You wake up to greet the family, take a peek at the presents under the tree, and look outside to see snow falling. Sounds like the perfect Christmas morning!
But part of what makes my Christmas mornings so special is being able to share a big breakfast with the ones I love… my family!
This year, everyone is gathering in our holiday home including my son Trevor, my husband Doug, my Mom, and my daughter Kylie who traveled all the way from Columbia, Missouri! So I plan on making a delicious Christmas morning breakfast for the whole crew to enjoy.
Want to take a look at a few recipes on this year’s list? Check out my favorites below. Oh… and I also included a BRAND NEW recipe at the bottom! Enjoy!
My Favorite Christmas Morning Breakfast Recipes
Whether you make them for Christmas morning or for a casual Sunday brunch, I hope you’ll love my go-to breakfast recipes and treats!
If you have some leftovers from the holidays, you can add them to this hearty recipe.
Quiche isn’t all that complicated. When you have a good foundation, you can change it up depending on what you have lying around the house.
In this one, I use roasted veggies, diced ham, and three types of cheese. The crispiness of the crust makes every bite even more delicious!
Find the full recipe and ingredient list HERE.
Here’s another quiche recipe that uses bacon instead of ham.
The funny thing is that this recipe was actually born out of necessity. I had some leftover broccoli from a previous meal and a few eggs that I needed to use… but this ended up turning out GREAT!
Another great part about both of my quiche recipes? You can use frozen pie crust to save some time. HERE is the recipe.
If you like to add cheese to your eggs, I know you’ll love this Christmas morning breakfast dish!
It’s called my chili cheese egg bake and it only requires three simple steps. I actually like to serve it as an appetizer as well… just top it with guacamole, salsa, and sour cream. YUM!

Onto the sweets! These pancakes quite honestly taste more like a dessert than a breakfast recipe. But am I complaining? Of course not!
Topped with a flavorful cinnamon cider sauce, these pancakes are super fluffy and filled with fresh apples. Here’s a hint… make some extra cider suace and dip your bacon in it. Trust me!
HERE are all of the ingredients you’ll need.
I adore muffins, but they aren’t always the healthiest Christmas morning breakfasst. Luckily, my recipe is low-fat and lighter than most.
The trick for this recipe is that I substitute applesauce in place of the oil. It keeps them moist without all of the calories and fat! I’m not lying when I say that they’re just as flavorful as the regular ones!

These super easy energy bites might not be a classic breakfast recipe, but they’ll make a welcome addition to your Christmas morning table!
Filled with oats, peanut butter, and flax seeds, these bite-sized treats are pretty filling. I also added chocolate chips, honey, and coconut flakes, for some extra flavor that makes them borderline addictive…
Take a look at the instructions for making them HERE.
I love making this recipe not only because it’s delicious, but because it was one of my mom’s favorite treats to bring to parties and gatherings.
It’s kind of like a cinnamon coffee cake so there’s really no going wrong with it. The best part? It uses a box of yellow cake mix which helps cut down on the time it takes to make it during the holidays.
Another fun fact: My Mom and I baked it together on QVC years ago. It was so fun doing something we loved together! HERE is the recipe.
This large coffee cake can feed up to 26 people! It’s swirrled with cinnamon streusel and it’s made with only fresh ingredients.
While it probably won’t arrive before Christmas, it’s a great breakfast to have in the New Year!
Here’s another breakfast offering from the Just Jill Shop.
It’s not called the breakfast extravaganza for no reason… it includes 6 POUNDS of meats including sausage, bacon, and breakfast links. Each item is also made with 100% certified pure heirloom Berkshire pork for some extra-delicious flavor.
Like the coffee cake above, I can’t be sure it will arrive before Christmas, but the meats can be frozen for up to 180 days.
