Christmas Breakfast Ideas
Christmas morning is one of the best times of the year. Everyone wakes up excited to open gifts…and they’re all expecting a delicious Christmas breakfast to go with it.
I love Christmas morning breakfast just as much as everyone else, but preparing it for family and guests when I’m ALSO really excited to sit down and open gifts…well, I want it to be as quick and painless as possible. I want something delicious and easy to serve everyone, so we can eat and move on to the main event.
We can’t just serve cold cereal and call it a day. We gotta have the pancakes, cinnamon rolls, eggs, bacon, french toast, breakfast casseroles, etc. to really impress everyone. Breakfast is such an important part of the whole Christmas morning experience, so it has to be good!
