Transcript for Mario Batali Makes the Perfect Christmas Breakfast
We're here with mario batali, our special christmas co-host. He kicked off the 12 days of christmas countdown. Why not have him back for the perfect holiday breakfast. And try, I will, sam. Let's start with keeping the idea that you're really all about presents. You're relaxing. You're with family. You don't want any difficult issues. We're going to make a simple frittata. We're going to take eight eggs here. I cannot wait to use the magic whisker. I heard you're a giant whiskerer around here. You can put anything into it. Leftover vegetables. I like mushrooms because it's seasonal. Can you whisk too much? You can never overwhisk, in my house, sam. We have a little -- we let it go like that. We're going to cook them until they're sweated down, so they look like this. That is gorgeous. Mr. Rusty, is this looking good over here? That's gorgeous. Nothing says holiday like some sweating mushrooms. Absolutely right. We're going to add salt and pepper. All right.

And cut it like a pie into wedges. I need my parmesan princess to do one little sprinkle here. Don't be afraid. Make it snow, baby. Make it snow. And there you have a perfect frittata. You could make this in advance. The next dish I like to show, is french toast. This is a classic italian holiday bread. You get these as gifts. You never know what to do with them. A lot of kids are afraid of the fruit and raisins. So, hiding it in powdered sugar. We put cranberry syrup. And we have the green and the red, just like the sweat switch. ♪ I have green pajamas ♪ you have christmas pajamas. It's red. It's green. It's holiday relaxing. The presents are open. Everybody eat.
