We are planning on sausage, bacon, biscuits...ya know. but anyone know of anything unique for breakfast..maybe a hashbrown casserole, some kind of fancy jam i can make? any ideas?

  • I have been looking up strata recipes. I have never made it or had it before, I just cant decide if I want it to be a sweet strata like fruit, or hearty like sausage...

    1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
    1 doz. eggs
    2 c. milk

    Cut bread into cubes and place 1/2 in 9 x 14 inch casserole dish. Cube cream cheese and put on top of bread, add remaining bread. Whip eggs, milk and syrup together; pour over entire area. Cover with plastic and let sit overnight in refrigerator. Remove plastic for baking. Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Add additional syrup if desired.

  • To take the stress off myself on Christmas morning, I always go place a Panera Bread order for some breakfast goodies (i.e. bagels, fruit, danish, et cetera) and pick it up on Christmas Eve. Then in the morning, we spread it out on the table and while we open some gifts, we just get up here and there to pick up something to nibble on!

  • We do stratta. It is a tradition. The really great thing is that you do it ahead. So you are free on Christmas morning. All you do is pop it in the oven and go about your activities.
