How to achieve a Stress Free Christmas Morning Breakfast

  • Keep the menu super simple!  It can be easy to want to make a handful of things to enjoy but don’t.  Keep your Christmas breakfast menu super simple and only make one or two things.  Almost everyone will be having another meal later, so don’t stress over making breakfast a 5 course feast.
  • Plan and shop ahead of time.  Waiting until the last minute to plan any part of your holiday menu can be stressful.  So be sure to take time before the holiday to finalize your menu and shop a couple of days ahead of time. 
  • Prep ahead when you can.  If there is something that can be prepped ahead of time…do it!  Set your table the night before so it is ready to go.  Bake items ahead of time and freeze them.  Assemble casseroles the night before and put them in the oven when you get up.  Do anything you can to make your Christmas morning simple.
  • Relax and Enjoy!  As wonderful as the holidays are, they also bring with it stress.  It is so important to relax and enjoy every last moment.
