Christmas Morning Recipes

Christmas morning is filled with opening presents, figuring out our new gifts, watching Christmas shows and spending time with family!  So sometimes breakfast is put on the back burner! So this year we are going to take out the fuss and go to make ahead breakfast items that each family member can grab and go!  My dad and brother want to eat as soon as they get up but my mom and I like to eat a little later.  This way everyone can get their breakfast whenever they like!

I recently did this Midday Live segment with Laura Rogers on WBKO 13 Television about the recipes I’m going to highlight:  Muffin Tin Omellettes, Festive Monkey Bread, and Warm Apple Pie Drink.

I assumed everyone knew how to make Monkey Bread so I did not show how to in the segment.  Yet afterward, I found that many had never made it before so here is how I did it!

  • 1 (8 ounce) tube biscuits
  • 1/3 cup sugar 
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup butter 
  • 1/6 cup brown sugar
  • 1 can green color mist(optional)
  • 1 can red frosting(optional)

Grease a bundt pan and Preheat oven to 350 degrees.                                                                   

Cut each biscuit into fourths.                                                                                                                Combine sugar and cinnamon and dip each biscuit into cover it.                                                    Then place into greased bundt pan.                                                                                                            Once all biscuits are covered, place remaining cinnamon sugar in a medium saucepan with butter and brown sugar. Bring to a boil and pour over biscuits. Bake for 10-12 minutes.                          Once out of the oven let cool for 5-10 minutes.

OPTIONAL Get green color mist and spray until fully green. Pipe a ribbon with the red frosting on it to look like a wreath. Enjoy!

Note: If you do spray the color mist be in a well-ventilated area. If you don’t it will get very misty! If you don’t have such area, spray in small spurts.

I hope everyone has a Merry Christmas and if you try one of these recipes Christmas morning, let me know!

  2. Greetings from Carolina! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided to check out your blog on my iphone during lunch break. I love the information you provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home. I’m surprised at how fast your blog loaded on my mobile .. I’m not even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyhow, fantastic site!
