With a full agenda of gathering around the tree to unwrap gifts, you’ll want to add these easy, hearty, and warming dishes to your Christmas brunch menu.

Our All-Time Favorite Christmas Morning Recipes
Iain Bagwell

There’s nothing like seeing the joy on children’s faces Christmas morning, unless it’s seeing the look of relaxation on a harried parent’s face when they’re handed a glass of something sparkling and a plate of hot food on the 25th

Christmas day breakfast or brunch is a delightful holiday tradition but it can be hard to put together a full-on meal on top of all the hosting, wrapping, decorating, and last-minute shopping that happens Christmas week. Make it easy on yourself with any of these recipes. Like the holiday season itself, they’re indulgent. But instead of adding a task to your Christmas Eve or morning-of to-do list, these dishes will lessen your morning stress, because much of the work can be done ahead of time. So don’t be a Grinch this year; give your family (and yourself) the gift of a special breakfast treat like crabcake eggs benedicta salmon breakfast burrito, or an exuberantly puffy Dutch baby pancake. It will surely land you on Santa’s “Nice” list for next year.
