Popular Christmas Breakfast and Brunch Recipes

Tumbling out of bed in the wee hours of Christmas morning means that by the time all of the gifts are opened, most of the family has worked up an impressive appetite. Refuel for the day ahead by serving up a traditional Christmas breakfast. With just a little planning, you can do most of the menu as a make-ahead, so you can give your loved ones a delicious spread on this iconic holiday morning -- streusel coffee cake, a cheesy sausage and egg breakfast casserole or a hash-brown strata -- without any early morning stress. Just wade through the discarded wrapping paper, pour yourself a cup of coffee, and enjoy.
