A gluten free Christmas: Day 20

What are you going to have for a celebratory Christmas breakfast?

When we get together for a big family Christmas (expecting 25 this year), we often have a glass of Buck’s Fizz (fizzy wine and orange juice) and croissants – with extra cereals/toast available for those who are hungry!

celebrationOn Boxing Day, we’ll be having a bigger brunch, which will probably include:

  • scrambled eggs
  • smoked salmon
  • kedgeree
  • sausages
  • bacon
  • baked beans
  • mushrooms
  • tomatoes
  • scotch pancakes
  • waffles and maple syrup

This way, the vegetarians, the pescatarians and the full English breakfast fans can all find something they can eat. No vegans in our family – yet.

Those living gluten free will also be able to eat this, because we’ll make sure that the gluten traps – the croissants, the sausages, the baked beans, the scotch pancakes and the waffles – will all be gluten free. Many things on the list are naturally gluten free (salmon, eggs, vegetables, maple syrup). For those that are not, here are our alternative plans:
