Christmas Morning Breakfasts

December 22, 2014

Christmas morning is always filled with excitement.

Whether you have little kids or your home only consists of adults, there is something wonderful on that morning when you know you are going to exchange gifts. It is not even so much about receiving presents as it is sharing joy and knowing how happy everyone is that day.

Of course, once all of the presents have been unwrapped, toys have been assembled, and clean up begins, there is a small part that can easily be forgotten — breakfast! We have routine for the morning and we plan our menu for Christmas dinner, but what about the in-between of gifts and dinner? While you watch your kids play with their gifts or visiting with one another, you need to have something great to eat!

I have found a few festive Christmas breakfasts that should not take too much work (you want to spend the time with your family, not in the kitchen!) and that you will all appreciate.

If you are feeling extremely festive, you could make those Cinnamon Tree Rolls, from scratch. It will impress your family and would be an easy treat to serve.

This Slow Cooker Breakfast Casserole is perfect for Christmas morning because you can make it the night before! You won’t have to take time away from your family and your house will smell delicious that morning.

If you have a sweeter tooth at breakfast time, the Blueberry Croissant Puff would be wonderful after opening presents, or even while you open presents! Can’t you imagine a nice cup of coffee with this pastry?!

I love a good breakfast casserole, and potatoes and bacon together sound like a perfect fit. If you’re looking for something salty to go along with a pastry, or even just to serve on its own, this Potato Bacon Casserole looks simple and delicious to start out your holiday.

Whether you go fancy or simple, sweet or salty, simple or complicated, the point is that breakfast is just another way to make the day special. As you you are making your last minute holiday plans, be sure to add in a yummy start to the most perfect day of the year!
