Our house has always had a lot of activity on Christmas morning. From the kids opening their gifts, to the never ending assembly of toys and setting up the newest electronic devices, breakfast was the last thing that we had time to prepare.

We began the tradition of making overnight breakfast recipes many years ago so that we could enjoy the hustle and bustle of Christmas morning.

Below are our ‘go-to’ Christmas breakfast recipes that we actually prepare the day before. All that is left is either baking the dish or just opening the slow-cooker and eating!

Overnight Christmas Breakfast Recipes

1. Slow-Cooker Breakfast Casserole

Make this slow-cooker casserole in the evening and when you wake up, breakfast is ready!

This Christmas breakfast recipe is made by layering hash browns, meat, cheese and eggs with a few delicious spices. Turn it on before you go to bed and the aroma of a farm fresh breakfast will fill your house in the morning.  Whenever you are ready, just serve and enjoy!


2. French Toast Casserole

Looking for a recipe that is easy to prepare and a breakfast classic?

French toast made with thick slices of bread dipped in egg wash and seasoned with cinnamon and vanilla is a go to recipe for many people any day of the week. This year, make it ahead of time and let all those flavors meld together in the refrigerator overnight. In the morning, throw your Christmas breakfast in the oven and you will be ready to eat in 45 minutes without any additional work!

3. Cinnamon Rolls Recipe

Who can deny a homemade, freshly baked cinnamon roll on Christmas morning?

This recipe allows you to prepare the dough and filling (and even the icing) a day or two ahead of time and refrigerate until ready to bake.  On Christmas morning, just pull the unbaked cinnamon rolls out of the fridge and let rise while you are opening presents. When you are ready, throw them in a pre-heated oven and your Christmas breakfast will be hot and have the house smelling delicious in no time!

This is definitely a favorite recipe for everyone!


4. Monkey Bread Recipe

We have been making this recipe for over 20 years now and in our house it is a must for Christmas Breakfast!

With a little help from frozen balls of bread dough and butterscotch pudding mix, this recipe is easy to throw together Christmas Eve. Just let the dough thaw and rise overnight on your counter. In the morning let it bake while you open your presents.

We make ours in a bundt pan for a beautiful presentation, although, it is gone in minutes!


5. Baked Breakfast Casserole

This is our original overnight Christmas breakfast casserole recipe. Just prepare the ingredients, refrigerate overnight and bake in the morning.

This recipe is held together with both eggs and bread and is soaked overnight with your breakfast meat of choice, onions, peppers and cheese. Of course, you could add in other vegetables such as mushrooms, spinach, or whatever you and your family love.

Pull it out of the fridge in the morning, and in about 30 minutes, breakfast is on the table!
