I thought it would be fun to create a gingerbread themed breakfast board for the holidays, and I was inspired by a few fun gingerbread themed finds like the gingerbread man waffle maker, and the gingerbread man mini cast iron skillet.  Once I had those, I also found some gingerbread man sprinkles, and gingerbread man marshmallows, just for fun.

If you couldn’t find the gingerbread man waffle maker you could make regular pancakes or waffles and use a cookie cutter to cut them into gingerbread man shapes, or any festive shape for the holidays.  

We used regular waffles, but gingerbread flavoured waffles would be a fun addition for our theme.  You could also serve it with gingerbread flavoured coffee as well.

Other ideas would be to include some breakfast pastries on the board.  Mini danish, or cinnamon buns would be a great addition.  To make them more festive, you could add any holiday sprinkles to them.  You could also serve with gingerbread flavoured coffee.

To Assemble The Christmas Breakfast Board

Start by beginning the sugared cranberries, so that can sit and get sticky while you’re cooking the rest of the food.  Cook the sausage and bacon.  Meanwhile, make the waffles with your favourite waffle mix or recipe.  Whip the cream.  Lastly scramble some eggs.  

To put the breakfast board together, start by arranging the waffles down the middle of the board in a wave.  Add the cast iron skillet of eggs, and the bowl of whipped cream, sprinkles, and maple syrup jug.  Next arrange the breakfast meats, and fruit around the other items.  Use a little fresh cedar from the garden to with the fruit for decoration.  Lastly add in the marshmallows, and sprinkle the whipped cream with some of the holiday sprinkles.  Serve and enjoy!
