Breakfast ideas you can easily make ahead and serve for leisurely breakfasts during the holidays, special occasions, or busy mornings!
When I first married, I was a bit overwhelmed with making breakfast when we had overnight guests for the weekend, especially during the holidays. I wanted to be able to serve a warm, inviting, comforting breakfast without having a huge mess in the kitchen. I also wanted to be able to enjoy spending time with everyone without anyone feeling like they should hurry into the kitchen in the morning to help me.
Now that we’ve been married for nearly 20 years, I know there are certain types of breakfast recipes that I turn to when we have guests for the weekend, for special occasions, and leisurely weekend brunches. And since our son was born, I learned that these same dishes are essential to get a hearty, homemade breakfast made throughout the week!
I think you might find them handy, too!
