Make-Ahead Christmas Morning Breakfast Traditions: A Recipe Collection

Not sure what to make this Christmas morning for breakfast? Maybe you want to try something different this year. I hear ya. I still haven’t found my Christmas morning tradition. Each year I try something different, but nothing has screamed, “This is it!” So I continue on my quest!

This holiday season, I decided to take a different approach. Instead of browsing Pinterest (by the way, are you following me?) for recipe ideas,

I thought I’d ask all my blogger colleagues for their tried and true family breakfast traditions.

I asked for recipes that can be made-ahead or pre-prepped so no one has to do much cooking Christmas morning. The other criteria was that it had to be a recipe that was a family favorite, made many times. 

I loved seeing other’s traditions! And I was actually blown away with the uniqueness that I can across. Most recipes have a twist that I’d never seen. And to me, there’s nothing better than a unique, delectable dish that can be pre-prepped for Christmas morning. 

Christmas Breakfast Recipes

Throughout the tryout to be on this collection of breakfast traditions, I received and reviewed over 100 recipes that people find near and dear to their hearts. How did I choose? The ones that made the cut would be something I’d be inclined to try. 

It’s going to be difficult to choose what to make this Christmas with all these options! Happy recipe shopping!
