45 Recipe Ideas for Christmas Morning Breakfast on RachelCooks.com

Can you believe Christmas morning will be here before we know it? I was at a cookie exchange with my friends a couple of nights ago and it dawned on me that Christmas is nearly here! I need to get my act in gear. I’m planning N’s first birthday party (alreadddddy) — and I’m having a hard time thinking beyond that. We’re throwing his party four days before Christmas. Totally normal. No big deal. (EEEEEEK!)

Anyways — Christmas morning breakfast is so special. A time to slow down, eat a decadent meal in your pajamas, listen to Christmas music. Open stockings and spend quiet time with immediate family before running off to events and parties. I love Christmas morning. A lot.

Now I just need to decide what to make. I hope this list helps you decide as well.

    Holy cow.. do you deliver? I want all of these for Christmas morning and I’ll eat until I’m full. :)

      Haha no way! Anything that I manage to make quickly gets eaten here ;) It would be fun to have a Christmas morning breakfast potluck with bloggers — maybe not ON Christmas morning but a belated one would be so fun! :)

    • Rachel Gurk — December 15th, 2013 @ 7:26 pm

      Sounds like a wonderful tradition! I’m thinking about making some this year. Either that or cinnamon rolls :)

    I luckily don’t have to cook Christmas breakfast… but if I did, I’d make one of each of these. For reals.
