Holly, Jolly Recipes for Merry Mornings

Dec 12, 2016 03:36AM, Published by Family Features, Categories: Family Features, Family Features Food




This holiday season, make your mornings merry and savor time with loved ones visiting from near and far with festive recipes like Christmas Tree Waffles and Overnight Cinnamon Roll Casserole.

"You don't have to get up early to impress guests with a holiday breakfast," said Chef Kevan Vetter of the McCormick Kitchens. "Take waffles, simply add green food color to the batter then dust with powdered sugar 'snow' to resemble Christmas trees. Or prepare a cinnamon roll casserole the night before. Soak cut-up challah bread in milk and cinnamon overnight, bake until golden in the morning. Finish off with a drizzle of cream cheese frosting."

For more Christmas tips and recipes, find McCormick on Pinterest and Facebook, and visit McCormick.com.
