I've been asked to suggest some Christmas Breakfast Recipes and here they are.
Of course, you're not limited to Christmas - fish is great for breakfast any time of year.

Eggs Benedict uses cooked ham.
Step by step tutorial is included to make the perfect poached eggs - the way they do it in restaurants when there is a big demand. It works and is virtually foolproof!
A delicious combination of rice, smoked haddock and boiled egg, lovely kedgeree.
It can all be prepared in advance and just put together quickly before serving.
It's a lovely tasty breakfast - great for any day, not just a Christmas recipe!
These simple pates can be made ahead and refrigerated. If you've got excited children wanting to unwrap their presents, then you can just serve warm toast or even crackers and have a tasty and nutritious spread.
This is a very simple Smoked Salmon dip/pate recipe that can be made in advance.
You can make a bowl up for people to take spoonfuls from.

A variation on the smoked salmon, try smoked mackerel pate for a change. It is much cheaper as a rule, and just as tasty.

If you're looking for Christmas breakfast recipes, you need either fast or easily prepared in advance, so that you can put things together quickly at the last minute.
You'll have so much to do on the day, but people need feeding!
Eggs and smoked fish are the perfect combination - eggs are the original fast food and smoked fish is ready to eat straight from the packet.
The dip and pate recipes are good, because it means that you can make it the night before and bring them out for people to grab a portion and dip toast or bread into - almost can be eaten 'on the go'. Cut up a large french stick or pop some bread in the oven to warm through - your guests and family will love warm bread, it smells so homely.
To be honest, I could make a meal out of any of these recipes :-)
If you'd like to serve fish as an alternative for Christmas Lunch, then there are some great ideas here on the Christmas Fish Recipes page. If you have pescatarians as guests or just fancy a change, have a little look and tell me what you think.
