    Casseroles

    These hearty breakfast casseroles will keep everyone satisfied for a whole morning of gift-giving.


    Yeast Breads

    For an easy Christmas breakfast, bake yeast breads ahead of time and warm them up Christmas morning. Reheat them, still wrapped in aluminum foil, in a 300 degree F (150 degree C) oven for 30 minutes.


    Quick Breads

    Baking for a family of nibblers? Try a little pumpkin butter with any one of these muffins, scones, or fruit breads.

    • These can be baked and frozen at least a week in advance. Warm them up on Christmas morning in a 300 degree F (150 degree C) oven.
    • Allow 30 minutes or so to warm a frozen coffeecake, and 10 to 20 minutes for muffins.


    Pies

    Pie for breakfast? Oh yeah! Most baked pies can be frozen for up to 6 months. Pumpkin pies should be enjoyed within six weeks.

    A few important notes for making pies to freeze:

    • Brush the bottom crust with melted shortening before filling; bake as directed. When completely cooled, seal well with plastic wrap or foil.
    • To defrost, pop the frozen pie into a preheated 375 degree F (109 degree C) oven for about 45 minutes.


    Christmas Flavors

    Can't get enough eggnog, gingerbread, peppermint, or pumpkin during the holidays? Serve up these delightful seasonal favorites:


    Hot Drinks

    Don't forget the candy cane cocoa!

      Winston, you dear sweet man. People in the north where it's cold deserve the good "bone warming" recipes. Give us a break!!

      Christmas is my favorite time of year! Love baking all those sweets with my lil' kiddo's! Gonna be kind-of depressing when they grow up, though. So not looking forward to that!

      What is the recipe featured on the thumbnail for Christmas breakfast ? It looks like pancakes or french toast w/powdered sugar and pecans. I can't find it at all.
