Ten of My Favorite Breakfasts…Just Kidding. Eleven.

Budget Gourmet Mom's 10 Fave Christmas Breakfasts

Breakfast on Christmas is as important as dinner on Thanksgiving for me.  It is THE meal of the day…as in we eat it ALL day.  We need the energy to maneuver through all of the torn paper, ribbon strewn about the room, and piles of legos that are now all over your carpet because the kids couldn’t possibly wait to open the box in their bedroom where all of those toys actually belong and now you are worried about stepping on them and breaking a leg.  Which is why breakfast is so important.

These are ten, er, eleven of my favorite breakfasts.  Some of them are quick.  Others take some time. While a few can be made ahead of time, frozen, and reheated.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to you all!

Breakfast Pockets   {make ahead and freeze}
Pound Cake Sticky Buns  {easy}
Nutella Swirl Rolls {easy and fast}

Buttermilk Syrup with French Toast  {fast and easy}

And number 11….
