Christmas morning PJs are required attire for making these laid-back but pretty-as-a-picture pancakes. Kids will love sprinkling powder-sugar "snow" over the ruby raspberries.

HamBob’s Angel Biscuits

Beautiful buttermilk biscuits always tie together a holiday brunch with a pretty gold ribbon - or rather, a gold flaky crust. Smother in honey and these yeasty rolls are sure to become a family tradition.

Southwestern Breakfast Casserole

Yeehaw! It's a cowboy kind of Christmas with this spicy bake-ahead egg casserole. Whole wheat bread makes a stellar egg infused base, while sharp cheddar cheese keeps the spices under control.

Pineapple Cranberry Coffeecake

Pineapple upside down cake gets a Christmas treatment with festive cranberries and a unique coffeecake texture. Leftovers will be blissfully enjoyed later on in the evening with a cup of hot tea by the fire.

Saffron Buns

A Scandinavian holiday tradition, these saffron buns bring the goodness of home-baked heritage to any brunch spread. We love them toasted and topped with nothing but butter.
