What to Eat Christmas Morning (12 Recipes)

This article is for information only and doesn’t call for any action.

After the blizzard of wrapping paper quiets, a cozy (but casual!) brunch is one of my favorite Christmas traditions. Everyone is in good spirits and happy to celebrate together. My family typically does a Christmas dinner later in the day, but having a little something special in the morning is always welcome. That said, preparing for the holidays can be tiring, and everyone appreciates recipes you’re able to prep ahead of time – which is (thankfully) a lot of breakfast recipes. Here are a dozen recipes to consider for Christmas morning – a little mix of both naughty and nice. 😉 xx, -h

1. Green Shakshuka (Bon Appétit) Probably not what your 7-year-old wants to see on her plate, but it will bring a smile to the faces of grown-ups, especially if they’ve had one too many glasses of prosecco on Christmas eve.

2. The Best Waffle Recipe (101 Cookbooks) My friends and family might be tired of these. But, seriously, they are so good. These waffles are a year-round go-to, and perfect for Christmas morning. Setting up a waffle bar with toppings is always a hit.

3. Breakfast Baked Sweet Potato (Ambitious Kitchen) This one’s a wild card – a baked sweet potato for breakfast? I get that not everyone is going to be on board, but it’s such good for you food with the almond butter and bananas. Maybe a dollop of Nutella to convince the younger eaters?

10. Heuvos a la Plaza de Mercado (Sprouted Kitchen / Tara O’Brady) Sara’s version of Tara’s recipe is a reminder to let your friends and family bring their influences to your table. Make the red sauce and the charred green onion dressing (!) a day or so ahead of time and it’s much easier to put this one together on Christmas morning.

11. Coconut Baked Oatmeal (101 Cookbooks) There are certain recipes people tell me (in person) are their favorites and this is one of them. I think the reason is the coconut and grapefruit elevates oatmeal beyond basic.
