Christmas Breakfast

Most Christmas morns we make breakfast before we open gifts. It's different each year - just whatever our taste buds dictate. Sometimes toast and coffee and other times, it's a large breakfast. This year I was leaning toward *gourmet.*  Hot biscuits with Vermont butter and Pineapple Vanilla Preserves, smoked thick-sliced bacon and ham from Dean and Delucas. A spinach-mushroom quiche accompanied with fresh squeeze orange juice and Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee.  
Oh....sorry, let me answer the phone. "Hello? What??? The *HOT* sign is on at Krispy Kreme? Are you sure? When did it come on? Just NOW? I'm there!"  Hey, the sign is red and green, which just screams *Christmas* to us!  LOL!!  Did you have breakfast on Christmas morning or not?

I'd be sold on the Krispy Kremes too since you cant get them here and I LOVE them!

But bacon and all that other stuff sounds pretty good too - so long as someone else is cooking!

I had ham, toast and eggs and it was delicious.

Hope your Christmas was fabulous my friend.

All that food look delicious. Especially those do nuts.

I had a mango strawberry smoothie with Greek yogurt and ground flax seed. Really very good.

Deborah said...

Sounds and looks delicious Janean!
My husband cooks breakfast Christmas morning...its usually my home-made butter-pecan rolls that I baked on Christmas Eve, and scrambled eggs, fried, ham, bacon and brown-sugar sausage and home-made cut up fried potatoes.
I just had one of the rolls with my coffee as Im typing lol
Love to you this "day after Christmas". I'm off to work for 9:00 a.m. this morning.
Happy Holidays hun!

With all my heart...Deborah xoxo

Good Morning Janean!
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I am betting that wonderful breakfast was just scrumptious!!


Robin@DecoratingTennisGirl said...

Oh Janean,
You ARE a girl after my own heart! I have crossed three lanes of traffic in .2 seconds to get to Krispy Kreme, when the hot sign is on!!!
Hope you had a Very Merry Christmas!
Much love...

Janean, I would have chosen the KK's, too!!! Breakfast is a . . . ummmm, well, it's just weird around here! Hubby gets up really early, and breakfast to him is a cup of coffee and a 'breakfast bar' or something (ANYTHING) sweet! Breakfast to me is a big country breakfast! So, Mama and I, while we wanted biscuits and gravy, had grits and sausage. Hank the turkey was in the oven, so biscuits were out of the question! Merry Christmas, Janean and family!!! Becky G. in GA

Sarah said...

Krispy Kremes sound like a great idea!

Merry, Merry! ~ Sarah

Morning Janean!

We always have a big Christmas brunch...and always have too many leftovers and too much to eat!

KrispyKremes? Be still my beating heart! Ours closed here about two years ago...sigh...Could you put one close to the screen so I could just get a whiff? xxoo Diana

kpaints said...

I had a blueberry/raspberry protein smoothie...easy and light start to the heavy eating day. That quiche sure looks yummy! But too much work for just one.

Farm Girl said...

Me too, I cook something different every year, this year is was scrambled eggs with peppers and mushrooms and chopped ham. With biscuits and gravy. It was yummy.
With lots of coffee.

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas.

Sharon said...

Hi, your breakfast looked so good, we had a nice brunch while looking at the snow fall in S.C. which in not a sight that is seen here very often. We had a white Christmas. Have a wonderful New Year.


Hi Janean! I'm slowly getting back to bloglandia and so happy to visit your neck o' the woods. Breakfast yesterday? Nah. Straight to cookie baking, and then sampling. Does that count as breakfast? Hope your new year is sweet as Christmas! ~ Angela

Debby@Just Breathe said...

They are the best! Sometimes I do a breakfast but we didn't gather until noon. We had potato soup and other snacks for lunch. It was a glorious day.

raggygirlvintage said...

Sounds delish! We're still working on leftovers but I think a brunch is definitely in the plans!

Dolores said...

I'm on an eating binge, all food sounds good to me.... but the breakfast you mentioned sounds outstanding!!!!

I'm hoping to lose some of the extra pounds come next year......

Rita said...

We too have breakfast first, but not because our grandsons want to, ha! My son told my grandson, "You have to have breakfast so you'll have plenty of muscles to open those presents." He said, "I've already got muscles, so can I open them?" Oh for the enthusiasm of children! Hope your Christmas was wonderful! You made mine special!

Florence said...

Stone cut oatmeal was on my menu for breakfast Christmas morning, I must say, yours looked mighty fine! Florence

Bernie said...

We had thick slices of French Toast with maple syrup and thick slices of Canadian bacon...it was delicious......:-)Hugs

Tanna at The Brick Street Bungalow said...

Oh, Janean, your Christmas breakfast looks mighty tasty... hot donuts! Yea!

We have breakfast caserole every Christmas morning... the rest of the menu may change, but that stays the same. We had Paula Dean's Gorilla Bread this year, which was a big hit! You can't go wrong in this house with butter, sugar and nuts! LOL! Hope you have a Happy New Year!

Mari said...

Christmas day breakfast is the best one of the year! The hot cocoa with marshmallows on top is our favorite.

Hope you continue to have a Merry Christmas week!

Sharon said...

I am with you a KK sure does sound so good.
We just had coffee and toast, since we were going to have a big dinner.
have a great day.

Betsy said...

You made me so hungry. It all sounds so good to me.
Yes, I had breakfast for the family and four guests, but kept it really simple since it was an "eat and run" morning. Just bagels, cream cheese, fruit, and banana bread. We even had leftovers.

Happy New Year Greetings from Farmhouse Kitchen.

Nancy said...

We had a fabulous pre-gift breakfast. The highlights were my son's cheesy scrambled eggs and my husband's crumbly coffee cake.

Have a Happy New Year!

Pondside said...

Mmmmmm - none of those doughnuts here, but I remember having them, once, on a trip south. They were sinfully delicious!
Our Christmas breakfast is nearly non-existent. On Christmas Eve I set out a pan of Monkey Bread to rise by the fire (one year the dog ate the raw dough!...now we close him in our bedroom!) and in the morning I pop them in the oven first thing so that we can all enjoy hot Cinnamon buns and coffee and milk.

Elizabeth said...

Hi Janean,
I just found your blog and so glad I did. I love it! Hot Krispy Kremes are one of my favorite things! I plan to take my daughter to the Nutcracker Ballet next year!
Happy New Year! So glad I found you. I will be back!

Please, may I have some more??? It could be biscuts, or donuts, bring on the meat or just toast (with a stick of butter)... :D Breakfast on Christmas mornings are a favorite in our household... It seems to indicate rest and conversation which Rich & I find enjoyable. From gourmet to down-home Texas style (those big holes in backyards filled with briskets) or Georgian taste buds (grits & gravy), it is sure to be a meal with plenty to talk about...
Love you girlfriend!
