Christmas Breakfast Recipes
The holidays promise some of the happiest, coziest family breakfasts of the year. These easy, make-ahead casseroles deliver comfort to the table and great joy to the cook.
Nothing's easier than heat-and-serve. Our hearty, healthy breakfast casseroles can be assembled the day before and refrigerated. Come Christmas morning—or any holiday morning—all you need to do is warm them in the oven. That leaves you to hang in your warm jammies and tear open presents while home-cooked aromas—warm cinnamon and sweet apples, smoky bacon and spicy sausage—fill your home.
A layer of sweet baked apples and crunchy pecan topping helps this breakfast bread pudding shine. Last-minute prep couldn't be simpler: Just add a dusting of sugar and nuts.
Serve this all-purpose side with any of our casseroles. Assemble the night before, but stir in and sprinkle with coconut just before serving. Omit the red pepper if you prefer a very mild mix.
If you like bread pudding you'll love this creamy, custard-rich treat. For a special finishing touch, dollop with whipped topping.
