Christmas Breakfast

Anyone got any ideas for a wonderful Christmas Breakfast?

Growing up near Melton Mowbray we always had pork pie ( sometimes home-made ) but OH thinks it strange

Many people have a traditional english fry-up but I don't want to spoil lunch

Guess it will just be croissants

I do home-made croissants. They are just too much of a palaver for making on anything other than a special day, they are gorgeous and can be started on Christmas Eve. Recipe in Elizabeth David's bread book.

Kateuk makes things at http://www.etsy.com/shop/finkstuff and sometimes she does this too http://www54paintings.blogspot.com/ and also this http://finkstuff.weebly.com/

Home-made croissants for me too. Used to just be with hot chocolate and boiled eggs too. Usually constitutes my hubby's second breakfast as he can't last until brunchtime Pint

It's intriguing that home made croissants seem to be the order of the day. Very good indeed.

I love scrambled egg with smoked salmon. That is a really indulgent and tasty treat.

Sorry, Lovage, I can eat almost anything for breakfast but a pork pie is not on my radar. Horses for courses, I guess.

Our Christmas lunch this year starts at approx 12:30 in a local hotel, thanks to Fiona's mum, so not much time for breakfast unless we can do it really early. But I do want to try the ED recipe that S.O.L mentioned.

IF I can get up early enough.

Never knowingly underfed

Lol so did I but I also had croissants baked that morning – I did cheat and made them the night before and left them in the fridge to rise. My daughter is coming tomorrow having been at her boyfriend's mum's for Christmas and put in a special request for croissants because she missed them. Awww!

The worst thing about muffins is that they don't keep for very long.  Oh, and the calories, of course.Laugh

Thanks very much for the welcome - what a friendly place!  I'm jmc296 on the blog - is there any way I can change that to 'Joy'?

Hi, Toffeeapple, thanks for the welcome! 

Muffins (I mean the bun type, not the round flat crumpet type) are just about the easiest thing in the world to make.  I love them!

The American sort you mean?  Well done anyway, I haven't baked anything for years though I used to do this sort of thing -
