Start a new tradition with our delicious Christmas breakfast ideas. We’ve got sweet treats, savory bites, and make-ahead casseroles to make Christmas calm and bright!

I argue that Christmas breakfast is one of the more difficult meals to figure out. Most of us want to spend Christmas morning hanging out with our loved ones around the Christmas tree instead of working hard in the kitchen. But also, Christmas is a special holiday, and it feels like you should have a special breakfast to mark the occasion!

If you’re stuck on the Christmas breakfast conundrum, we’re here to help! We’ve got you covered with tons of make-ahead Christmas breakfast ideas as well as a few easy, traditional breakfasts if you didn’t get a chance to plan ahead. We hope you’ll find a new tradition on this list!

What do you eat for Christmas breakfast?

I always prefer to rely on something I can make-ahead. It’s way more enjoyable to pop something in the oven and let it do the work while you enjoy Christmas morning with the family. Another option is to make a Christmas breakfast that whips together in just a few minutes. Let’s talk about our favorites!

Make-Ahead Christmas Breakfast Ideas

First, let’s talk about breakfast casseroles. These can all be prepped in advance and stashed in the fridge. On Christmas morning, just pop them in the oven. No need to hang out in the kitchen when you could be spending time with your family!

Another option is to choose a few things that you can prep entirely a day or two beforehand. When you’re ready for Christmas brunch, you just have to spoon things into bowls or move them to serving plates. Open up a jar of jam, and breakfast is served!
