Christmas morning starts one of the best days of the year. It can also be a time of completely wonderful chaos! I start each morning by getting up earlier than my son and husband to get a little bit of “me” time. This way I have the opportunity for a cup of coffee and a bit of quiet before the day begins. This isn’t the case on Christmas morning! When you add in any overnight guests – in my opinion, it’s better to be prepared! Here are some easy Christmas morning breakfast ideas!
You can put together a make-ahead breakfast casserole, or a buffet. Whatever you do you want to make sure that you use ideas and menus that are easy, that can be put on a pretty platter, (sometimes even gluten free) and can serve a crowd!
These Rustic Gluten Free Cinnamon Buns look too good to be gluten free – but they are! Recipe by Rebecca at Strength & Sunshine
Another from Rebecca at Strength & Sunshine – Gingerbread Quinoa Coffee Cake – YUM! This looks like it might work to slice up and use for take-home gifts on Christmas night for a morning after Christmas treat!

Another new favorite for our Christmas Brunch buffet will be Terri’s Holiday Ham & Rice Eggs Benedict. You can find the recipe at Food Meanderings!

Tricia at Rhubarbarians brings us this Crispy Cranberry Buttermilk Pancake recipe – and I think they are PERFECT for a Christmas Brunch! (along with just about any other day of EVER).

Jaclyn also shared her Gingerbread Pancake recipe – and I’m thinking I need to try these STAT!
Rounding out the Christmas Brunch table:
There’s a whole lot of sweet recipes listed here. Round that out a little bit by cooking a ham the day before, slice it and have it available cold to add some additional protein. Together, I think we have a winning Christmas Brunch here!
Enjoy your holiday season and all of these wonderful brunch yummies!
