Christmas morning brunch is probably one of my favorite meals of the year.

My kids wake up early – of course – and my husband and I saunter downstairs as they excitedly peek at what Santa left for them. We pour our coffee and settle in as they unpack their stockings. While they set up and play with Santa’s surprise we kick off breakfast prep. Nothing extraordinary or time intensive; definitely delicious.

Grandma rolls in next and we dine together, usually still in pajamas. A relaxed Christmas morning is definitely where it’s at!

Nutella and Strawberry Crepes from Baby Gizmo

You can’t go wrong with crepes! And strawberries add such a festive color. Best of all you can prep the batter the night before to simplify the Christmas morning prep.

Strawberry Nutella Crepes
Crepes are a bit more time intensive than, say, pancakes, because you have to babysit each one rather than filling a griddle. But, they’re worth it. Soft and delicious and smooth and sweet. And totally customizable based on your filling preferences.

Cinnamon French Toast with Spiced Maple Syrup from Baby Gizmo

I don’t think it gets any better than a classic French toast with a fancy syrup.

Cinnamon French Toast with Spiced Maple Syrup
The subtle difference of infusing your maple syrup with fragrant spices such as cinnamon, star anise, peppercorns and cloves is what transforms a classic dish into a gourmet dish. The addition of orange zest adds an extra depth of flavor and brightens up the maple syrup even more.
