Thanksgiving Ideas: Breakfast

Print Friendly

Is breakfast on Thanksgiving Day a bit of an afterthought or do you plan something special? Our theory is that Thanksgiving Day breakfast should be easy, something that we can make ahead because the day will be filled with cooking for the big meal. We used to forget about breakfast then have to dash out on Thanksgiving morning to pick up donuts just to keep things easy, but we have learned to plan ahead and it has made our holiday breakfast much more relaxing.

Here are some of our favorites.

    We are not what I would call a health concise family. the tradition is to not eat until the arly dinner time (somewhere floating between traditional lunch and traditional dinner time.) If dinner is delayed much beyond that, a breakfast of cereal and milk, or, if there is company at the house, donuts, usually does it.
    i like your idea better – something in the fridge that can go in the oven. also, because I live where there is distance between me and many friends, I attend many potlucks during the holidays which last over night. most of the women bring breakfast for these, and any of these ideas would be awesome.
    Our family does have traditional breakfast for the weekend days after thanksgiving – leftover pie!
