What are you making for Christmas breakfast?
What? You don’t know yet!
Why not try these Gingerbread Waffles!
Isn’t Christmas morning the best? Staying in your pajamas, opening presents, sipping coffee and digging in to a feast of breakfast specialties?! Doesn’t get better than that!
There was a time when gingerbread was reserved only for cookies, but it has stepped up it’s game in the food world over the past few years. It hasn’t caught on quite as hard as the pumpkin spice movement, but Starbucks has given it a latte which, in the food fad world, means you have made it.
Christmas has so many known and common traditions, like getting a Christmas tree, decorating it, hanging stockings above the fireplace, SANTA, and of course Rudolph. But there are no hard and fast rules about what to eat on Christmas. Sure, there are themes or suggestions like COOKIES, anything peppermint, eggnog, comfort foods, home cooking, etc… But it’s not like Thanksgiving where it is expected that you WILL eat turkey, mashed potatoes and stuffing. Which means the possibilities are endless for your Christmas menu!
This can be fun or frustrating depending on how you look at it. So, here I am helping you narrow down your options for Christmas breakfast! Why not surprise everyone with this Christmas twist on a classic breakfast food!
