So now that I have given you ideas for Christmas Dinner, over the next few days I will be sharing breakfast ideas for Christmas morning including a Christmas Morning Pie. I am a big lover of breakfast. I could have a nice big breakfast or brunch and be set until dinner.
Today’s recipe is a yummy breakfast pie that I adapted from a recipe I found on allrecipes.com. This Christmas Morning Pie has green and red peppers in it that make it look nice and Christmasy. It is so easy and so tasty. I even put some sliced mushrooms on half of one of the pies. I love mushrooms with eggs. That portion of the pie didn’t look as Christmasy as the rest but was delish.
You could cook the sausage ahead of time and have your peppers all chopped then just assemble the pie in the morning and bake. Today, I am also going to share with you my other favorite egg dishes. I tried to narrow it down to 10, but I ended up with 11. They really are all fabulous.
Other Breakfast Ideas
- Lion House Quiche Lorraine – my all-time favorite quiche. It has a little lemon in it that really complements the layers of flavors in this dish.
- Southwest Egg Puff – so simple and with a little zip from green chilies. An excellent choice if you want an egg dish with no meat.
- Mini Ham Quiches – very easy to make and fun to have a mini version.
- Freezer Hash Brown Casserole – you can make this today and keep it in your freezer until right before Christmas, then thaw and bake.
- Crustless Quiche – another easy dish. This is one dish I hear from others on all the time about who they love it.
- Ham and Cheese Omelet Roll – a fun way to serve up an omelet to 12 people without all the work. Plus it looks amazing.
- Brunch Pizza Squares – a fun and yummy breakfast pizza.
- Baked Swiss and Sausage Omelet – another easy way to make an omelet for several people.
- Breakfast Casserole – like a strata and made with sausage.
- Baked Oven Omelet – like the breakfast casserole above but made with ham. This one is a family recipe from my mom.
- Hash Brown Quiche – a yummy version of a quiche made with hash browns as the base.
