Last-Minute Menus for Christmas Breakfast

What are you making for breakfast tomorrow? Do you have a big meal, or do you just snack on Christmas candy and clementines while opening presents? We prefer a full breakfast on Christmas morning, and we've been busy planning out this year's menu.

Here are four menus for breakfast, in case you are still looking for ideas. One is our own -- designed to feed a big family! I come from a large family (eight kids!) and there will be spouses at home with us on Christmas morning for the first time this year. So it's a large crew. I am planning a make-ahead breakfast menu -- the first one on the list below.

Sweet and Savory
Pumpkin cinnamon rolls (at white apples).
Zucchini, potato, and bacon frittata
• Clementines and red grapes
• Coffee and orange juice

Light and Fresh
Lemon cranberry scones
Cranberry jam
Baked Eggs with herbs and a touch of cream
Hot ginger tea

Cinnamon Sweet
Weekend Apple Pancake
Sweet Potatoes and Caramelized Onions
Hot apple cider

Pizza!
Breakfast Pizza - Make the dough the day before and refrigerate. Pull it out the next morning and let everyone top their pizzas with cheese, vegetables, and an egg. Quick and easy
• Seasonal fruit and juice
