The second thing on everyone’s mind when they wake up on Christmas morning is breakfast.
Because, obviously, what Santa brought is the first thing.
Especially if you’ll be entertaining guests overnight, prepping for Christmas morning breakfast or brunch is crucial to having a smoothly running holiday.
When my kids were still at home, we were a divided house; my husband and daughter wanted sweets and pastries, but my son and I wanted savory. I usually make a few dishes so everybody can have a little of several things while opening gifts.
Christmas morning needs to linger; it’s something children everywhere anticipate all year long.
Parents look forward to the special moments like having Christmas morning brunch and sharing memories of past holidays, watching the kids’ faces light up when they see what Santa brought them, and hanging customized ornaments made by the children on the tree.
There is something for just about everybody on my list, from sweets to savory.
