One of my all-time favorite meals on Christmas is our family’s Christmas brunch. After little one’s have awoken (mine are quite early), we enjoy a convenient and delicious breakfast on this special holiday. Our brunch menu allows us to make-ahead mostly all of the casseroles, so we can spend our most time together with our family.
Every year, usually on Christmas morning, we gather on the farm and enjoy a feast of a brunch. There are savory and sweet casseroles, special drinks, and traditional Christmas breads. Most of the recipes have been passed down by dear grandmas and aunts and have been enjoyed for more years than we can remember. We pull out all the stops to celebrate the birth of our precious Savior.
Another wonderful aspect of our brunch menu is that most of the dishes are made in advance. Christmas Eve and Christmas morning are packed full of gifts, Church services, and other fun times with our family. Nobody has time to prepare a complicated menu, so these make-ahead recipes are especially convenient. Some of them can even be made weeks in advance and frozen.
Although it was tough to narrow all of the brunch favorites down, here are our top five favorite Christmas brunch recipes. We hope you can enjoy a few of them with your family this Christmas.
