12 Days of Christmas – Christmas Menu Themes: Christmas Breakfast
If you are looking for something different to do for Christmas this year, or if you only have a few people to cater for, why not try a Christmas Breakfast?
By NO MEANS am I saying everyone needs to get up early, breakfast can be served at any time of the day! I’m simply offering a different, yet easier and lighter alternative to your average Christmas Feast! Things like fresh fruits, poached eggs, beautiful breads and loads of cheese could all be included to make for a really impressive meal. You could also serve up a platter of these festive inspired croissants to really impress your guests.
Fresh butter croissants
Smoked Chicken (or Turkey!)
SERVE IT UP
Split your Croissant through the middle with a bread knife, taking care not to squash it;
Spread one side (liberally – it IS Christmas!!) with Cream Cheese and the other with Redcurrant Jelly;
Slice some Smoked Chicken/Turkey and overlap the slices around one crescent;
Cover the other crescent with a good handful of baby Rocket;
Fold together and serve.
Croissant Gourmet Cheese
Fresh Butter croissants
Double Brie Cheese
Spiced Pear Paste (or Spicy Pear Chutney)
Leg Ham off the bone
SERVE IT UP
Split your Croissant through the middle;
Pile one side high with slices of the delish double brie cheese and the other side with your pear paste or chutney;
Lay several large slices of ham so they overlap around one crescent;
Fold together, slice and serve!
