Christmas Breakfast

So, as if were weren't full enough from the previous night's Christmas Eve feast! Because on Christmas morning, it's time to bring on the Benny!

Yep, we have Eggs Benny on Christmas morning, accompanied by bacon and sausage. Usually, Dad provides the bacon in the form of this double smoked stuff he got from a local butcher, but the butcher closed shop during this past year, so dad no longer had access to his favourite bacon! Well, we made do with regular bacon, and we also had traditional English sausages made by another local butcher (who doesn't smoke anything). The sauce is from a package. The eggs are poached by yours truly. We also had fried potatoes, mimosas, and special coffees with Kahlua!
And we had a great guest for breakfast on Christmas morning, too! His name is Crushy and he's my SIL's friend's dog! He was so great! He's half American Bull Dog, and 1/4 each Pit Bull and Blue Heeler. He was so happy and mushy and just great company!For other Christmas pet shots, go here!

I LOVE Eggs benedict, LOVE it. How on earth do you get all those eggs poached in a timely manner??? And to serve everyone at somewhat the same time. Love the dog, that's quite a mix.

Crushy looks like he's hoping someone has "butter fingers" and drops one of those fine looking sausages!

Lee Ann: my SIL has a large, deep, round pot and I can poach 12 eggs in it at a time!

I used to be a breakfast cook, so I am very well-practiced at poaching large quantities of eggs!

Those sausages look great ...I don't think I've seen anything that looks so good at our local meat counter - I'm jealous!
