These are Christmas pancakes kids are sure to love! Make during the holiday season or for an extra special Christmas morning!
+ Think of recipes that you can make ahead! A fruit salad, a French toast bake, a frittata or quiche ready to put into the oven! +
+ Set out items the night before like pitchers for juice, plates and napkins, any table settings — this will make the morning a breeze! +
+ Have a variety of breakfast favorites. When it comes to brunch I like to have both sweet and savory options, sausage and bacon, toast, bagels, and some sweet options like French toast, pancakes or waffles. +
+ Don’t forget some lighter options! Fresh fruit, yogurt, granola — giving options is always appreciated. +
+ Fresh juices, coffee and tea add the finishing touch! +
Brunch is such a fun way to gather and enjoy a meal with a more casual set up! Especially with holiday guests and family, having brunch ideas on hand is always helpful!
I hope that these pancakes are a big hit with your kiddos just like they were for mine!
