Christmas Breakfast

Christmas morning was all about gathering around the Christmas tree with the family!

Toothpicks inserted into a plastic foam cone made a sweet little Christmas tree covered with doughnut holes.

Fresh fruit and Christmas morning cups offered sweet and savory treats. Joe's Christmas morning must-have is his mother's sausage pinwheels. To make these, roll out a can of biscuit dough into a long rectangle. Spread sausage over the dough and roll the dough to make a long tube. Slice into pinwheels and bake at 350 degrees on a slotted cookie sheet for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Serve with grape jelly alongside.

My traditional favorite is Pillsbury orange sweet rolls. I grew up with these, but I rarely serve them because I'm the only one in my household who eats them. I was thankful my parents were here Christmas morning so we could share them!

I LOVE the donut topiary tree! What a GREAT idea! Also, I do a similar sausage pinwheel recipe using Pillsbury's croissant rolls.

Thanks for sharing, Melissa, and Happy New Year to your sweet family!

Melissa, I am setting here shaking my head and wondering how you manage to do it all. Do you ever sleep?

You are such a detail person and it makes everything wonderful for your family. Thanks for sharing your Christmas pictures with us.

Hi Melissa,
I have been enjoying all of your Christmas posts! The PJ photos of the family were precious. And this Christmas breakfast looks so delicious and pretty at the same time. Maybe I can dress up our New Years Day breakfast - even if it's only my hubby and me. And I want to try those Christmas Morning Cups too! Your recipes are great!

Everything looks so good and inviting!
Question about the pinwheels.
Do you brown the sausage first?
I want to try this recipe.

You are amazing....love the donut tree.....

Melissa Lester said...

D, you don't brown the sausage first for these pinwheels. Joe bakes these on a slotted cookie sheet, and the grease drains to the cookie sheet underneath.

This can't have effect in reality, that's what I think.
