20 Make Ahead Breakfasts | foodiecrush.com

You don’t actually have to slave away in the kitchen all morning on Christmas day to enjoy a decadent breakfast or brunch. It is totally possible to have a relaxing, leisurely meal on Christmas morning without barely lifting a finger.

Twas the night before…

These recipes require all of the prep the night before, so all you have to do in the AM is turn on your oven. Your impressed family will think the elves did it. You can savor watching the kiddos open their presents, stay in your pajamas until noon (at the very least), and enjoy more of the magic that is Christmas morning.

All I want for Christmas is some Le Creuset…

Start your make-ahead breakfasts with a little jingle for your jangles. Let Santa know you want to add some dash to your breakfast making routine with these 6 kitchen essentials.
