When I was a little kid, breakfast was the last thing on my mind when I woke up on Christmas morning. But that being said, breakfast was always part of our family’s Christmas tradition. Even though I never thought about breakfast when I was younger, breakfast is one of the things I look back fondly on now that I am older. I remember that my brother and I had to wait until both of my parents woke up in order to be let downstairs to open our presents. My dad would stay in the family room while my brother and I opened the gifts Santa gave us while my mom went into the kitchen to cook us a delicious Christmas-themed breakfast. After us little ones were done making a mess of the house, the entire family would crowd in to the kitchen to eat the wonderful meal that my mom had made for us.
Like the rest of the holiday itself, the breakfast would always be decadent and over-the-top. However, Christmas is a great time of the year to start eating healthier. To help you with that we have collected five of the tastiest and fruitiest Christmas breakfast ideas that are not only good for your taste buds, but for your waistline as well.
