There’s nothing quite like Christmas Brunch! And this Christmas Brunch menu is full of flavor, celebration, and crowd-pleasing recipes. I also kept it simple because who wants to be tethered to the kitchen on Christmas morning!?

Below you’ll find my simple go-to menu for Christmas brunch. It’s sweet, savory and a little decadent. It features a delicious coffee cake/bread, tricked out bacon, a delectable quiche, and of course a simple salad to pair with the savory egg dish.

Plus, if you’re looking for a few other options, I’ve listed some additional Christmas brunch menu ideas below.

And if you’re still planning dinner, check out these Christmas dinner menu ideas!

Christmas Brunch Menu

Apricot-Almond Swedish Tea Ring is a traditional Christmas brunch dish. It can be made ahead either baked or unbaked (information for both are in the recipe article).

Candied Bacon is a very easy and very fun side dish for Christmas breakfast. It’s savory, sweet, salty and a little spicy. This is cooked in the oven but can be served at room temperature so it won’t fight for oven space with the tea ring.

Crustless Quiche is the perfect egg dish to pair with the tea ring. With the tea ring on the table, there’s already enough starchy carbs happening that there’s no need to fuss with the crust.

Herbed Salad with Grapefruit Vinaigrette is a bright and acidic salad that cuts through the other savory and decadent flavors of the menu.

If you’re serving a large crowd, I love to assemble a large breakfast charcuterie complete with mini waffles, pancakes or bagels, cream cheese, maple syrup or jam, peanut butter, bacon or sausage, fresh fruit, smoked salmon, and hard boiled eggs. Easy, stunning and everyone is happy!
