Ah, the holiday season.
Tis the time for long, leisurely breakfasts (one of my favorite things in the WORLD!). And this Apple Pecan Monkey Bread seriously needs to be on your holiday table this year.
Our Christmas morning tradition growing up was to get up super early and open stockings and then bigger gifts at home, pop in a holiday movie (and probably have some candy at 7 am) and play with our stuff while my mom worked on her breakfast casserole to take over to the Lowell’s house. My parents have known the Lowell’s since before either of them had kids, and our families have been close ever since – even living just 4 minutes apart.
Once everything was ready, we’d pile in the van – usually still in our pajamas – and head over to their house to eat my mom and Jill’s breakfast casseroles, fruit, and monkey bread. A little sweet, a little savory, a little coffee or juice. We’d sit and eat and then exchange gifts with each other.
