With young children in the house, you don’t usually get much of a Christmas morning breakfast. Hubby and I usually just grab a cup of coffee and munch on a few cookies while we open presents. Once things have settled down a bit, I make a big frittata that we have as a late breakfast, early lunch (I guess you could call it a brunch). It keeps us full until an early Christmas dinner with our extended family and leaves plenty of time to enjoy Christmas.
You can precook your bacon the day before, or buy one of the new precooked bacon packs. They are a little pricy compared to regular bacon, but to me it’s worth the extra time with my family on Christmas morning. Or just fry it up the day before, wrap it in paper towels and store it in the fridge until you’re ready to use it.
