How to Get Ready for Christmas Breakfast

Here are a few ideas to get Christmas breakfast prepped ahead of time. I like to do this on Christmas Eve (or the day before we’re serving the meal).

  1. Assemble breakfast. Consider your menu and prep or cook ahead any recipes you’re serving on Christmas morning. And have a game plan for the morning meal. I like to write a complete menu for the breakfast meal (as I often have many helpers in the kitchen that morning) and lay it in clear view.
  2. Set up a beverage station. The first stop on Christmas morning is the coffee station at our house, so be sure to get up your coffee maker the night before. If serving many guests, it helps to have an extra stainless-steel coffee carafe ready and waiting. For tea, set out sachets and sugar if needed. Also, consider setting up a hot cocoa bar for the younger ones (or the younger in heart!).
  3. Prep the buffet. If you’re serving a buffet, set out serving utensils, plates, and trivets or hot pads to protect counter surfaces from just-out-of-the-oven dishes. Don’t forget to set out napkins, breakfast plates, and eating utensils too. Come Christmas morning, you’ll be very grateful you took a few minutes to prep for this busy meal!

Christmas Brunch and Breakfast Recipes

Many of these recipes can be made ahead. Which is a great relief to the chief cook in the family. Which in my family, would be me. So I love easy and simple on Christmas morning!

At our house, we open stockings and gifts on Christmas morning, play Christmas music, and have extended family breakfast and dinner. Christmas cookies somehow fill the void in between!

Whether I’m looking for savory or sweet, there is something everyone will love in this collection of recipes and ideas.
