With all the focus on the main Christmas meal, sometimes breakfast can be an afterthought. Below are 10 Easy Christmas Morning Breakfast that are a breeze to whip up and taste delicious! No need to spend the entire day in the kitchen when you can drum up a batch of easy sheet pan eggs or a scrumptious make ahead breakfast french toast!

Tips for easy Christmas breakfast foods

  1. Keep pancakes warm in the oven if cooking for a crowd. Place pancakes on a baking sheet, on a wire rack, at around 200F in the oven until you’re ready to serve them. This temperature keeps the pancakes warm without continuing to cook them.
  2. Freeze waffles for a quick and easy breakfast. Make a batch of waffles before the big day, allow them to cool, then place in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet, freeze for two hours. Then place the waffles in freezer safe bags. Warm up in the oven or toaster when ready. Serve with sides of fruit and syrup.
  3. Go for pre chopped veggies and fruit. Buying pre-washed and pre-cut vegetables is one of the simplest ways to save time and frees up much needed counter space!
  4. Freeze your butter! There’s nothing like waiting for your butter to come up to room temp, especially on Christmas morning. Just pop your butter in the freezer the night before and grate it into your dough mix, it’s quick, easy and is more evenly distributed!
