Bring the Holiday Cheer with Christmas Morning-Worthy Breakfasts
Whip up a memorable breakfast in under an hour.
Gift-giving aside, Christmas morning calls for something special -- of something warm and delicious, coming out of the oven or sizzling on the stove for everyone to enjoy. If you missed out on the prep for making an overnight casserole, these easy recipes are here to help you make sweet (or savory!) breakfast memories in under an hour.
There's something wonderful about watching pancake batter (the magic is in the whipped egg whites so make sure to fold them in gently) rise up into these adorable fluffed up pancakes, and something even better about biting into them. Break out your mixer to get it on the table in just 40 minutes.
If you're willing to go the distance (a full hour in this case), you can add layers of decadent flavor to french toast with a Mexican hot chocolate stuffing, chocolate-maple ganache and cinnamon-flavored whipped cream.
While classic cinnamon buns are absolutely a treat worth waiting for, these pancakes are perfect for sating everyone's cinnamon and sugar cravings when you're short on time. Pipe a tasty and perfectly shaped cinnamon swirl onto the pancakes as they cook and top with a drizzle of icing on the plate.
As much as we love the traditionally sweet dish (try Melissa d’Arabian’s recipe), we think this savory take hits all the right notes with a filling of breakfast sausage, mushrooms and melty cheese.
Although toad-in-the-hole is sometimes just another of the many names we have for egg-in-a-hole, it's also a classic English breakfast dish made with sausage in Yorkshire pudding batter.
If you find your breakfast crowd always fighting over the hash browns, make it the main event with this easy skillet dish.
