These 2 easy breakfast ideas for Christmas day will help feed your family and provide some fun too!
How do you handle Christmas Day at your house? Is it all planned out to the minute or total chaos and a free for all? I know one thing is for sure, you have to have something prepared to eat. Even though the kids will want to play and have fun they will also get hungry. We usually do something simple like these 2 ideas I have below.
Breakfast Ideas for Christmas Day
Turn pancakes into reindeer! Here’s my simple mom tip. Instead of making homemade pancakes (which my kids totally love and we use this yummy recipe!) but on a day that is so crazy like this we use our favorite frozen pancakes and they are just as good. You can fry bacon or use microwave bacon for the antlers and add some candy eyes and a red nose!
This was really simple to make and the kids love it!
Cinnamon Roll Tree
This has to be one of the easiest breakfast ideas for Christmas Day but it’s still delicious! The rolls are totally out of a can but who cares, right? It’s simple and that’s what you need on Christmas Day. All you have to do is cook the rolls like the directions then place them in the shape of a tree. I used 2 cans of 5 to make my tree. You can even go a step farther and make the icing green with food coloring but my kids for some reason don’t like green icing. We keep ours really simple and with a side of fruit, we are good to go.
You could even make these the night before and just reheat the morning of if you want to. I like to make mine the morning of because they really don’t take too long and I love the smell of cinnamon rolls!
And as you can see my kids go for these fast!
Speaking of rolls…. if you have an instant pot (which I don’t!!!!) You have to try Aileen’s Cinnamon Roll recipe in the instant pot! This would be a good thing to make for Christmas morning too!
If you want something to munch on this is a yummy fruit and cheese tray is fun to put together and easy too! All you need is some different kinds of fruit and both colors of grapes! It takes a little patience putting it together once you get everything ready you just start assembling and then keep going. Finally, use rosemary or something green to garnish.
