Fast, Easy and Tasty Christmas Morning Breakfasts

Okay, it’s not for dinner, but with the holidays here, I am jonesin’ for a breakfast dish that we have been serving in our house for over five years.  Blueberry Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast is rich and divine and best of all, can be made the night before.  I thought that alone deserved its own post.  I only make this for Christmas day morning, so it’s a real special treat in our household. 

However, since this is the time for giving, so I will be posting not one, but  two, great breakfast recipes for relaxing holiday mornings.   Thank you for reading and I wish everyone a wonderful holiday season and a happy, healthy new year!
