Hosting during the holidays can be a lot of fun, but it also comes with responsibility. Not only do you need to keep guests entertained, but you need to have every single little detail mapped out — including breakfast for overnight guests. Sure, you can go with pop tarts or cereal, but unless all your guests are under the age of 12, most of them will be less than impressed. 

Show your guests how much you care about them with one of our easy recipes below. You can make most of these ahead of time, so you can still enjoy quality family time.
