Christmas Breakfast

This is the only meal of the day that we stick to a great English tradition from the county of Leicestershire.

Its simple but full of taste, Melton Mowbray style home made pork pie, Colston Basset Stilton Cheese, washed down with a good Port wine.


What do you eat for Chrimbo breakfast.

bolas, please describe the pork pie you'd mentioned. it has a proper name, so it should be good.

this year, i'm sneaking out of work at 6am to be home with camera ready before the family wakes up.

brekkie will probably be eggs over easy, home fried spuds, toast, fried slices of polish style cured pork tenderloin, polish rye bread, farmer's cheese, and rugelach.

Tom I will try, you make hot water crust pastry by boiling lard and water then pour it into plain flour, work into a stiff paste, then you have to free hand a case the shape and depth of a coffee mug (as the pastry cools it is like play dough) reserving a piece for the lid.
Hand chop meaty belly pork into small cubes and mix in some onions that have been softened in butter, add lots of ground black pepper and a few pinches of salt. Pack carefully into your pastry case, put on the lid with a hole in it, bake in a moderate oven for about 90 mins then remove and egg wash, place back in the oven for another 30 mins.

Let it cool, pour in some stock made with pigs trotters that will set inside and make the meat moist. Leave in the fridge for 24 hrs to mature.

I cant find a pic these are Gala Pork pies, you put a row of boiled eggs in the middle of the meat before baking, you can only do this using tins.

I eat two types of polish smoked pork, one is hot smoked, the other is cold smoked tenderloin which I eat raw. I make polish farmers goats cheese.

Man that sounds good!

In our house our daughter is required to eat the fruit and nuts that she finds in her Christmas stocking before opening any presents. Of course there are stocking stuffers to keep her occupied and happy until the main event. In the mean time dh and I have time to get a hot cup of coffee and some kind of breeakfast sandwich or maybe a pastry depending how ambitious I am feeling that morning. I would love to make a big breakfast including popovers with fresh jam and maybe a Christmas egg casserole for breakfast but I have learned from years past, that just doesn't work for us.

Christmas starts at about 5am when the kids wake up.
A cup of coffee is a lucky thing.I will get some bagels for the aftermath. We are hosting Christmas Dinner this year so better to stay hungry for us.

I love Christmas breakfast! I'm usually up really late the night before making the cardamom braid (Finnish Nissua) and we munch on that with jam while I get a larger breakfast prepared. For the past 2 years I have done a breakfast pizza, baked french toast casserole and mixed fruit. The french toast casserole is assembled the night before and the pizza comes together pretty quickly so they are ideal dishes for dealing with all the other craziness that is Christmas.

For some reason we never really developed a Christmas breakfast tradition. I guess our tradition is that we always slept late on Christmas (one of the few days my mom and dad could sleep late) and then just had whatever we felt like having. However, eggnog (non-alcoholic) is usually part of our Christmas morning.
