Every year, we head over to my family’s house around noon for Thanksgiving Day lunch and other festivities with family…so that morning is our time as a family of four.
When Kensington was about one, we started having an annual Thanksgiving Day Parade Breakfast. We stay in our pjs, we watch the parade and we eat a yummy breakfast together…and it is one of my very favorite parts of our day.
Now listen, I was raised by people who if they know they’re going to eat a big meal later in the day, they don’t eat anything else all day in preparation…Andrew and I are not such people. We feel like you should never go into a big meal starving (because that’s just not healthy), so we always eat something the morning of Thanksgiving.
I’m giving you several options below…whether you just need a little bite to go with cocoa and coffee before your Turkey Day lunch or you need a more substantial breakfast because your big meal is later in the day, here are some simple (make ahead) options for you. The last thing you need to do is make more food on Thanksgiving Day…all of these are made in advance.
Grab your cozy pajamas, your favorite little people and turn on the parade…the morning of Thanksgiving can be such a fun time!
These 3 Ingredient Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Muffins are perfect with a cup of coffee.
Assemble my Ham and Cheese Biscuit Sliders in advance and just bake them off in the morning.
We love this Egg Nog Monkey Bread. It’s so simple to make and really delicious on a chilly fall morning.
Blueberry French Toast Bake is prepared the day before and popped in the oven right before the parade begins.
Sausage Crescent Breakfast Casserole is a yummy and hearty breakfast that will keep you full until it’s time to carve the big bird.
This year, cozy up with a yummy breakfast and the Thanksgiving Day parade! It’s a wonderful tradition!
