Christmas Breakfast Fatty Ideas???

Discussion in 'Fatties' started by smokin relaxin steve, Dec 22, 2010.

  1. Christmas Breakfast is huge with my family... many years most of us eat so much during the breakfast we don't have room for dinner LOL!!! This year i was thinking about adding a Fatty to the Breakfast Menu... I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas to make it more Christmas like??? I am at a loss....

    Our usual menu is





    Pork Roll




    Assorted Cheese


    An my personal favorite... extra spicy Bloody Marys [​IMG]

    So any ideas for an Christmas Themed Fatty... if not i was thinking of scrambled eggs and left over bacon from the weave...

    A really tastey breakfast fatty I did was:
    • make two slices of french toast
    • mix some cream cheese with some orange marmalade approx. 1:1 ratio.
    • spread the cream cheese mix onto a piece of french toast and put the othe piece on top... like a sandwich.
    • chop up the sandwich into little squares
    • fill your fattie with the little squares and some maple syrup.
    It makes for a great sweet/salty breakfast fatty, and I usually have a slice or two and and an egg.... mmmmmm.
  3. MMMMM I like I like... i forgot about the option of French toast (or even pancake)... and i do love Maple Syrup on my breakfast meat... This could be an option... Thanks!

    I have been thinking about the same thing. I think I will try a fattie made out of:

    Jimmy Deans Sage sausage

    Hash brown potatoes

    Boiled egg, sliced

    Chedder cheese

    Hickory smoked bacon

    Any other ideas to add to this one?

    Hey Steve you could always add some sauteed spinach, garlic  and onions with some mozarella cheese as a filling or make some fresh sausage and make this killer cassarole to add to your list

    Italian Spinach Pie

    8 oz mild Italian sausage (can also use hot)

    6 eggs separated

    2 packages frozen spinach, thawed and drained

    1 ½ c grated cheese (Swiss or cheddar)

    3 T chopped onion

    2 t Worcestershire sauce

    Dash Tabasco

    2 unbaked pie crusts

    Egg wash, 1 egg beaten with a tablespoon of milk

    1 T sesame seeds

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

    Fry sausage until brown and crumbly.  Drain thoroughly and set aside.  In a large bowl beat the eggs yolks will and stir in the sausage, spinach, cheese, onions, Worcestershire sauce and Tabasco.  In a separate bowl, beat egg whites until stiff.  Fold egg whites into spinach mixture.  Thoroughly grease a 9” springform pan, line the bottom with pastry so that it overlaps the side.  Spoon in spinach mixture.  Top with the other crust.  Crimp the edges and perforate the top with a fork.  Brush top with the egg wash and sprinkle sesame seeds on top.  You won’t use all the egg wash.

    Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until golden brown.  Remove from the oven and place on a cooling rack.  Loosen and remove sides of pan.  Allow to cool 10 minutes before serving.

    Serves 8

    Here is another item to add to your list that you can do a day ahead of time

    Skier’s French Toast

    2 T corn syrup (light or dark or a combination)

    ½ c butter

    1 c brown sugar, packed

    1 loaf white bread, thickly sliced

    5 eggs

    1 ½ c milk

    1 t vanilla

    ¼ t salt

    In a small saucepan combine the syrup, butter and brown sugar; simmer until syrupy.  Pour this mixture into a 9” by 13” baking pan.  Set aside.

    Slice the loaf into thick slices, remove crusts and on the syrup in the baking pan.  You will have 2 even even layers.

    In a large bowl, beat together the eggs, milk, vanilla and salt.  Pour evenly over the bread.  Cover and refrigerate overnight.

    In the morning, leave the casserole at room temperature while the oven preheats.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.  Cut into squares and serve immediately.  Serve with butter and a selection of syrups.

    Serves 6 to 8

  6. I'm a big fan of tater tots in a breakfast fatty.  Cook them really crispy and let them cool before you put them in.

    I like using maple bacon for the weave, Jimmy Dean Breakfast Sausage, chopped up pieces of pancakes, a can of diced apple pie filling, shredded american cheese, coat weave with maple syrup and roll in diced nutes of choice (I don't personally like pecans or walnuts which sounds the best so I use beer nuts or peanuts).
  8. Thanks! Everyone!!!! all these ideas sound great... i especially like the sweet & savory ones... I will probably go that route... thanks again! MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    I think that a pancake fattie would go right alone with the normal menu.
