Tue 28-Nov-17 21:19:04

Bacon and egg butties as lunch is usually a bit later than normal.

QuopQuop Tue 28-Nov-17 21:19:09

We have a few coffees while the kids open their presents then we get ready and I will then put on some canapés and have Buck's Fizz and martini Asti! I also have my DM and Her partner over for this too, we open presents then we all go to the pub for a few hours! Then either go to DM or MIL for the rest of the day.

Cinnamon buns, croissants or cereal. I can't stomach smoked salmon in the morning.

SMCNI1968 Tue 28-Nov-17 21:19:57

CheesyFootballs Tue 28-Nov-17 21:24:07

Croissants and tea (and stocking chocolate for the DC)

Leaves plenty of room for copious amounts of bubbly and lunch grin

MotherofTerriers Tue 28-Nov-17 21:24:10

My vote is for eggs benedict and an espresso martini in the hot tub. DS is voting for chicken and chorizo burritos.
Given that we are all adults I’m very relaxed about what time the turkey goes in/lunch is ready so a substantial breakfast I think
