With all the work involved to pull off this holiday, make ahead meals are a must, which is why we love to serve filling muffins with whole grains and oats, egg casseroles that can be assembled the night before, or pancakes that can be prepped and quickly mixed in the morning.

If you are anticipating the later feast, stick with lighter options like a winter fruit salad, fresh grapefruit, or a smoothie. On the other hand, this is a celebration, so if you find yourself fighting the urge to serve a decadent Christmas breakfast, you can always stick to smaller portions so your stomach isn’t stuffed when dinnertime rolls around.
