We place an emphasis on Christmas dinner and the traditions of gathering family and friends during the days leading to the holiday, but Christmas breakfast is often overlooked or thrown together at the last minute; it’s shoved aside to make room (in the fridge and your head space) for Christmas Eve and Day feasts.

Christmas breakfast doesn’t have to be overly complicated or lavishly decadent; it doesn’t have to be a difficult or arduous cooking affair — just make sure you put something good on the table.

This following recipe roundup serves up some solid breakfast options perfect for Christmas morning. Kicking off the roundup are a few brunchy cocktails to sip on post-coffee injection, followed by scores of festive recipes for French toast, egg dishes, and lighter breakfast options to help you save room for dinner.
