We are always looking for the best ever Christmas breakfast ideas to make your
holiday morning tastier that can be prepared ahead of time.
To make your holiday morning quick and easy why not make a batch of blueberry muffins in advance? This recipe I have shared before and have had a request to post it again. Whip up a recipe of Strawberry Butter to spread on your warm muffin when you are ready to serve them. These muffins make a delicious side for our make ahead Bacon Quiche. Just blend up your filling for your quiche, chill it overnight and pour it into your crust when you are ready to bake it.
You can serve these recipes for breakfast, brunch, or lunch.
Enjoy your Merry Christmas!
