Christmas Breakfasts for Any Scenario and Crowd Size

For every question we get about Christmas dinner, we get three about Christmas breakfast. Our new favorite breakfast and brunch recipes work for a variety of holiday hosting scenarios: a big crowd with an accompanying list of dietary restrictions and requests, feeding kids, and an easy meal for two.

  • Tex-Mex Breakfast Taco Bar

    Tex-Mex Breakfast Taco Bar

    For a big crowd of people who all eat different things.

    The breakfast taco bar is the ultimate choose-your-own-adventure meal. It’s great when you’re hosting a bunch of people who all have different tastes and dietary needs (we’ve included alternative ingredient suggestions). There are a lot of components here, but you can cherry-pick your favorite fixings if you don’t want to go all out. Many of these ingredients come ready-made at the grocery store (tortillas, organic refried beans, salsas), and the rest is pretty easy to prep (roasted sweet potatoes, sautéed peppers and onions, scrambled eggs).


  • Gingerbread Waffles

    Gingerbread Waffles

    For a healthyish sweet breakfast kids will love.

    Gingerbread-flavored waffles deliver all the festive vibes of the holidays with minimal effort. They’re fun to make with kids. And between the ganache, coconut whipped cream, and lemon-ginger compound butter, there’s bound to be a topping to make everyone—kids and adults alike—very happy.


  • Eggs in Purgatory

    Eggs in Purgatory

    For a low-key breakfast for two that still feels special.

    Warm and comforting, but so, so easy: This dish is great if it’s just two of you for Christmas but you still want to do something that feels celebratory.
