Waking up to a delicious breakfast on Christmas morning is a great tradition for most of us. With all the excitement in a house full of children, friends and family, we like to make it easy and stress free. Let guests and kids pick what they want to eat and when with a made-ahead breakfast buffet.
We recommend setting the coffee pot the night before and starting the most anticipated day of the year by simply warming up your made-ahead breakfast favorites. The kids can help get everything prepped the day before so you all can enjoy more quality time together. Linger over coffee, mimosas and conversation longer. That’s what the holidays are all about.
Four easy ideas for a healthy, simple and homemade breakfast buffet:
1- Homemade Bake-Ahead Favorites
Fresh-baked anything is the perfect addition to a breakfast buffet…Byrd Mill’s muffins and scones are simple enough to make ahead with kids. To reheat them in the morning, wrap in foil and place them into a 325° oven for 10-15 minutes.
2- Pre-made Waffles and Pancakes
Make your batter the night before and simply pour your silver dollar sized cakes on a big griddle or waffle iron. And voila, you’ll have these cooked up in no time.
3- Peanut yogurt dip with apples and pears
This make-ahead 4-ingredient dip is a great way get energized while adding a punch of protein and flavor to your morning. It’s a great addition to the breakfast buffet!
2 ounces of your favorite Greek Yogurt
2 heaping tablespoons of your favorite Byrd Mill Peanut Flour
2 tablespoons maple syrup
½ teaspoon of cinnamon
Mix all ingredients the night before. Wash fruits and prepare, but chop those in the morning to avoid discoloration.
4- Yogurt Sundaes
Use your favorite yogurt as a base and serve in small bowls.
Toppings should be self-serve and could include: fresh and dried fruits, granola, walnuts, almonds, holiday colored sprinkles and even a few chocolate chips.
