When planning a nice Christmas gathering, we may not think much about breakfast. And yet when the big day arrives, it’s so nice to wake up to something special—nourishing but not overwhelming. Here are 10 recipes.
Most of the following recipes take about 30 minutes to prepare and another hour to cook.
- The oven hash, casserole, and strata are assembled the day before, refrigerated, and baked the next morning.
- The quiche and salmon in pastry are baked ahead and served the next day, reheated in the oven if you wish.
You can bake most of the above recipes in Pyrex (heat-tempered glass) or ceramic dishes. Remove them from the refrigerator and let them sit at room temperature for about 20 to 30 minutes to reduce the possibility of breakage from the sudden change in temperature when you bake or reheat them.
Best of all, they won’t fill the sink with pots and pans just when you want to wash cranberries, and they won’t monopolize the stovetop when you need it for something else.

Christmas Breakfast Casserole
Eggs, sausage, bread and cheese in one dish! Just mix up the ingredients the night before, then leave a note for the first person up to put it in the oven. By the time everyone is up and coffee is made, breakfast will be ready.
