You can picture it now, can’t you? Happy, bright-eyed kids (it’s probably 5am, let’s be real), coffee or hot chocolate (with or without Bailey’s) and snow falling softly outside. Sounds idyllic, right? We’re with you. But eventually the cries of “I’m hungry!” will start to drown out the rustling of wrapping paper and Christmas carols, and you’re gonna want to be ready. Don’t worry, we have your back. Well, actually Katie Mitzel from Rocky Mountain Cooking does.

Try one of these three delish breakfast recipes, perfect for Christmas morning.

Lemony Lavender Buttermilk Cake

This is a no-fuss, big-taste cake. If there’s any day of the year you can serve cake for breakfast, this is it. We’re betting no one complains.

Salted Caramel Buns

There is something so incredibly decadent about the union of sweet and salty. Pair with a simple fruit salad and don’t lose a moment of the happy momentum.

Baked French Toast Casserole with Streusel

Here’s a make-ahead dish with all the tasty flavours of French toast. If you want to take this to the next level, top with whipped cream and maple syrup.
