Looking for New Ideas for Christmas Day Breakfast

Ask a Question

Normally on Christmas day we have coffee, buck fizz and croissants as we don't eat lunch until later in the day. I don't want anything which is too much work, as I want to concentrate on opening presents with the family. Or too heavy, as we will be having a large meal later on.

I am looking for something a little different to change things up. Any suggestions ?

What about bagels with smoked salmon and cream cheese?

or a fresh fruit platter with natural yogurt?

Ann1984 I've been pretty lucky. Also got a slot for 30th December so that I can get all the New Years goodies in.

Maybe it's because I'm in a different area with more availability πŸ€”

I hope that you sort something out.

Just a word of warning I did this a few years ago with Sainsbury's, it was the year we had a lot of snow and they just cancelled without any noticed, so it was a mad scramble to get enough booze as we had neighbours coming around for drinks TheChimp

lornaae I used to like Birds Eye Crispy Pancakes back in the 80s, but they're not very nice now ☹️

I'm not a big fan of normal pancakes tbh, but I will cook them for my wife every so often. She'll go for basic sugar and lemon or maple syrup if we have any in.

Similar except muesli and banana for me, and am unlikely to drink until late evening although I enjoy a drink I have never even considered drinking alcohol at breakfast time, I sometimes wonder if those who do so have an alcohol problem.πŸ˜€

It's always been doorstop bacon sandwiches but this year it's going to be American pancakes (cheat's mix Aunt Jemima's) and blueberries or bacon with tea or coffee. Buck's Fizz always goes with the present opening.

That sounds great but I doubt my kids would have patience to wait while I cooked bacon

I suppose it depends what time you eat Christmas dinner? We have ours about three or four pm, so need to eat something in the morning.

πŸ˜‚ Glitterandgold That's the whole point! You stoke up your boiler so you can wait until late afternoon to have the 'biggie'. I'm impressed that you can go that long as I would definitely not have the energy or the sobriety to get through the presents, singing, games and tears to cook the dinner.

gerrykelly25 sunny101 See we spend all day & evening Christmas eve with family stuffing ourselves & drinking plenty of alcohol so come Christmas morning we are typically not at our best & our boilers are still pretty 'stoked' 🀭. We will tend to pick at left over buffet later in the morning if dinner is taking longer but generally try to serve dinner around 1-2 ish. I never eat breakfast anyways so Christmas is no different. If I did have breakfast I'd probably opt for poached/scrambled egg & smoked salmon tho. πŸ˜‹ In fairness, thinking about it we aren't having our typical family gathering this year so I perhaps should consider a breakfast this year.
