Simplify your holiday meal planning with this easy make ahead Christmas breakfast idea and enjoy spending time with your family and friends.
I don’t know about you but the last thing I want to do is prepare a big breakfast on Christmas. After Christmas Eve festvities and planning a large holiday dinner for Christmas it’s so much easier to keep that early morning meal simple. Here’s how you can make an easy Christmas breakfast ahead of time.

It’s early Christmas morning, the kids are up at the crack of dawn, and mom and dad insist on coffee and a fire before presents and stockings. Oh and birthday cake. Yep, my birthday is on Christmas and this is usually how our Christmases go.
The last few years my husband and kids have started surprising me with a birthday cake first thing on Christmas even before stockings. Then after presents my husband makes french toast. It’s so much food before our big holiday meal I though this year I would take the work out of breakfast all together by setting up a breakfast station with danish and swedish treats and juice. We can graze on it through the entire holiday break and save the birthday cake for later. It’s more fun to eat it with my twin sister anyways.
Simply pick up some pre-made pastries or bake your favorites ahead of time and set out next to the coffee maker. Add a bowl of fruit, coffee mugs, juice, cups, plates, and napkins to make a special Christmas breakfast that’s super convenient.
For our Christmas breakfast treats I prepared a blueberry and cream cheese danish bread ahead of time and added raspberry filled cookies and sparkling juice. The pastries will keep on a covered dish for a few days and the juice and coffee creamer is ready to go straight from the fridge.
I really do like simple hosting tricks like this even if it’s just for our family to enjoy. Plus you will be prepared for any guests stopping by for coffee and sweets.
Now let’s go check out that delicious sounding recipe from Casa Watkins Living.
