Tips for Planning Your Christmas Breakfast
Plan your menu. Knowing what you want to make a few days in advance makes it a lot easier to know what to buy and when to get started. This also gives you enough time to figure out when you want to eat and when to get everything cooked. Your oven will be busy later, so getting a cooking timeline for the day can help keep things running more smoothly!
Prep what you can in advance. If you need cut veggies or cooked sausage to start the recipe and you plan to make it on the day of- brown the meat and cut the veggies the night before.
Take note of what's fridge or freezer friendly. Some meals can be fully made in advance and then just reheated later!
Set the table the night before. If you plan to make a winter wonderland in your dining room, setting it up the night before can help cut down on time spent in the morning. Note that I do not recommend this to everyone, especially those with playful cats.
Alternatively, you can gather everything in one place and draw up a template of how you want it to look, so you aren't "flying blind on Christmas morning."
