Christmas morning is a magical time for kids.
Your child’s anticipation from the night before has turned to pure excitement as they close in on the Christmas Tree. After the gifts are unwrapped everyone starts thinking ‘food’. Christmas Day is the perfect opportunity to make something just that little bit extra special. We’ve found some awesome, fun and kid-friendly brekky ideas that the whole family can enjoy.
This is as easy as it gets! It’s amazing how a simple recipe consisting of a stack of mini pancakes plus a strawberry and a marshmallow on top can start the day on a festive note.
Apologies to the pizza purists out there, but hear me out. This fruit pizza is literally holiday on a plate. Not to mention nutritious, delicious, and very easy to put together, too!
One of the first recipes that come to mind when we talk about breakfast is pancakes. It’s a no-brainer really — make Christmas-themed pancakes! There are no rules; just go crazy!
Breakfast pastries will no doubt steal the show (and may even take your kids’ attention from their new toys…momentarily). It’s also a nice excuse to eat dessert for breakfast — Christmas breakfast that is!
If your family hasn’t got the sweet tooth (if so, luck you!), then turn that store-bought puff pastry into a savoury recipe. Cheese and eggs are both breakfast staples, and I guarantee everyone will love these!
These breakfast bites may look simple, but I promise nothing’s going to be simple about its flavour. It’s very difficult to go wrong with the classic combination of dough, eggs, cheese, and bacon!
If you’re looking for something refreshing yet gorgeous and Instagram-worthy, you should make Christmas bananas! They’re really cute and will undoubtedly get everyone into the holiday spirit.
This is the perfect recipe to make if you’re looking for something healthy (it’s gluten-free and vegan) yet not boring! The fruits can be eaten by themselves, or you can also use them as topping for your waffles and pancakes.
Is there a better way to begin Christmas day than with something so absolutely hearty and filling? This recipe for ham and hash brown casserole takes creamy to the next level, and it only takes 6 ingredients to do it!
If taquitos aren’t your usual idea of breakfast, then Christmas Day must be the perfect time to try something new! It has cheese, sausage, and scrambled eggs — basically everything on your usual breakfast plate only baked inside a tortilla.
And can we have a Christmas recipe list without having at least one gingerbread entry? Make your kitchen smell like Christmas by preparing these gingerbread men pancakes.
Another gingerbread men entry, of course! If pancakes are not your jam (get it?) or if you just want to make something fancier, then here’s a recipe for gingerbread men french toast for you!
Oh yum, another excuse to eat a sweet treat during the first meal of the day! I guarantee that these Candy Cane Danish will turn your breakfast table into a Christmas fest in no time.
Did you forget to make a centrepiece recipe for your Christmas breakfast spread? You can assemble this Christmas Tree Danish at the last minute (literally) and your family will be none the wiser.
If these Christmas Tree crepes fail to give the atmosphere a jovial mood, I’m afraid nothing else will! These look absolutely gorgeous (but are easy to make!) and will light up the entire room.
Maybe you have a family favourite or a fail-safe go-to recipe for all those special occasions.
