My favorite Christmas mornings are those spent in my pajamas surrounded by family. Even way back in high school, I remember cherishing those moments and doing everything I could not to get dressed before noon; including enticing family with homemade Christmas morning casseroles. For some reason, putting the casseroles together the night before makes them taste even better, if that’s possible.
And with gifts to give and new toys to enjoy, it makes sense to keep breakfast or brunch as simple as possible and serve yummy food that can be made ahead or in a slowcooker so the hard work is done for you. In fact, I have our Christmas morning quiches in the freezer right now; I made them a few weeks ago and I’ll defrost them overnight on Christmas so they’re ready to cook the next morning. This season is already super busy, so anything that can be prepped ahead is a win in my book. Here’s 20 delicious make-ahead recipes for you to enjoy!
