When we were kids the only day of the year that we didn't have to eat a good breakfast was on Christmas day. Mom would let us eat cookies, cake, pie or whatever we wanted. We could even eat the candy from our stocking. It really kept us from eating so much of that stuff later in the day. Now that the kids are grown up we usually eat ham and eggs, maybe grits, or hash browns, biscuits and fig preserves.

We've done Emeril's savory breakfast pudding which is great because you can perp it a day ahead. My wife has gone vegetarian so last year I subbed sliced sauteed portobelos in the dish and it was tasty. This year it is just 3 of us, I was thinking of NYT no-knead bread with dried fruit in it and maybe a fresh fruit salad.

My daughter's favorite are make-ahead cinnamon rolls that I prepare Christmas Eve and bake Christmas morning - I would like to change it up but she will not hear of it!

Last week's Parade magazine had recipes for French Bread Pudding and Mulled Pears and Apples. DH doesn't like pears, so we'll do apples and canteloupe, and I'm going to add Giada's Amaretto Cream Sauce to the bread pudding, substituting Gran Marnier for the amaretto. A side of breakfast sausage and Hairy Navels will complete the meal (not crazy about the name, but the recipe sounds great ).

If you have a health food store they will probably have them

I've changed my mind. We're having Christmas breakfast with you!

Panettone French toast. It's become a recent tradition here and the recipe is in the Wms Sonoma Christmas book. Yummy, with orange zest.

You're more than welcome to come over for breakfast, the more the merrier. I love cooking for a crowd especially my family. They love to eat and this is one of their favorite breakfasts. I only do this once a year so this your chance.

We will have whatever is fast and available to grab. Or we might go with semi-fast and have pancakes or French toast, since we still have plenty of syrup from our visit to Vermont.

Hey Barbara, how about you come to my house then we'll BOTH go to Mama's.
