One of my personal favorite parts of the holiday season is coming up with breakfasts for Christmas morning. Christmas morning is such a fun time. Everyone’s happy and excited, despite the fact that you’re awake before the sun is and you don’t have to be. There’s something so magical about Christmas morning, and I think that these breakfasts for Christmas morning will just make your holiday season even more special!
1. Christmas-themed Pancakes
If you want to be festive but aren’t a fan of typical holiday flavors like cinnamon or peppermint, these pancakes are perfect for you! Pick out your favorite Christmas cookie cutters and place them on your griddle. Pour your pancake batter into the well-greased cookie cutters and you’ll have a festive Christmas breakfast in no time! Whether you have small kids or not, everyone will be impressed with these pancakes. In fact, these are one of my favorite, easy breakfasts for Christmas morning!
2. Crockpot Hot Chocolate
It’s not Christmas morning without a nice, hot drink as you open Christmas presents with your family. Rather than spending the time trying to make drinks for a ton of different people, make hot chocolate in a crockpot. Not only will it save you a ton of time and let you spend more time with your family, but it will also be the best hot chocolate you’ve ever had. It will be creamy and comforting, which is exactly what you want on Christmas morning!
3. Cinnamon French Toast Bake
If your family loves French toast but you don’t want to get up before the sun, this is the perfect Christmas breakfast to make. It can be prepared the night before but your family will think you spent all night working on it, because that’s how much they’ll love this Christmas breakfast dish!
4. Red Velvet Pancakes
Red velvet pancakes are the perfect, decadent breakfast for a holiday as important as Christmas. Plus, when you pair the red pancakes with cream cheese icing, you’ll get a gorgeous effect that looks festive and tastes awesome!
5. Monkey Bread Muffins
Monkey bread is a holiday staple in a ton of households, but some people don’t love the amount of work monkey bread requires. Luckily, that doesn’t have to keep you from baking monkey bread this Christmas. Instead, turn the monkey bread into muffins by coating biscuit dough in cinnamon and sugar and baking them in muffin tins. Your family will love the monkey bread and you’ll love how easy it was to make!
6. Cinnamon Roll Christmas Tree
Everyone loves cinnamon rolls. There’s no getting around that. To give them a festive touch on Christmas morning, place them into a Christmas tree shape. The presentation will win you extra points with everyone, whether your audience is 7 or 70!
7. Breakfast Pizza
If you’re not so big on sweet breakfasts, this savory route just might be perfect for you. Create a breakfast pizza of sorts, making a pizza out of crescent dough and your favorite savory breakfast foods, like eggs, sausage, bacon, or anything else you love to eat for breakfast. If you really want to go big for Christmas, you could even create a breakfast pizza bar and everyone could make his or her own creations!
8. Eggnog Coffee Cake Muffins
These sweet muffins are all anyone could hope for on Christmas morning. The crumbly topping pairs perfectly with the fluffy muffin. If you love eggnog, but find that drinking it for breakfast isn't socially acceptable, these muffins should solve that problem for you.
9. Lemon Cream Cheese Stuffed French Toast with Blueberry Compote
Looking for something a bit more gourmet? This stuffed French toast is pretty easy to make, but looks like you slaved for hours. The combination of blueberry and lemon is perfect to get your Christmas Day started just right.
