The Yummy Dozen

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
No matter what your holiday traditions are, it's pretty much guaranteed that Christmas morning is nuts. Exchanging gifts, putting together new contraptions, traveling to see loved's a busy morning.

But it's also a special morning, one where my typical breakfast of coffee and a Fiber One bar just doesn't seem quite celebratory enough.  And while its just Mr. M. and I at home on Christmas morning and, if I'm being honest, our Christmas morning breakfast usually consists of coffee and cookies (hey, it's a special day),  I've always thought that having something delicious to pop in the oven while we open gifts would be nice.

Maybe this year is the year that it will happen.  So just in case, I've put together a list of one dozen make-ahead Christmas morning breakfast ideas that sound divine!

And if I decide to just eat a bunch of cookies before noon instead of a formal breakfast.....well, that's OK too!

  1. All of the French Toast-y ones look awesome to me. My mom's neighbor always delivers a make ahead breakfast on Christmas Eve as a present. She's been doing this for probably 15-20 years! It's a French Toast like meal and it's delicious. I never have something that sweet for breakfast, but on Christmas morning I do! Ah, I love Christmas. :)

    1. That is such a cool thing to do for a neighbor! How sweet! Sounds delicious, too!

  2. Those look divine! My tradition is to have cinnamon buns. Those apple ones look like they wouldn't disappoint!

    P. S. If you're interested, I nominated you for a sunshine award. Pop over to my page for details.

    1. Thank you so much! That was very sweet of you! I'll certainly accept :)
