There is nothing like a yummy and delicious Christmas breakfast on Christmas day! I remember when I was young, my mom would make a breakfast casserole with cream cheese, french toast bake, cinnamon rolls, eggs benedict with cheese, sausage and more!
We have a huge family, so cooking Christmas breakfast was always a huge deal in my home growing up and we always had a lot of food that we would later eat as Christmas dinner because there would be so much left over!
We always had our Christmas dinner on Christmas Eve, so Christmas was just the huge breakfast/brunch and dinner was always leftovers! It is no wonder I love making breakfast for dinner at least once a week!
My mom would slave over the stove all of Christmas Eve, baking delicious Christmas Cookies, a yummy Sweet Potato dish, homemade bread, and SO much more! She sure knows how to bake and cook that is for sure! And, she always uses her slow cooker to create the gravy and potatoes!! YUM!!!
Today, I have a great Christmas Breakfast Recipe for you called ‘Breakfast Yule Log‘ and boy does it look delish! All of my favorite foods are included! I would definitely add a scrumptious coffee cake to the menu. That would round this yummy Christmas Breakfast out really nicely!
