Give your Christmas brunch a Mediterranean twist! Here is a roundup of 21 recipes and ideas…
Christmas morning comes with all sorts of traditions. It can include an early morning church service with everyone dressed up in festive garb; a quiet hike in the nearby park; a pajama party by the Christmas tree; or a large gathering of family and friends…
Then, there is the food, of course! For some, it may be a quick bite to hold you over until the special dinner. For others, Christmas brunch is the big feast!
Christmas Brunch “Rules?”
I prefer a festive but laid-back Christmas brunch; and there are no hard rules. What’s on the buffet? I like a little of this and a little of that, but I usually think in terms of four general categories: casseroles; salads; nibbles; and sweets. And of course, all with a Mediterranean twist.
With that in mind, I’ve selected 21 of my favorite Christmas brunch recipes. Hope this inspires some ideas for your own fun brunch…

Casseroles are always the main event at brunch. Hearty crowd-pleasing dishes, from french toast to Greek Spanakopita, and eggs from around the world!
Overnight Baked Challah French Toast (topped with your choice of fruit!)
2. Festive Salads
I love to add at least two salads to my brunch buffet! They’re the perfect fresh and tangy bite next to a hearty casserole. Plus, festive!
Festive bites that I think have a place on the Christmas brunch buffet. Perfect either to snack on as you wait on that glorious casserole, or to serve next to everything else!
(If serving a large crowd, make a double batch and keep them warm in the crock-pot as part of the brunch buffet!)
Because what Christmas brunch is complete without a little something sweet!
(Love the savory/sweet combination in these buttery cookies!)
