Holiday Breakfast Ideas for Kids & Adults

If you're like me, are hosting Christmas this year and having overnight guests, one of the questions you're probably trying to answer is "What's for breakfast?" And, more importantly, "what's for breakfast that doesn't take forever, mess up my whole kitchen and everyone will like?" Well, I have your answer! I have put together two delicious baked breakfasts that you assemble the night before, refrigerate and pop in the oven in the morning. So easy and no mess! The Vanilla Bean French Toast Bake is perfect for the kiddos (and adults with a sweet tooth). Guests looking for a lighter and more savory option, will love the Lightened-Up Turkey Broccoli Breakfast Bake.
