Mangia Mondays:: Christmas Breakfast Ideas!


Welcome to Mangia Mondays, the foodie blog hop that I co-host with Kristin of Delightfully Dowling....
who just announced she is baking a little bun in the oven!!
Congrats Kristin and Mr. Delightfully Dowling!!  I am so excited for you on your little "cupcake"!

We are thrilled to bits that so many of you participate each week.  If you are planning what to make for breakfast on Christmas morning, look no further than these recipes that were linked up last week!

Country Ham Stuffed Biscuits from Crystal, aka Mrs. Happy Homemaker - how good do these look???

This Potato Tart with Bacon, Gruyere and Rosemary from Heather from Hezzi-D's Books and Cooks would make a delicious and impressive Christmas morning breakfast, wouldn't it?  Did I mention all that goodness is baked in a pie crust???

How about homemade donuts for your kiddos (or kids-at-heart?!)  Thank you to Sarah at Fantastical Sharing of Recipes for sharing these Funfetti Cake Donuts that are glazed, frosted and sprinkled!  My kids would be in heaven if I made these for Christmas morning!

If you are looking for a healthy choice to offer Christmas morning, how about yogurt, fruit and this delicious homemade Soaked Granola Cereal from Paula and Travis at Whole Intentions?  I eat granola over yogurt almost every morning and have always wanted to make my own!  This would also make a lovely Christmas gift.

Last Christmas morning I made these Gentlemen's Casseroles from Southern Living and everyone enjoyed them.  My kids are big fans of puff pastry and the cheese sauce (that you can make ahead - and you can also substitute shredded cheddar for the gruyere) made my hubby, Mark, swoon.  I highly recommend them for a Christmas-morning-worthy breakfast!

One more thing, not breakfast-related - did you happen to see my Pretzel Fudge recipe I posted last week?

It didn't last long in my house, but Mark wants you all to know that you should eat it up right quick because, although I told you that fudge stays fresh for 2-3 weeks if refrigerated, the pretzels do soften up and you lose that wonderful crunch that makes the sweet fudge and the salty pretzels so tantalizing!

Happy Christmas week my lovelies!

Lisa - Mark is so right on the pretzels in the fudge getting soft after a couple of days. Sorry I didn't tell you that in my original post! Going back and adding an 'editorial note' now. Have a very merry Christmas!!
