Christmas Breakfast TIPS:
- Plan a simple, no-fuss menu!
- Christmas morning is busy. Plan a make-ahead breakfast menu so you will be able to enjoy a relaxing holiday morning with your family.
- A make-ahead breakfast casserole can be prepared the night before. It’s refrigerated overnight, and in the morning you’ll just pop it into the oven. Serve with chopped fresh fruit (which you can also prepare ahead).
- Cinnamon rolls and other yeast-based pastries can also be prepared the night before. Put the rolls in the refrigerator overnight for their second rise, and take the rolls out in the morning to sit at room temperature and finish their rising before baking.
- Don’t want to bake anything? Bakeries and markets usually have some pretty special baked goods displayed, so pick some of those up if you want to save time!
- Do pancakes or waffles- everyone loves those!
- Don’t try a complicated recipe that you’ve never tried before. Nothing can be worse than a recipe not being successful on Christmas morning!
- Make mimosas or a sparkling non-alcoholic punch or eggnog to sip while opening gifts
