    I don’t know about you, but I like, actually I need, to have my Christmas morning breakfast ready to go on the big day. I don’t have time to assemble a big breakfast after everyone has opened up their presents. To eliminate some stress for myself and to enjoy Christmas morning, I will assemble a breakfast dish the night before. When we get up in the morning, all I have to do is pop it in the oven when we start our gift opening, and breakfast will be ready when we are done!
