On Christmas morning, there's often a rush of activity. Opening presents, attending church services, preparing for company later in the day. However, that's no excuse to ignore the most important meal of the day. Let breakfast make itself with your trusty crockpot! Simply put together this simple porridge the night before and let this handy kitchen tool do the rest of the work. In the morning, stir in a little salt and some half and half and you've got a lovely hot breakfast that's ready to be enjoyed with brown sugar and honeyed berries.

If you want, have hot cocoa, coffee and some muffins around and you can actually enjoy a casual holiday breakfast as you unwrap presents and wish one another a Merry Christmas. What's more, you've got minimal cleanup and a meal that will fuel you for a busy day! Now that's a present! Happy holidays!

As always, I encourage you to share your recipe ideas and comments. You can always post comments using the forms provided in the articles or email me directly at . Enjoy!
