Make this the night before and enjoy brunch with your kids rather than catering to them! Also great for taking places because the syrup is built-in.

Vaselopita - Greek New Years Cake

Traditional Greek New Years Day bread. Served as a coffee cake for breakfast. Also the person who receives the quarter inside gets good luck for 1 year!

I don't know if this is what you're looking for, but if you want something easy for the morning, this is it. You have to start it the night before, but then all the work is done and it will seem like you went all out.

This recipe was given to me by a friend several years ago. It's easy to make and always a hit! Co-workers beg for it, and it's my husband's favorite!

French Toast Souffle

Rating: Unrated
This is a scrumptious casserole of bread, cream cheese, eggs, and milk. Tastes just like regular French toast but it's made the night before and baked in the oven. This is not really sweet so you might like more maple syrup with it.

This recipe was handed down to me by my mother. It is a Dutch favorite on New Year's Day. I spent New Year's Day with my in-laws for the first time and brought this tradition with me. They were very impressed with this delicious doughnut-like treat.
