    Christmas breakfast-Ideas please 1st Sep 06 at 3:20 PM
    Is there anything i could put in the slow cooker overnight for xmas day breakfast?

    One thing i always make the kids do before we see if santa has been, is have some breakfast, this used to be sat on the stairs at our old house as you couldnt get to the kitchen without going through the main room.

    But now we have a dinning room i really would like us all to sit down and enjoy a yummy breakfast before all hell breaks lose ( 4 kids under 10) LOL, and the kids start to eat hundreds of chocolate bars!!!

    Any ideas would be great, as i want to set the table with one present for each person at breakfast time, and enjoy something easy but nice.

    Porridge? I don't know if you can do that in a SC, but it's quick to do anyway. Then hopefully, they'll be too full to gorge on chocolate bars for at least a couple of hours!

    THis is VERY forward planning. THere was a recipe for breakfast casserole in the SC which was like a coronary in a dish, but did taste nice, sausages, eggs, cheese I think, and bread and probably some other stuff. Mine turned out like a savoury 'eat-me-if-you-dare-' bread pudding. Very naughty but very nice.
    I would opt for fruit and yoghurt considering the excesses to be indulged in later...

    We all love our boiled eggs and they are especially nice with our hm bread now! You could have scrambled eggs with something nice such as sausage or bacon or beans. Quick and tasty!

    There is a way to do it in the SC which involves wrapping bacon into rolls and standing those up in the SC, add sausages and tomatoes, cook overnight on low (remembering to drain off all the fat/juices before serving).

    Porridge would be another SC option.

    We go for croissant as our Christmas breakfast by order of my youngest - mainly because they are so quick to heat from frozen in the oven giving him more time to get to the nitty gritty of the morning

    We usually have croissants and hot chocolate for breakfast on Christmas morning. I had a quick look on google and there are some slow cooker breakfast recipe ideas here and here.

    Chocolate for us too, particularly as my two usually get up about 5am on Christmas morning!

    Ooo I'm getting all excited now, I do love Christmas. Might have to watch Love Actually later - my ultimate fave Christmas movie.

    I always make bacon rolls on Xmas eve (turkey rashers for non red meat eating DD) adding brown or tomato sauce for each individual, which we eat cold. This was something my mother did when I was a child. Now we have micrwaves and part baked rolls and I could do them on the morning but 'NO' they cry, it's traditional that's what we have !!
    When I recently went to collect daughter from Gatwick after a month in peru she e-mailed (2nd time in whole trip) from Lima as she set off saying 'please bring me turkey rolls to the airport like you do at Christmas, I've been craving them!!'
    Be careful what you do as it may become part of your family folklore!

    Thanks everyone, kids dont like croissants tried that one before, but may just settle for cereal and toast and jam. Love the buzz fizz idea, i tend to have baileys with xmas breakfast LOL.

    Just love the idea of seeing them so exited for 10 mins on xmas morning before the wrapping paper flies and we start working out how to play their new games ect lol

    We have egg and bacon muffins Christmas morning and croissants/pain au chocolate on Boxing Day.

    I don't buy chocolatey cereals, we are weetabix fiends in this house, but thought about buying my little boy one of those individual one serving boxes of Coco Pops or something similar to go in his stocking. Just the one mind as I'm a mean mum!

    Wahey!

    We used to wake up early and go into nan & grandads room. We weren't allowed to do anything until Grandad had had his mug of tea. Nan used to buy a special box of biscuits to go with our mugs of tea and that was our christmas breakfast.

    Obviously I've carried on this very special tradition

    Followed by a selection box or 6

    I only cook the one meal too

    ooooooo, I'm just like Fizz head - I'm all excited now thinking about Christmas. I LOVE it. I hope Santa remembers what a good girl I've been this year.
