Christmas is the perfect time for family togetherness, and few things bring families together like delicious comforting food. Set an atmosphere of warmth and joy this Christmas with one of these 10 mouthwatering (make-ahead – because who wants to be stuck in the kitchen on Christmas morning??) breakfasts for Christmas morning.

No other holiday sets the stage for family traditions like Christmas. The holiday season from Thanksgiving to Christmas is prime time for bringing the family together and enjoying each other’s company. And few things bring people together as well as food. So put the two together, and you, my friends, have the perfect recipe (hehe) for family togetherness.
Though family meals are good any time of the year (in fact, not long ago I wrote an entire post about the importance of regular family dinners), there’s just nothing like planning a special Christmas meal. Maybe it’s because the entire holiday is wrapped in wonder, or because everyone is filled with just a little more goodwill toward men. Or maybe it’s just because Christmas food is sooooo yummy.
Whatever the reason, I think Christmas is the perfect time to establish a traditional family meal. And I’m going to start that in my family this year by introducing a new tradition of a special Christmas morning breakfast.
However, I don’t want to have to cook much on Christmas morning, so I’ve been looking for make-ahead or crockpot breakfasts so that I am free to spend that time with my family.
Here are 10 of the most promising ones I found. I will be making my selection from this list and will update you on Facebook and Instagram, so be watching for that! (And if any of you have tried any on this list, PLEASE tell us about it in the comments below! I would love to hear about your experience!)

And having breakfast all ready to go so I don’t have to be stuck in the kitchen on Christmas morning? Priceless!
