    Sorry to disappoint you but I don't think you can beat freshly squeezed orange juice, crispy bacon on soft white bread spread with butter and a big mug of tea to set you up for xmas day!

    That's our brekkie too. :D

    French toast; now there's a thought.

    We'll be in France so it will probably be croissant, pain raison or pain chocolat, depending on what we buy the day before in the bakers, although in some areas the bakers open on Christmas morning so if we're in one of those areas we'll obviously buy fresh!

    I've been deliberating this year. We might have no starter for the makin meal....its just DH and I, which is rare. And we eat late afternoon as a sort of hybrid lunch supper, after the animals have been put away for the day but before a late walk around. So breakfast is still a big deal here, being one of two adult meals.

    This year I am thinking of making a spiced caramelised orange salad to serve with home made waffles which we could eat after 'le cake' a cheese and ham cake, which we can eat in thin slices with some stuff like chicory, celery or some hot veg, like stewed tomatoes and or some of the cristmas ham.

    I fancy something more special tbh, and vegetarian and hot, but I'm struggling and it seems silly to tie oneself in knots over breakfast on Christmas Day!
  • We always have the same breakies - croissants filled with scrambled egg and bacon washed down by bucks fizz - tried pancakes with maple syrup and bacon one year but it didnt feel christmassy! Traditions are traditions...

  • Well, after reading this thread, I've decided on a continental breakfast and so we'll be having a selection of croissants/pain au chocolat/rolls with homecooked sliced ham, cheese and jams. With orange juice and tea/coffee. I'm dead excited now!:j

    When the children were small they had something from their chocolate selection boxes while we just had toast and marmalade. Some years later when we had a residential home the residents had their usual breakfast and at 11.30am we had a cocktail morning for families & friends with canapes etc, so no time for our breakfast. Nowadays I'm back to toast or cereal as I know my DD will make a delicious lunch and I want to be able to do it justice :)
