Christmas Morning Breakfast Ideas

December 21, 2018

The other night I asked for ideas on Instagram for Christmas Brunch and I don’t think I’ve ever had so many responses! So many of the same ideas: french toast bake, egg stratas, cinnamon rolls, monkey bread or bagel bars. Also some great other ideas I included below that were suggested. Someone also pointed me in the direction of this post on What’s Gaby Cooking with some delicious options!

I settled on the first French Toast bake below, a quiche, fruit salad and mimosas + coffee of course. My sister is making mini gingerbread scones, too! Yum! 


Baked Cinnamon Creme Brulee French Toast 

Lot’s of people also suggested Joanna Gaine’s  Overnight French Toast Recipe , and Ina Garten’s Baked French Toast Recipe.  

Funfetti Monkey Bread (how fun would this be with festive sprinkles??) 

Quiche Lorraine (skip the homemade crust & just buy one)!


Eggnog Cinnamon Rolls 

Many people suggested cinnamon rolls (one of our favorites)- you can make from a can or make the night before from scratch and let them rise in the fridge overnight. This eggnog cinnamon rolls recipe looks SO GOOD! 


Breakfast Strata With Caramelized Onions, Mushrooms & Goat Cheese

We love stratas in our family because you can make them the night before and they are a great savory alternative to quiche! 

Iowa Girl Eat’s Gluten Free Breakfast Casserole is apparently a crowd pleaser! 


Pinch of Yum’s Simple Oat & Pecan Blueberry Crisp – sounds easy, healthy & delish!
