Imagine Christmas morning for a moment: the crunch of gift wrap as it's crumpled and torn, children's laughter, and perhaps carols playing in the background. Envision snow falling outside your window, the glittery lights and ornaments on your tree, and your sister-in-law’s crazy bed-head as she shuffles around in pajamas looking for a mug of coffee to wake her up. Imagine the scent of fresh pine needles and crispy gingerbread cookies. Everything seems perfect — but something is missing from this Yuletide scene: breakfast.
It’s okay; you can eat bread pudding for breakfast on Christmas Day. This one is rich and sweet and has a hint of holiday spice thanks to the cinnamon.
This healthier version of hash has lots of flavor thanks to the chorizo and sweet potato. It’s a hearty and delicious breakfast and the leftovers are great for breakfast tacos or omelets.
This French toast is flavored with cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves for an authentic gingerbread flavor. You can even use a cookie cutter to cut the slices of bread into gingerbread man shapes before battering and frying the French toast.
Who says the Christmas ham is just for dinner? Use a few slices in these tasty breakfast sandwiches. If you don’t have a waffle iron, you can cook the biscuits according the package instructions and serve the sandwiches on biscuits instead.
The balance of creamy pumpkin, spicy chorizo, sweet caramelized onion relish, and tangy goat cheese make this dish a welcome addition at any meal.
Minced ginger and dried orange peel give these spiced muffins an old-fashioned holiday flavor. Make them the day before and reheat them on Christmas morning with homemade ginger butter.
