Here is a great list of 10 BBQ/Potluck recipes for you to enjoy.

5 Breakfast Recipes for Christmas Morning
Christmas morning is coming up fast. And with preparing for the dinner that day, I like to also plan for breakfast that morning. I try to make a recipe that either we have had before or I search online for a new one that the family might like. Usually we have Mike’s mom, brother and our niece for breakfast. But this year is only his mother and us. So I am looking for something new and simple for us to make. I am going to prepare it the night before and then just pop it in while we unwrap gifts.
