About this Christmas Brunch Board

Christmas brunch boards are endlessly adaptable, which is why they are such a great way to treat your family to an unforgettable holiday meal.

If your family loves loaded scrambled eggs with sausage, bacon, and toppings like cheese, chopped green onions, and salsa, you can arrange your egg scramble board with all the fixins and include a few special sides, like chocolate croissants and mini cinnamon muffins. What an amazing spread!

If your family is looking for sweet treats on Christmas morning, you can make breads and muffins in the week leading up to Christmas, and then arrange them on your board with maple cinnamon butter, sweet lemon glazes, and fresh fruit with yogurt and granola. A sweet treat dream!

If you’re looking for a traditional Christmas brunch board, you’ll want to include a balance of colors along with sweet and salty foods. Include a selection of proteins like meats, cheeses, Greek yogurt, and eggs.

Whether you prefer sweet or salty, colorful or understated, overflowing or artfully arranged, you’ll love making memories over your Christmas brunch board. It’s sure to become a favorite Christmas tradition.

Don’t forget about a special Christmas drink! Try salted caramel hot chocolate, pumpkin spice latte, gingerbread hot chocolate, or add a gingerbread coffee syrup to your morning coffee.

How to make this Christmas breakfast board your own

The possibilities for your Christmas board are endless, but here are some fun ideas:

  • You can follow a flavor (like cinnamon, or blueberry) or a color theme (red and green is perfect for Christmas), or let each person in your family choose a favorite dish for the board.
  • If there are a lot of people in your family, or if you want to make two smaller boards, you can make one board with your breads, muffins, bagels, fruits and spreads and use a second board for your warm foods like eggs, bacon, quiche, pancakes, and waffles. Or, fill one board with pancakes and pancake toppings, and use a second board for your other sides.
  • If you’re looking for a Christmas dessert option, try arranging your desserts on a Christmas dessert board. Fudge, cookies, bars, chocolate sauce, peppermint bark, candy canes, and colorful candies look great arranged on a board.
  • If you find that you have a lot of items for your board, you can use a cake stand to create a second tier on your board or use bowls on your board to contain large quantities of hot foods like scrambled eggs, cheesy grits, or gravy for those flakey, buttery biscuits.

Make Ahead Ideas

  • You can prepare your fruits the day before if you’re worried about getting everything on your board at the same time.
  • You can arrange your baked goods on your board before you begin cooking your meats and eggs. Just cover them with plastic wrap so they don’t dry out.
  • If desired or needed, keep bacon, sausage, and pancakes in a warm oven (175-200ºF) while you arrange the rest of the board and make the eggs.
