Christmas morning has always been my favorite. Seeing the joy of the holiday through my little boy’s eyes was precious. Now that the boys are older and they are not up at the crack of dawn, our Christmas mornings are different than they were when I had little boys. It is still filled with joy; it’s just different! These days, my husband and I are usually up before them! We put the coffee on and start cooking the first round of food.
Our house is an open house for the day. We have people coming and going, stopping in for a bite or two and some gifts, then heading off to see their other family members. Its a good day of relaxing and grazing through the day with music or movies on in the background.
Our Christmas food is just snacks all day. Monkey bread in the morning with coffee, some type of egg casserole or french toast bake with bacon and sausage up next. For “lunch” it’s a crescent ring with Italian meats and cheeses and then bacon cheeseburger sliders and desserts around “dinner” time.
Having a plan in place is important to me. I wrote about this in the post, How To Be Ready For Christmas By December First. As of today, the middle of December, I am (almost) right on track. December first is the goal, but it doesn’t always go as planned. I can say that next week, I plan on taking it easy and enjoying some holiday cheer!
Low Carb Christmas!?
We (meaning my husband and me) have cut back on refined carbs, so I am sure Christmas foods will look a little different this year. I will still make the monkey Bread because that is a definite favorite but might also add some other ideas. I found a recipe for sausage bites that are low in carbs. These might be a great addition as well as many other great egg dishes featured in this list.
Sometimes it is nice to try something a little bit different, and if you are on a hunt for some new recipes, this is the list for you. I am hoping to make your Christmas morning go a little smoother!
This year, I wanted to share with you a whole bunch of great choices for frugal breakfast (or all day) ideas from some of my friends!
There are 70 different recipes, so I am sure you will find something that you love.
