On Christmas morning we know it’s going to be hard to compete with whatever Santa — or “Santa” — leaves under the tree for your family. That being said, nothing will complete the picture of joy better than a great breakfast. Here are some hearty, decadent options from our Recipe Finder:
• Baked Apple, Smoked Turkey and Cheddar Strata. This kid-friendly dish can be assembled a day in advance and popped into the oven while everyone is tearing open their presents.
• Baked French Toast With Strawberry Sauce. You’ll never go for frozen strawberries in syrup again once you try this sauce.
• Cinnamon Sugar Pancakes. Customize these pancakes with the fruit of your choice.
• Coca-Cola Biscuits. You won’t know why you’re addicted to these, but you will be.
• Ginger and Almond Scones. Feed a crowd easily if you scale up this foolproof recipe.
• Granny's Christmas Coffee Cake. One family’s beloved recipe could become a favorite of yours too.
• New Orleans Black Muffins. Dark blackstrap molasses is crucial for these moist muffins.
• Waffles of Many Flours and Meals. Don’t be daunted by the ingredient list. The variety is worth it.
