I love to make something kind of special for Christmas morning…it’s a tradition I’m hoping to hold on to in our house. It’s just nice to have a big, probably not-so-good-for-you breakfast waiting after you open all of the presents. I think food is one of the biggest memories we hold onto, so why not make the food we remember from special days delicious?
So, to continue the tradition this year, I made Cream Cheese-Stuffed Cinnamon Monkey Bread (along with one of my favorite breakfast recipes ever, Plain Chicken’s Cream Cheese Sausage Balls). It’s a great recipe to prep the night before so it would be perfect to take to a brunch or make ahead for Christmas morning. It’s definitely one that’s going to be a staple in our big family breakfasts! (And no, before you ask, I was only able to have a couple of bites. But it’s on like Donkey Kong next year.)
