hors d'eurves (sp) for Christmas breakfast

kayandallie | Nov 29, 2011 04:46 PM

Every year for Christmas, my B-I-L makes the oyster stew and I make the bacon and blueberry pancakes. Someone else scrambles the eggs, we pour the orange juice, and we sit down to breakfast (number and identity of people change year to year but it's usually around 10 or so). The problem is, we have to sit around, wait for people, I have to feed horses, and then we open presents and then we cook, so that it is close to 11 by the time we eat. By this time, some people are starving and have munched on stuff. I would like to have something that we could legally munch on before the present opening without impeding too much the hunger and delight of breakfast later. Since breakfast is already pretty much well rounded, does anyone have any suggestion for a special, make ahead carry one over till official breakfast type thing? Actually, I am leaning towards muffin/bread type thing; maybe a cranberry bread, but I don't know that it's special enough for Christmas.
Thanks!
