15 Easy Christmas Brunch Recipes

With Christmas fast approaching, you may be looking for easy Christmas brunch recipes. Growing up, Christmas brunch was almost as special as opening presents for me. My mom went all out during Christmas, and she always made sure we had an amazing brunch spread so we could leisurely nosh all morning long.

We always had quiche, cinnamon rolls, coffee cake, and more for Christmas brunch. So, I love preparing Christmas brunch now, and even more so since I sold the bake shop. As when I owned a bakery, Christmas was usually nonexistent as far as celebrating because I was too busy making sure other people’s holidays were special. I never had time to make my own special.

But, now that I do have time and can spend a leisurely Christmas morning, I am very much looking forward to making a Christmas brunch spread for myself and Delaney. Find my favorite 15 Easy Christmas Brunch Recipes below.

1. Holiday Eggnog Waffles

Waffles are such an indulgent breakfast, and they are perfect for the holidays when you have a little extra time to stand around the waffle iron and watch them come to life. I use Organic Valley Eggnog in these amazing Holiday Eggnog Waffles!

2. Homemade Cinnamon Rolls

Nothing says the holidays like warm Homemade Cinnamon Rolls fresh out of the oven. The soft and ooey-gooey centers are bursting with cinnamon and sweet glaze. My recipe for homemade Cinnamon Rolls will take you down memory lane. This recipe for Homemade Cinnamon Rolls can be prepped the day before down to everything besides baking them. Once they are cut and in the dish, place a piece of plastic wrap over the top, and put the dish in the fridge. The following morning, preheat your oven and remove the dish from the fridge while it preheats, bake off and enjoy!

3. Ham & Cheese Rolls with Honey Butter

The ultimate savory brunch combination is ham and cheese. I use a brioche dough to roll up leftover ham, Swiss cheese, garlic, and parsley – and they are topped with a brush of honey butter.

8. Chocolate Donut Pound Cake

My Chocolate Donut Pound Cake is amazing for any brunch because it can be made ahead of time and it lasts really well inside a cake dome. Plus, you could even add a festive topping like organic candy canes or India Tree’s Nature’s Colors Peppermint Crunch!

9. Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake

No brunch is complete without coffee cake, and my classic Cinnamon Swirl Coffee Cake is just what everyone wants on Christmas morning. This moist and delicious coffee cake can easily be made ahead of time. You can bake the cake the night before, and even glaze it. Let it sit in the pan overnight (the crumble top actually seals in the cake and prevents it from drying out!). Just remove it the next morning and serve it up!

12. Apple Cheddar Bacon Quiche

We had quiche every single Christmas morning, it was something that was easy to reheat and it tastes just as amazing reheated as it does when it’s freshly baked. I always prepare quiche the day before, and stick in the fridge overnight. Then, when it’s time to serve it all you have to do is heat it up in the oven at 350°F for about 5 to 10 minutes, until it’s warm. Try my Apple Cheddar Bacon Quiche this Christmas.

13. Coffee Cake Muffins

I love muffins because you can easily make them ahead of time and stick them in a cake dome and they will keep for a couple days. These Coffee Cake Muffins can be prepped a day in advance, and left on a cake dome on your counter. They make for an amazing centerpiece as well!

14. Roasted Rosemary Potatoes

These Roasted Rosemary Potatoes make a great savory addition to any brunch. You can even make them for Christmas Eve dinner, and just serve the leftovers for brunch. You can easily heat up these as leftovers in your air fryer, toaster oven, or regular oven!

15. Chocolate Sweet Rolls

If you like cinnamon rolls, then I really urge you to try my Chocolate Sweet Rolls. These are a take on cinnamon rolls, but filled with Dutch cocoa powder and sugar as opposed to cinnamon and sugar. They are less sweet than traditional cinnamon rolls. And for the chocolate lover, they are truly the best!
