;) We usually eat ham and eggs for breakfast. And then Ham and Potatoes for lunch. I didn't get green bean casserole at thanksgiving this year so I will make it for Christmas. And candy for desert of course.

We normally do not do casseroles but we do like gluten-free quiche and frittatas which are both great for guests. I also like making fruit salads in martini glasses with a lime juice poppyseed glaze. I also make scones and several kinds of flavoured butters (and infuse some honeys) and serve with some of my jellies. Maybe tomorrow morning we will have to do a practice run! :D

Well, in the "old days" :lol: we had vanilla/cinnamon french toast or crepes, some bacon and mimosas after we opened the stockings and the rest of our presents. Sometimes we had a veggie quiche or a strata. Bagels with smoked salmon and cream cheese. (no wonder I used to be so "voluptuous" i.e. chubby) :lol:

We opened some gifts on Christmas Eve and had a toast with champagne and something sweet like homemade Christmas pudding or my outrageous tiramisu or truffles..sigh. The last few years when I was ill, that all stopped. Now, I am so much better and we can celebrate again! Hooray! ;)

Man, I am going to have to do some serious recipe re-vamping ...best get to work on that, eh?? :blink::lol:

here's a strata that might work for you (I have not tried it yet):

We used to always have that casserole where you chop up bread, throw in browned sausage or crumbled bacon bits, sauteed onion, then top with whisked eggs and milk, refrigerate it overnight. On Christmas morning you bake it with cheese on top. I bet it would be good with Udi's or other gluten-free bread cubes.

The strata sound great because you can use gluten free waffles and prepare it the night before. I might substitute the smoked salmon for shrimp, and will be grilling a marinated beef tenderloin. I need one more thing, but Ambrosia with fresh cream for desert.

I make a bacon and cheese quiche. This year I may include a few things to make a "brunch" type meal. Ham slices, deviled eggs, not sure what else yet.

At Christmas mornings we usually have a big breakfast table. Typical dishes are:

Bake-off breadrolls with luxury cold cuts, luxury marmalade or special cheeses. Kaisersemmel with thin slices of roast beef for instance, or white rolls with strawberry marmalade.

Kerststol: Christmas bread filled with dried fruits, nuts and a center of almond paste. (This calls for a recipe! Check the "going Dutch" topic.)

Luxury or exotic fruits, yoghurt, cooked eggs and high-quality butter are also popular.

We always used to have cinnamon rolls for Christmas morning. And last year I made one of those casseroles with eggs and sausage, but since we can't have eggs I don't know what we will have for breakfast this year :(

hmm...I wonder...Can you use an egg substitute?? Like EnerG?

I meant to add: in the rolls....use an egg sub in the rolls.

As for strata or casserole, that is going to be tricky. hmm...but I love a good challenge... :)

I found this one, maybe on here, have not tried it yet, but it sounds so easy:

BREAKFAST STRATA

butter (I used olive oil) the bottom of dish

put one layer of gluten-free bread (cheap, white. old bread would work well)

spread about a cup of ham, cup of mushrooms, cup of chopped peppers (more or less depending on how much you like these things) Green onions would be good too.

add a layer of cheese,

add a second layer of everything.

Mix 3 cups of hemp milk with 9 eggs (go a little light on the milk if you have lots of veggies) Add a bit of salt, pepper, garlic to this mix.

Pour over your bread layers. It shouldn't cover the top.

Cover and put in the frig overnight, or up to 48 hours.

Bake 30 minutes covered at 350, then 20 minutes or so uncovered. Let it sit a few minutes before cutting.

You can finish with buttered bread crumbs and have a crunchy top instead of a melty top.

I made this for my neighbor and her guests the morning of her husband's memorial service. She said it was very good. May make it for us this Christmas morning:

Breakfast Casserole by Fire and Salt (recommended by Poppi)

1/2 pound of meat (Bacon, Sausage, Ham, or a combination of any)

1/2 cup onion (chopped)

1/2 cup green bell pepper (Chopped)

12 eggs

1/2 cup milk (I use 1%)

1/2 cup water

1 package (about 16 ounces) fresh hash brown potatoes or frozen hash browns-thawed

4 ounces shredded cheddar cheese

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp pepper

1/4 tsp dill weed

Directions:

Begin by cooking the bacon, sausage, or any other meat of your choice. Cut the meat into bite size pieces. While the meat is cooking, chop the onion and green pepper, set aside. In a large bowl, whisk together the 12 eggs, milk, water, salt, pepper, and dill weed. Add the meat, hash browns, cheese, onion, and pepper to the egg mix. Combine thoroughly.

Pour the whole mix into a 9x13 baking dish. Spread the mixture around in the baking dish to even it out. Bake at 375 degrees F for 30-40 minutes or until a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Allow to cool for a couple minutes before serving. The hash browns do a great job of holding this casserole together. Enjoy with a hot cup of coffee!!!

Baking Directions:

Bake in a 375 degree F oven for 30-40 minutes

This one doesn't have bread in the bottom but I love it. We usually use bacon and the veggies are easily customizable based on what's around. My family likes sauteed mushrooms and chopped up red bell peppers, no onions. Poppi
