Ever since Phoebe was born, we’ve invited both our families to join us bright and early at our house on Christmas Day for gift unwrapping and a big festive breakfast. There’s nothing cozier than lazing around in pajamas until noon, sipping cocoa out of a big holiday mug, and playing with whatever new toys were wrapped up under the tree (and by “toys,” I mean cookbooks and jewelry if I’m lucky.)
The centerpiece to our breakfast is always my mom’s famous Almond Kringle straight out of the oven, and I usually make a big fruit salad, crispy bacon, and mimosas to pair with it.
In that vein, today I’ve rounded up 20 show-stopping Christmas morning breakfast recipes that are sure to be the piéce de resistance to any morning holiday gathering—whatever that looks like for you this year! Although I couldn’t resist throwing in just one chia seed parfait, the rest are sufficiently indulgent to feel like once-a-year treats. Click through and prepare to pin…
