Christmas Eve recap

This year, we are celebrating Christmas a day late. Which means our Christmas Eve tradition of breakfast for dinner happened last night. This tradition does double duty - not only does it make for a delicious dinner, but the leftovers are perfect for Christmas morning!

Figure 1. Mushroom-cheddar frittata. This was both Mom and I's first frittata experience and it came out better than we expected! This beauty contained mushrooms, roasted red potatoes, sharp cheddar, and broccoli.

Figure 2. A view inside for good measure.

Figure 3. Sour cream coffee cake with cinnamon oat streusel. This is a keeper, for sure. The sour cream batter with almond extract made this extra special. And it has oats on top, so it's healthy, right?

Figure 4. Before baking. Check out that streusel!

Figure 5. My plate: frittata, coffee cake, and a simple spinach salad. A perfect Christmas Eve.


  1. Mmmm, the frittata looks great! I made a leftover ham and broccoli omelet-like casserole for Christmas morning, and it was fabulous. Love leftovers!

  2. Breakfast for dinner is amazing, and it's such a smart tradition to do it the night before Christmas! I would totally love to steal that one...but John isn't into the breakfast at night deal. That one continues to blow my mind!

    Hope you had a great holiday...and a relaxing segue back into the work week!

  3. You know I definitely approve of breakfast for dinner :D The frittata looks amazing, buuuuut I'm a sucker for anything with cinnamon and sugar, so the coffee cake definitely stole the show for me.

  4. mm I love egg dishes, that one looks great. Glad you had a great time this holiday season!

  5. Now that looks like a successful first frittata. But yes, the coffee cake takes the, um, cake :D.

  6. i made that exact same fritatta for christmas morning! i made a few modifications since the boys of my fam don't like broccoli, but i thought it was delicious!

    1. ha! i can't believe you made the same fritatta!!! it was delicious, no? great minds...

  7. Cinnamon Oat Streusel?! Can you bring some of that to my house?!

  8. That frittata looks amazing! :) Hope you had a great Christmas!
