40 Breakfast and Brunch Ideas for Christmas Morning

Happy Sunday! I hope you’re enjoying this last weekend before Christmas. I’ve been baking and doing some last-minute online shopping, but overall it’s been surprisingly relaxing. Shane and I have been squeezing in as many holiday movies as possible too; so far we’ve watched Love Actually, Die Hard, Elf, and The Muppet Christmas Carol. Other recommendations for us? This time of year really is the best.

Do you have any Christmas morning traditions? Our plans change from year to year but we’ll be home for breakfast this year and I’m definitely planning to make something special. Because calories don’t count on Christmas, right? :) In case you’re planning to do the same, I’ve gathered some of my favorite sweet and savory recipe ideas for you. So many choices, good thing I still have a few days left to make a decision…
