If you’re looking for Christmas Breakfast Ideas to serve on Christmas morning, we have 25 amazing recipe that will wow your family and overnight guests this holiday season. From overnight casseroles and make-ahead brunches to traditional Christmas breakfast fare, there’s no shortage of ideas here!
One of my very favourite things about Christmas Day is the big family breakfast that takes place at our house every Christmas morning.
When I was growing up, Christmas breakfast at our house was always a traditional breakfast of eggs, bacon, sausage, home fries and toast. My husband’s family always had steak for breakfast on Christmas morning.
Now that I host Christmas and Christmas breakfast for the family, I’m always on look-out for easy dishes that I can prepare ahead of time. I’d rather not be in the kitchen fretting over the morning meal while everyone else is unwrapping gifts around the tree, know what I mean? Dishes that I can prepare ahead of time and just pop in the oven on Christmas morning are a bonus.
I also like to make a couple of recipes that make Christmas morning special for the kids too.
In true holiday fashion, I’ve been scouring the internet looking for new recipes to make for Christmas morning this year.
I’ve found a bunch that look amazing, and I thought I’d share them with you along with a few of my old favourites.
Maybe some of these will become new family favourites at your Christmas breakfast table this year!
