20 Christmas Morning Breakfast Recipes

Do you have any favorite Christmas morning breakfast recipes? or a tradition? We don’t, but I’d love to start one. Christmas morning is the one morning (besides Easter and Birthdays, obviously) that it’s perfectly fine to over-indulge in sweets and sugar. It’s my favourite meal of the day. If you’re in need of some ideas for what to make Christmas morning, here’s a few you might like.
