    Christmas Breakfast ideas wanted

    Our family always has a big breakfast in the mornings on Christmas day. That way the afternoon is clear for the in laws or in my case work.
    There are a few that won't eat bacon and one that won't eat eggs plus a diabetic and a prego. There will be 18 including kids.
    Usually we try to have a mini buffet type set up.
    Any suggestions? So far I've got German pancakes and that's it.

    Summer berry pudding. We have it for dessert but its delicious for breakfast with thick yoghurt or cream.
