Christmas morning breakfast is the Grand Entrance to the best day of the year. It's that ONE morning of the year where the magic in the air takes us away from the everyday and into a storybook.
All my boys enjoying a Christmas morning breakfast
at my parent's home on a Christmas past.
Making breakfast special on Christmas morning is one of my loves.
Traditions are often used for this meal! We have a tradition of homemade cinnamon rolls with homemade cream cheese frosting on this breakfast. A lot of people share this tradition! I make them a day or two in advance and freeze until Christmas.
Another Christmas breakfast tradition I started when I got married
was taping hidden lotto tickets under our breakfast plates
for everyone to scratch off when they clean their plate.

My mom prepares an egg casserole for Christmas morning.
It makes the house smell divine and is a super start to our day.
Serving breakfast casseroles is also a tradition that a lot of people share!
I found a gem on Pinterest with a resource of 34 Christmas breakfast casseroles!
Those are just a handful of our Christmas breakfast traditions.
I would LOVE to know some of yours!
Now I have some new ideas as you sit down to the table...
We had a December breakfast last week that
I think would be IDEAL for Christmas morning.
These baby crustless tarts were
dotted with RED & GREEN for the holiday.
Red Peppadews and green onions
I recently discovered Peppadew peppers at our local grocery store's fresh pepper and olive bar. They are from South Africa and have a mildly sweet flavor. These peppers are often served as appetizers, stuffed with goat cheese. I wanted to use them in our egg tarts to add some holiday color to our meal.
I made crustless tarts, but you can easily prepare them with a thin bottom crust as well. Mix 1 cup skim milk into 5-6 beaten eggs. Add chopped green onions, chopped Peppadew peppers, shredded Havarti cheese, a few drops of Green Tabasco, salt, pepper, and garlic salt. Bake at 375 F until eggs are firm throughout.
Tarts are an excellent option for Christmas morning breakfast because they can be served at room temperature so you can prepare them ahead and save time in the kitchen on the best morning of the year!
Jam Pastry Straws make the perfect pair with egg tarts! I found these beautiful straws on....(you know it!)....Pinterest!
These are extra simple to make.

These are just a handful of some of our
Christmas morning breakfast traditions,
and some new ideas too.

I posted earlier this month for holiday brunch table styling.
I would love to know some of YOUR
special traditions too.
Only a few more days until we ALL wake up
to our own special smells of holiday breakfasts.
