Yummy Christmas Breakfast Ideas

I love breakfast!  I could eat breakfast food every meal of the day.   Every year my mom makes an egg, cheese, and sausage casserole on Christmas that the entire family loves.  I thought I would share some easy breakfast dishes.  Most of them can be made the night before.  Maybe they will help you plan your Christmas breakfast.

Make Ahead Egg Casserole Recipe 

  • 6 slices bread
  • 1 lb. sausage
  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 6 eggs
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 tsp. salt

Cook sausage and drain.  Set aside.  Spray bottom of casserole dish.   Break bread into small pieces.  Spread sausage over top of the bread.  Sprinkle with the grated cheese.  In separate bowl, mix eggs, milk and salt.  Pour over sausage, bread and cheese.  Place in refrigerator overnight.  Take out 1 hour before you are ready to bake.  Bake 45 minutes at 350 degrees.

I also found this recipe on Saveur.  It looks delicious and simple.  My kind of recipe:)  I might even add spinach to it.

Baked Fruit Casserole
I had to include something somewhat healthy and you can’t go wrong with fruit.  This hot fruit dish is really yummy.  It can be served for breakfast and for dinner.

  • 1 (16 oz.) can peaches
  • 1 (16 oz.) can pears
  • 1 (16 oz.) can pineapple
  • 1 (15 oz.) can of apricotts (You can use any canned fruit that you prefer)
  • 1 tbsp. cornstarch
  • 2 tbsp. brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp. curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg

Drain fruit, saving 1/2 cup of pinapple juice and place in casserole dish.  Mix pineapple juice, brown sugar, corn starch, and spices. Pour over fruit.  Bake uncovered at 375 degrees for about 45 minutes or until bubbly.  Best made the night before and reheated at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Can also be prepared the night before and baked in the morning.

Santa and Rudolph Pancakes
I came across these cute pancakes while searching for fun Christmas breakfast ideas.  I can’t wait to make these with Connor and my nephew this weekend.  We might have to make them Christmas Eve and Christmas morning.  I think the kids and adults will enjoy this treat.
What are you planning on making for breakfast over the holidays?  Share some of your favorite breakfast recipes.  Link back to your recipes.  I love trying new things.
