With Christmas fast approaching, you may be looking for easy Christmas brunch recipes. Growing up, Christmas brunch was almost as special as opening presents for me. My mom went all out during Christmas, and she always made sure we had an amazing brunch spread so we could leisurely nosh all morning long.

We always had quiche, cinnamon rolls, coffee cake, and more for Christmas brunch. So, I love preparing Christmas brunch now, and even more so since I sold the bake shop. As when I owned a bakery, Christmas was usually nonexistent as far as celebrating because I was too busy making sure other people's holidays were special. I never had time to make my own special.

So, I understand hectic holidays! Find my favorite 15 Easy Christmas Brunch Recipes below that you can include in your holiday menu.
