When it comes to holiday mornings things are hectic and crazy and no one wants to think about breakfast.  On Thanksgiving you are more worried about making sure the turkey is done, the side dishes and desserts are made, and the table is set.  On Christmas, heck you gotta see what Santa brought.  No one wants to really think about breakfast, but you will have a hungry family.  So here are some ideas for some easy breakfast you don't have to think to hard about.


Crockpot Breakfast Casserole

1 lb of sausage - (the flavor is up to you)

1-4 c bag of shredded cheese

1 big bag of frozen has browns

1 small onion chopped

1 green pepper chopped

1 dz large eggs

1 c milk

Brown the sausage and drain the grease, set aside.  Mix all 12 eggs with the cup of milk with a whisk.  Add salt and pepper to taste.   In the crockpots put in the hash browns, onion, peppers and bag of cheese.  Top with sausage, then add milk.

Cook on low for 6-8 hours.  When you wake up! Voila! breakfast is ready.

Since it is the holidays then if you are like me you have a ton of banana bread around.  I make so much banana bread.  So if you are looking for a quick and easy breakfast grab a loaf of your banana bread and make some french toast.

Banana Bread French Toast

1 loaf of banana bread sliced

4 eggs

1 t vanilla

1/2 t cinnamon

3 T of milk

Whisk the eggs, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla in a bowl.  Dip each slice of banana bread in the egg, and cook on a hot griddle or pan on both sides til done.

Top with your favorite syrup, bananas or even whipped cream.

One of our holiday traditions is sausage balls.  We have them for breakfast for Thanksgiving and Christmas.  We usually end up cooking more than one recipe because they are so easy and good.  They are good hot or cold.

Sausage Balls

1 c Bisquik

1 lb sausage ( you choose the flavor)

2 cups shredded cheese

1 T milk.

Preheat oven to 350

Mix ingredients together.  I just usually throw it all in the bowl and stick my hands in squishing it all together.  Once mixed, take the mixture and roll them into small balls.

Place on a greased cookie sheet, and bake in the oven for 20-25 minutes.

Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.  Reheat in the microwave.

*Note* I added 1/2 block of cream cheese to the mixture one year.  It was good, just make sure you use the spicy breakfast sausage.

Monkey Bread

3 cans of Biscuits

1 cup white sugar

2 t Cinnamon

1 stick butter

1 cup brown sugar packed

Preheat the oven to 350

Mix the cinnamon and sugar in a bowl.  Quarter each biscuit and cover each piece in cinnamon and sugar.  Then place each piece into a greased bundt cake pan. Melt the butter and sugar in a small sauce pan.  Once melted pour over the biscuits then cook in the oven for 25 minutes.
