Christmas dinner has its traditions and very often it is similar to the Thanksgiving meal, although some families may swap out roasted turkey for candied ham or roast beef.

Instead, I'm going to offer you some Christmas breakfast recipe ideas that Stir It Up! has collected over the years. After all, a warm breakfast is a nice way to start the day (or take a break from opening presents if you start early).

Merry Christmas!

Christmas popovers

Popovers make a perfect Christmas morning breakfast paired with a hot drink.

Gingerbread and cranberry muffins

Make the batter a day or two ahead, then simply scoop them out in the morning and bake. The deep ginger and molasses flavor sings of Christmas and the tart, sweet cranberries add to the festive flavor.

Cranberry lemon scones

Delicious fresh cranberry scones with a zesty lemon icing.

Pumpkin cranberry scones

Pumpkin cranberry scones with orange zest icing made with self-rising flour and pumpkin pie filling are easy to make.
