Favorite Christmas Breakfast Ideas

It seems like breakfast on Christmas morning is usually a tradition special to your family. 

Growing up, my dad always made Aebleskivers.  This was a special treat for us since they took a while to make enough to fill all of us up.  We seemed to eat them faster than my dad could make them, even with two Aebleskiver pans cooking at once.  They remind me of my Danish grandma...and of my dad. 

Since I've started a family of my own, we have a tradition of having cinnamon rolls for breakfast on Christmas.  I mix them up on Christmas Eve and let them sit overnight in the fridge.  Then I bake them after we open presents.  Here's exactly how I prep them to rise overnight...and here's the recipe

If pancakes are more your style, my family LOVES this recipe for Light and Tender Wheat-Oatmeal Pancakes
The best part is that you prepare the dry mix beforehand and store it in your freezer, then all you have to do is measure out how much you need and add buttermilk (or milk or yogurt) and eggs and cook! 

Another fun breakfast food is German Pancakes (or at least that's what my family calls them).  Super easy to blend together and bake.  Your family will love seeing how "high" it gets in the oven.

Or if you live in New Mexico (like me) and love your green chile, then you could make breakfast burritos

One Hour Rolls

These rolls are amazing!  I've been making these rolls since 2001 when I was a newlywed and my sister-in-law shared the recipe with me.  The rolls are light, fluffy, easy to make and they only take one hour!  And delicious too!   I've made these rolls more times than I can count, so I've perfected the art of making them.  Here are some step-by-step instructions with pictures for you. Here's what you'll need.  I buy pretty much all of the ingredients in this recipe at Sam's club, thus the huge containers.  You need warm water, yeast, oil, sugar, salt, egg and flour. In the mixer bowl, add warm water (not hot), oil, sugar and yeast.  Mix together. After ten or fifteen minutes the yeast mixture should be puffed up like this.  Time to add the salt and beaten egg. Then mix in the flour.  (I've used a mixture of half wheat and half white flour successfully.) Keep adding flour until the dough is manageable.  It will be a little sticky, b

Don't like your house to smell like food? I've got a kitchen tip for that!

I have a smallish, one story house and if I cook food that is kind of smelly, like onions, the smell tends to linger in every room.  This is a pet peeve of mine and (also my husband's).  Over the years I've found a few ways to cook smelly food without smelling up the kitchen. Use your garage!   I use my garage quite often to cook things in.  I open the window and it airs out, especially when you open the garage door.  I'm sure my neighbors wonder what I'm cooking. I've used two different kitchen appliances in the garage:  my crockpot and my food dehydrator. Crockpot - I did this very thing today since I'm simmering chicken, onions, carrots and celery to make chicken noodle soup tonight.  I don't want my house to smell like onions all day, so I plugged it in on my husband's workbench.   Food dehydrator - when I make jerky, I plug the food dehydrator in in the garage.  I don't really want my house to smell like meat for hours
