Yesterday I mentioned how I'm not doing much cooking this week, so I'm sharing a few favorite recipes before I take off for my sister's house where I'll be spoiling these kids and probably indulging in some not exactly South Beach diet friendly Christmas food. Yesterday I suggested five of my favorite appetizers for holiday parties, and today I'm going to recommend five favorite breakast options that I think would be perfect for Christmas morning, If your family likes Mexican food, I bet they'd enjoy Mexican Baked Eggs with Black Beans, Tomatoes, Green Chiles, and Cilantro after they open their presents. You can make it in one large dish if you don't have individual casseroles.
One of my perennial favorites for breakfast is this Broccoli Cheese Breakfast Casserole, which reminds me of a dish my Grandmother Denny used to make when I was a kid.
You may not have fresh chives, but thinly sliced green onions will make a good substitute for this Asparagus and Fresh Mozzarella Frittata with Parmesan and Chives.
I love turkey Italian sausage so I don't know why it took me so long to think of using it in a breakfast casserole, but this Breakfast Casserole with Sweet Italian Sausage, Mushrooms, and Cheese was definitely a keeper.
Finally, if you're cooking Christmas breakfast for adults or kids who are adventurous eaters, you can't go wrong with Tuscan Baked Eggs with Tomatoes, Red Onion, Garlic, Parmesan, and Herbs.
