Make-Ahead Christmas Breakfast Ideas
I love a holiday morning when the normal rules go out the window—and the last thing I want is to be stuck in the kitchen cooking while the rest of the family is having fun. So these make-ahead breakfast ideas are perfect for a holiday and are great to make ahead of time! Each feels special and yet doesn’t require fancy or fussy ingredients or cooking methods.
Each can be made 1-3 days ahead (or a little longer depending on the holiday) and can simply be warmed through and served. Pair these with some cut up fruit, your coffee or tea, and have a happy morning with the family.

Skip standing over the stove and bake up these yummy Eggnog French Toast Sticks in one fell swoop on a sheet pan. They make for a delicious family breakfast and they store well in the fridge or freezer for an easy-to-reheat holiday breakfast. (Not into Egg Nog? Here’s a Banana Baked French Toast option.)
