Thanks, Foodie, for sponsoring this post filled with Christmas Breakfast Recipes!
As you get older, you don't need the pile of presents you needed as a kid to feel the magic of Christmas. Presents are still fun, but you start to realize other traditions hold even more of the charm of the season. One of my favorite holiday traditions these days is Christmas breakfast. My mom makes a big pan of amazing cinnamon rolls and another big pan of Egg & Grits casserole. My mother-in-law makes this incredible Breakfast Pie with eggs and hot sausage. The day wouldn't feel complete without that indulgent first meal.
To help make your Christmas morning breakfast extra special, I've collected all of my best breakfast recipes below. I've even broken them down into categories to help you find your perfect meal: make-ahead recipes, fancy recipes, simple recipes, and fun recipes. Which best describes your Christmas morning mood?
