Once all the excitement of the best morning of the year is over and all the presents are opened, there's only one thing left to do: eat a hearty breakfast with your friends and family. Whether you head the savory route and go for a breakfast hash or poached, or you decide to go sweet and aim your sights at a chocolate waffle or cinnamon apple French toast, you really can't go wrong on Christmas morning. These family style breakfasts are kid-approved, and won't have you slaving away in your kitchen on such a relaxing, festive morning.
Sweet Potato Hash Breakfast Casserole
Breakfast casseroles can streamline a morning routine like none other. Since most can be prepared in advance, day-of prep time is minimal, and the end result is a hearty, nutrient-rich dish everyone will adore. Grated sweet potatoes create a sturdy base that mimics traditional hash browns. Bell peppers, spinach, and a dash of cayenne pepper level out the sweetness of the potatoes and add wonderful flavor. The addition of cottage cheese amps up the fluffiness of the eggs, while a blanket of gooey, melted mozzarella locks in moisture. We like to think of it as a stuffed omelet with a side of hash browns, all baked into one delicious package.
