we usually buy pastries for breakfast but the kids end up eating the goodies,if any, from their stockings and are too wrapped up in presents to care about eating until the dinner, which is about 1 pm like you.
this year we're going to try somethng different and actually are doing a breakfast wth some extended family. We're gonna try quiche and quickbreads, things that can be made and just put out so I can spend time with the little ones.
The stockings, I always try to put somethng sort of healthy in there...maybe those fruit-veggie smoothies for kids with winnie pooh or elmo on them, and yogurt melts. Things like that. They are little, and they think these things are candy.
My sis in law made these awesome looking bacon/egg/cheese sandwiches that you can make ahead and just warm in the microwave, I'm going to make a batch of those for Christmas morning, because like you, we eat a big dinner and I don't want to have to clean the kitchen twice on the holiday!

OMG. I must have the recipe for the pancakes. MUST!!!
This year i plan on making cinnamon roll pancakes with cream cheese syrup!
Ive heard alot of people say that. I just looked up a recipe one day and made it it turned out great (i actually dont follow recipes i use them more as an outline or guide) i then taught my fiance to make it and now he always makes it. My 15 year old sister makes really good biscuits and gravy 2 but my 22 yr old sister and 17 yr old sister only think they know how to make it.
Oh, I love biscuits and gravy! But I have never mastered the recipe for gravy.
Weve kind of started a tradition with the inlaws where they come over in the morning and we make biscuits and gravy for breakfast Its gonna be a little harder this year because were also making christmas dinner and were not even cooking at home were cooking at my grandmas so christmas morning will be a little rushed this year.
I usually make cinnamon rolls. This year I'm going to do some sort of breakfast caserole that I can prep the night before. Christmas dinner for us is usually a big thing but I'm going to switch that up this year too and do something simple.
