The Best Christmas Brunch Recipes


Christmas brunch. It’s such a great meal. I am excited to share with you some amazing Christmas Brunch recipes today.

Brunch to me feels like a slow and decadent meal, in all of the best ways. It’s a meal to be lingered over, a little bit salty, a little bit sweet, with a lot of great food and conversation. Sharing some of my favorites that just might become yours as well!

Christmas brunch is such a wonderful meal.

At our Christmas Brunch, everyone is still in their Christmas jammies which is exactly how we like it. The presents are unwrapped and the mimosas are poured.

Of course, there is little time to prepare the menu so it needs to be something that can be made in advance and/or easily prepared.

But it also needs to taste delicious.

Frittatas, Three-Ways

Today I am sharing three amazing frittata recipes and some of our favorite breakfast bread recipes.

Be sure and scroll down to the bottom to see eight more wonderful Christmas brunch recipes.

I love making frittatas for our Christmas Brunch. I usually don’t use a recipe. All I do is add whatever I can find in the refrigerator and vegetable garden.

Christmas Brunch Recipes

I am going to add these two frittatas to my menu for this year’s Christmas brunch. They are Ground Turkey Sausage, Turkey Bacon, Pepper and Onion Frittata, and Tomato and Parmesan Frittata. 

Doesn’t that sound amazing?

Christmas Brunch Recipes in the Kitchen

I love cooking in our kitchen and I always cook on our kitchen island. After cooking in our kitchen for over twenty years, it is well stocked. I have tried to limit my kitchen utensils and appliances to necessary items only. But I do own everything you might need to cook just about anything! 

Christmas Brunch Recipes Frittatas

Not only are frittatas light and taste good, but they also are really easy to make. 

Making a frittata is a three-step process. You cook the fillings and add the eggs. And bake them. 

We don’t use a lot of cheese around here (we try to be nondairy) so you might notice very little cheese. I used to cook with cheese all of the time. But not now!

I love onions and peppers in anything. You shouldn’t be surprised to see that the first frittata recipe has both! 

(A good tip is to cook some onions and peppers with olive oil, let them cool, and store them in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator. You will find they taste amazing with scrambled eggs, sandwiches, burgers, and more.)

Once you start to fill your pans, don’t hesitate to add anything else you think might be good.

Each frittata takes a dozen eggs. Of course, that is based on the size of your pan. We used 10″ quiche pans, so if you use a smaller pan you can use fewer eggs.

This frittata is a light and delicious egg dish perfect for any occasion.

Prep Time 20 minutes
Cook Time 45 minutes

  • 1 pound ground turkey sausage
  • ½ pound turkey bacon
  • 1 onion (sliced into thin rings)
  • 1 red pepper (sliced into strips)
  • 1 TBSP chopped garlic (total)
  • 2 TBSP olive oil
  • 4 green onions, chopped, including greens
  • 1 dozen eggs
  • ½ cup milk or half and half


Brown the ground turkey sausage in a pan with a dash of olive oil and a tsp of chopped garlic.

Brown the turkey bacon until crisp. Add a dash of olive oil if the bacon is sticking to the pan.

Once the meats are cooked through, chop the turkey bacon and add to the ground turkey sausage, combining the two together. Set aside.

In the same pan as the turkey was cooked, add a tablespoon of olive oil and ½ tsp of garlic and warm. Add sliced onions. Cook until translucent. Add the red pepper and cook until the onions and peppers are both soft and cooked through. Transfer to the paper towels to absorb the grease.

In a quiche pan, spread the turkey and bacon mixture evenly in the pan. Add the onion and pepper mixture on top of the turkey mixture, spreading evenly.

Whisk together the eggs and milk/half and half. Pour over the turkey mixture, onion, and peppers in the quiche pan. Sprinkle the green onions over the top.

Bake at 350 for 35-45 minutes until set. The eggs will puff up so make sure there is room in the pan for expansion.

  1. Your home is lovely! I have a home that was built in 1930. It is stuck in 1980 with window treatments and colors that are heavy with pattern. I’m looking for ideas to freshen it up and clear it from the weight of the past. Thank you for sharing your home and ideas.

  2. You mentioned that when you do an egg dish, you need accompanying dish. For a holiday I have used a hot curried fruit recipe alot. It’s sweet, easy and unusual. Add a chocolate brownie and voila!
