One of my favorite newer Christmas traditions is a big Christmas breakfast. Growing up, we would have something really small for breakfast after we opened our presents because dinner at my grandma’s was at noon sharp. I actually prefer having our big holiday meal in the middle of the day so we can stuff ourselves full, take a nap, and then snack on leftovers and dessert whenever we get hungry again.
Since moving to NC my siblings and I have developed our own new Christmas traditions which typically involve a big dinner at someone’s house for Christmas Eve, some of us attending Midnight Mass, then everyone doing their own thing on Christmas Day. This year, my mom is coming down to spend the holiday with all of us so we will be having a Christmas dinner on Christmas Day but not until later in the afternoon. That means a big Christmas breakfast for Jason and I at our house for just us.
This year, I have been trying to figure out a special breakfast dish that fits into our paleo diet and decided upon Paleo Banana Pancakes and maybe some eggs with bell peppers and bacon to go with it.
