Christmas morning tends to be busy, but my family definitely makes a point of sitting down and sharing breakfast together. These 14 Festive Christmas Breakfast/ Brunch Ideas to Make This Year, are some of our favorites!
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.

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). It’s just as exciting as opening her presents, because every year, I make a different Christmas pancake creation!
