If you would rather spend Christmas morning making memories with your family (instead of cooking!), then pick one of these make ahead breakfasts for Christmas morning to make your holiday morning meal a breeze!
Looking ahead to Christmas morning I am so excited to make memories and share the excitement with the kids this year. With a three year old in the house, the Santa talk is ramped up and we are ready for a magical morning. Unfortunately for us, this magical morning will likely start somewhere around 5 am (the joys of early bird tots!). Who else is with me here?
No matter what time you rise and start the Holiday festivities, the last thing you want to do is slave away in the kitchen while everyone else is having fun. Preparing a breakfast ahead of time that can quickly be cooked or reheated come Christmas morning will keep you present for the presents with a full and happy tummy.
These 10 make ahead breakfasts for Christmas morning can all either be made ahead and reheated or prepared and refrigerated until Christmas morning when you are ready to quickly bake them and eat!
