Elevate your Christmas morning with these easy and delicious breakfast ideas that add a dash of festive joy to your celebrations. From fluffy pancakes to savory breakfast casseroles, these breakfast recipes will let you savor the magic of the season without sacrificing precious family time.
Tips to make breakfast go smoothly on Christmas morning
- Have a plan. Know what you are going to serve so that breakfast is a no-brainer on Christmas morning.
- Make ahead. Many of the items listed below can be made in advance and reheated for Christmas breakfast. Have some sides ready to go if you want to serve something with the items below, such as hard cook eggs, yogurt, fruit, whole wheat English muffins, or other breakfast favorites.
- Disposable dishes. If you know you’ll have a crowd at your house on Christmas and want to start the day with minimal kitchen cleaning, allowing your family to use disposable dishes is a huge time saver.
- Enlist help. Sure, Christmas is filled with visions of gifts, family fun, and more, but kids of almost any age can be given tasks to help. Have the older kids load up the breakfast dishes into the dishwasher. Have the younger children wipe down the table. Having the kids (and adults too) do age appropriate chores helps you to stay focused on the joy of the day by not overworking yourself.
