Christmas morning tends to be busy, but a festive Christmas breakfast/ brunch is the perfect opportunity for more memories and traditions! When I was a little girl, my mom always made egg and cheese strata, similar to this yummy Christmas Breakfast Casserole! Even though I generally had to be mega-coerced to set my new toys down and join the family for breakfast, that meal became an integral part of my Christmas morning memories. Whenever I smell my own strata baking, as my daughter opens her gifts every Christmas morning, I’m transported back to my own childhood Christmases. Are you looking for some ways to make your Christmas breakfast fun and memorable? Check out our 14 Festive Christmas Breakfast/ Brunch Ideas for inspiration!

From the time my daughter was little, I started the tradition of making her a new kind of Christmas pancake for breakfast each year (this began soon after I realized she didn’t entirely love my childhood tradition of egg and cheese strata).
