The Ultimate Christmas Breakfast Bakes for 2023

Looking for something special to bake for your friends and family on Christmas morning? You’ve come to the right place! In this fun post my food blogging buddies share 75 of their favorite breakfast treats, perfect for the holidays!

Christmas Mornings are the Best!

There’s something so magical about Christmas morning! You can sense the anticipation in the air. Children’s giggles and squeals sound across the house, waking the old folks and stirring everyone to action.

“It’s Christmas! Time to open those gifts!”

Somewhere along the way, though. . .they’ve got to eat.

Now, I don’t know about you, but I’m not a morning person. Not even close. Every time I’m asked to provide foods for an early morning event I get overwhelmed right away. The idea of getting up early and baking doesn’t hold a lot of appeal.

That said, there are a few days a year that I don’t mind it. When family and friends are gathered ’round for holiday celebrations, for instance. Or on those special days when you’re all together on holiday. What fun, to prep for special days like that! And the scents of those breakfast foods wafting from the kitchen only adds to the joy of the holiday!

What’s Your Christmas Morning Tradition?

In our family, I would bake cinnamon rolls and make hot chocolate, which we would enjoy as we opened our gifts.

Some families open their stockings, then eat breakfast before diving into the bigger gifts.

Some folks open all the gifts with no food on their minds at all, only to gobble down a big meal after-the-fact.

No matter how (or when) you set the table on Christmas morning, what you place on it is key. You want foods that remind the kids (and kids at heart) just how special and magical that day can be.

The Recipes in this Post

With Christmas rapidly approaching, I went on a trek across the internet to several blogging friends, asking their opinion on Christmas morning bakes that would be perfect for this year.

They came up with quite the list, let me tell you! I’m tempted to bake a bunch of these! No matter which one(s) you choose for your big day, your guests are sure to leave happy and full.

And now, without further ado, let’s make some Christmas morning bakes!

The Reason for the Season

Before we go, I want to take a moment to remind you of the reason for the season: Jesus, the Christ child, came as a babe in a manger, the King of heaven, come to earth as a tiny babe!

To learn more about that story, several writing friends and I have created a little devotion called The Road to Bethlehem, which you can listen to on YouTube. You can even download your own copy from my author site!

That’s it for this post, friends! I hope you enjoyed these delicious Christmas morning breakfast bakes, perfect for your family and friends.
