10 Christmas Morning Breakfast Ideas
Happy happy, everyone! Only two more sleeps until Christmas. And for all my friends celebrating Hanukkah or Kwanza, I hope you have a week filled with family, love and lots of good food! I’m sharing a few Christmas breakfast ideas in case you need inspiration.
I’ve been to the grocery store twice in the past 24 hours getting ready for the next couple days. The only thing I don’t have nailed down is the morning of. Coffee cake, bagel bar or a savory bread pudding? Maybe all three! Check out these links for other Christmas menus or appetizer, dessert or cocktail recipes. Let me know your Christmas morning breakfast tradition in the comments below.
Ina Garten’s Sour Cream Coffee Cake
Every year without fail. I omit the walnuts and use Cup-4-Cup gluten-free flour. Bob’s Red Mill gluten-free flour also works great here. To make it easier, I mix the dry ingredients the night before and make the crumble topping. It all gets put together in the morning and goes in the oven in about 10 minutes flat.
Savory Breakfast Bread Pudding
Filled with onions, greens, Italian sausage and gruyere, this brioche or French bread strata is just as good for dinner!
Breakfast Slab Pie
Feeds a crowd and completely delish. Instead of slicing the potatoes, I might grate them instead.
French Toast Casserole
My family doesn’t really get into this, but I sure wish they would. Especially since you can assemble it the night before and bake it off in the morning. I love it with pecans and dried cranberries or cherries.
Cinnamon Roll Wreath
I wish I had it in me to make this, it’s so pretty and festive.
Crescent Roll Cinnamon Rolls
Sounds like a great Christmas morning shortcut to me!
A perfect breakfast for everyone to share is never wrong. Some sautéd apples would be delicious as a topping.
Prosciutto Egg Cups
This is my friend Katie’s recipe, and it’s easy, healthy and low-carb!
Oven Cooked Brown Sugar Bacon
You can also make this without the sugar and it’s a great hands-off method.
Include all the fixings: Smoked salmon, cream cheese, capers, hard cooked eggs, tomatoes, cucumbers, pickled red onions, crunchy salt and lemon. Take it “next level” by whipping your cream cheese with dill, lemon zest and a little salt and pepper.
Mimosas and strong coffee to wash it all down, of course! And then a long winter’s nap.
Our Christmas morning menu has remained pretty much the same for 25 years – it works for us! All 5 of us siblings contribute something so that whomever is hosting doesn’t have to do it all.
Our menu includes:
Wake-up. Casserole (made the night before and baked in the morning’
Assortment of bagels and smears
Coffee, hot chocolate, eggnog, and of course mimosas.
Merry Christmas to you and yours.
Love the division of labor!! I might need to know what cranberry brickle is??
