Looking for a Christmas brunch menu for your get together in December, well we have a bunch of easy breakfast recipes and sweet treats to choose from! Start early to create your perfect sweet and savory Christmas breakfast menu for your guests, and save some time using your pressure cooker and crockpot too! (affiliate links present, originally published 12/19)

When I buy unique sweet treats I swear by Goldbelly (you can get $25 off your order too) for cakes, cookies, bagels and more. If you want to make everything yourself I have recipes below. Take a peek and pick a few, then let us know which ones were your favorite or another one we should add to our list!

Christmas main dish

I think you need some sort of protein unless you’re hosting all vegetarian guests. Don’t assume you have to go with traditional though. We love a roasted duck and have even in a pinch cooked a frozen duck to tender.

A new favorite of ours is this dutch oven tri tip recipe!

What is really fun if you have a large bunch of people coming over is to make a bar of some sort. Something as simple as a toast bar can be cheap but really fun! First you make a bunch of toast in the oven and have things like; avocado, cream cheese, poached eggs, jams, jellies……

If you want a pretty and yummy centerpiece, make our cinnamon bread wreath this year.

We have made pumpkin monkey bread in the oven, air fryer monkey bread as well as monkey bread in a smoker. There, you have no excuse not to make this now.

Christmas Breakfast Buffet

I think even for breakfast you should offer savory and sweet options for everyone. Typically it’s going to last beyond the start of the day and almost into lunch too. A nice cross is to make slow cooker oatmeal and offer sweet and savory oatmeal options on the side.

This pull apart pigs in a blanket bread is so cute and easy to eat with a large crowd too.

These air fryer cinnamon rolls sticky buns are the bomb with eggs benedict.

Christmas Brunch Party

Of course if you’re looking for December Instant Pot recipes we have a lot. Several area listed here but if that is all you’re interested in then that post is for you.

Here we have dishes made in the oven and air fryer too. It’s a variety, but sometimes you just want pressure cooker everything.

Make a homemade waffles bar with all the toppings anyone would want for more fun too.

If you want an air fryer appetizer you’ve got to make these air fryer bagels stuffed with cream cheese!

What do you serve for a Christmas Brunch

Biggest thing you want to think of is you want to make it fun, and for all ages. The thing that has been the biggest hit for us is to make a few bars of sorts. Like a breakfast bar with items from below, then swap out for later to a mashed potato bar along with your main dish.

Have ALL things that people can top with so everyone can create their own perfect side dish. Cheeses, chives, sour cream, bacon bits, I mean taters go with all sorts of things. Know what I mean??

Then make another area where people can dress up their simple overnight oats! Have different types of fruit, brown sugar available.

We have made mini air fryer pumpkin pie for guests which are super cute.

For fun make a fruit bar! Have slices of different fruits with this cherry cheesecake dip in the middle. It’s a fun conversation piece.
