What a question.

Everyone know Christmas Day breakfast is chocolate!

We do bagels, smoked salmon and cream cheese. Used to be accompanied by Buck's Fizz but that was pre kids and we can't quite face it now we're up at Santa o'clock. Still lovely though.

Smoked salmon with scrambled eggs, and bucks fizz - lovely!

Smoked salmon with scramled duck eggs, on toasted bagels.

We do delicious cinnamon pull apart bread or pan au chocolate. Sometimes american pancakes with maple syrup and bacon.

Most of us are having American style pancakes with maple syrup (golden syrup in my case, yumm), make the batter the night before so no prep on Xmas morn, DP is having smoked salmon scrambled eggs and the DC will be having stocking chocolate but may pause long enough to eat a pancake!

I was thinking of doing Nigella's Christmas muffins this year.

We have warmed croissants filled with nice bacon or ham and melted cheese. Very tasty, especially with brown sauce!

Smoked salmon on blinis and/or rye bread and clementine bucks fizz.

For Boxing Day we'll have (brilliant hangover cure) Eggs Florentine with Irn Brun:

sourdough, spinach, poached egg, nutmeg, butter, hollandaise sauce and plenty of pepper.

Christmas muffins and fruit kebabs for the dc and lots of coffee for us first thing. They all like to eat the moment they wake up and so I prepare this the night before. Then after we have done presents and got dressed we have smoked salmon and eggs while the dc have chocolate.

*Irn Bru, obviously

No way am I cooking or indeed making any effort at breakfast, will be too busy with lunch the rest of the day.

I have bought an Almond Taste the Difference Panettone which I plan on toasting. May have some speshul drinks to go with.

Nivet, we do Nigellas Christmas muffins - they are yummy and dead easy!

LaCiccolina Fri 14-Dec-12 17:28:58

Smoke salmon n scramble eggs. And proper Buck's Fizz - prosecco, OJ and a shot of triple sec.


ditavonteesed Fri 14-Dec-12 17:30:57

another vote for smoked salmon and scrambled eggs with soe sort of fizzy stuff.

ravenAK Fri 14-Dec-12 17:35:34

Bagels here - scrambled eggs for dh & dc, smoked salmon for me.

& a huge, spicy Bloody Mary. Yum.

Hot chocolate or coffee with a good slug of Bailey's in it.

I only live a few streets from my mum but we sleep iver so we are all together in the morning along with my grandma and it is bacon butties all round!

TrillsCarolsOutOfTune Fri 14-Dec-12 17:40:26

Croissants with cheese and ham

mamaLou13 Fri 14-Dec-12 20:57:18

ooh some ovley ideas here. I might give nigella's muffins a go, not sure if dd will like them, they will get eaten though. We are vegetarian so salmon and bacon are not options in our house maybe pancakes.....

chocolateshoes Fri 14-Dec-12 20:59:26

croissants & bucks fizz

Blinis are good for salmon eaters and veggies - I warm the blinis up and do a mix - some cream cheese blobs and some salmon. Yum! I'm doing muffins this year though and have bought very festive muffin papers!

We're going to have a vegan with us this year...the main meal is no prob but I hadn't thought about breakfast, so will think on! Fruit salad perhaps.
