Christmas Day Brunch and Dinner Menu

christmas breakfast menu

The best part about Christmas is connecting with friends and family. We spend lots of time lounging, cooking in the kitchen, watching our favorite movies, playing games, and baking cookies. It doesn’t get better than that! Our Christmas Day Menu is almost always the same. This year I’ve added my Candy Cane Danish. It’s delicious!

Our breakfast casserole is a tradition every year. It’s so good and really hits the spot after a mimosa! What I like about this casserole is that it can be prepared the night before and baked the following morning. I’ll add the recipe at the end of this blog post if you want to try it.

With the casserole I’ll be baking a cream cheese raspberry danish. Shaped like a candy cane and filled with cream cheese and filled with sweet raspberries, this danish is such a treat and fun dessert for Christmas morning.

Fresh sliced citrus tastes so good with the other brunch items.

Beverages always include, coffee, orange juice, and Mimosas.

Between meals we much on various cheeses, olives, nuts, and dried fruits. There are also plenty of holiday cookies including our favorite GINGERBREAD cookies.

Christmas Dinner Menu

Christmas Dinner always includes a prime rib. I usually put it in sometime in the afternoon and while it cooks we usually take a hike or walk in the snow. The past two years we’ve had snow on Christmas. This year it’s not in the forecast and I’m feeling a little bummed. Oh well, regardless of the weather we will do something fun and come back hungry and walk into a kitchen filled with all those delicious smells!

Mashed potatoes are a must and you can find my recipe on this page along with our favorite pot roast.

I remember having Fresh Pea Soup (Potage Saint-Germain) when I was little girl, so it’s been a long time tradition in our family. It’s creamy and delicious and something I always crave along with all the rich holiday food.
