What do you have for breakfast on Christmas Day?
I asked this question of friends, colleagues and relatives recently and it was a really lovely insight into family traditions and personal preferences. From classic smoked salmon and scrambled eggs to sausage rolls and brown sauce or soggy cold toast as the kids rip through their presents there’s a reason for each breakfast choice. As has been well documented on this blog I’m something of a cereal monster so I made a festive granola. I normally avoid the “bloggers question” on here but this time I’d really like to know – what do you have for breakfast on Christmas Day and why? Happy Christmas everyone.
