Muffin Tin Monday - Christmas Breakfast

This week our Muffin Tin theme is Christmas Breakfast!!!

One word for it ... YAY!

For a few years now, Aebleskivers have been the main dish.
They are a traditional Scandinavian food,
and since Bert and I both have Scandinavian roots,
we like to adopt some of those great
traditions into our own little family.

This is what we had:

We had bacon and sausage, Mrs. Butterworth's, orange juice,
Aebleskivers, Buttermilk Syrup, oranges.

The kids were excited to eat their Christmas Breakfast early, because that means they'll get to eat it again in a few weeks! I was excited to make a fresh new batch of Buttermilk Syrup, so then it is already to go for Christmas morning! And Bert was glad I added sausage (it's usually just bacon)!

If you want to see how Aebleskivers are made ... go HERE.

If you want a good recipe for Buttermilk Syrup ... go HERE.

(two hints for Buttermilk Syrup - first, you can always have buttermilk on hand if you freeze it in one cup servings,
 and second, use a REALLY BIG pot for the syrup, trust me!)

Have not made syrup in a few years. Once upon a time I made it all the time. I'll have to start making some again.
The tin looks yummy.
