These are great ideas, especially for Christmas morning breakfast. Really liked the french toast recipe the best. Might have to pin it my recipe board. =)

Some of these sound really good. I never eat a tradition breakfast. I'm never hungry in the morning.

I'm never sure what items are okay to make ahead of time, so I often cram and cook everything right before and wish I had a much larger stove. I'd definitely love to try the Cinnamon-Sugar Topped French Toast Casserole.

I hope you enjoy this casserole! Nettie
