What Is Your Traditional Christmas Morning Breakfast?

Reader Survey

Christmas morning is often a time of family ritual and tradition. It usually involves opening gifts or stockings, but it can also be a trip to church or a hike in the hills or a visit to a friend or relative's house. And, of course, there's also the food. Many families have a special Christmas morning breakfast, something only consumed on that particular morning. It can be anything from a fancy buffet to an overnight casserole that bakes while the presents are opened. Sometimes it's a pan of from-scratch cinnamon rolls or your father's special waffles.
