Christmas Morning Breakfast on Your Grill. Just as you deck the halls with Christmas décor, you should equally be planning your holiday meals. Don’t be restricted by the thought that grilling is meant for summers only. It can be just as (or even more) fun during winter too. This Christmas morning, you can create a new tradition of making breakfast on your grill!
Don’t skip a festive tablescape
You can create the magical spirit of Christmas morning by transforming your breakfast tablescape into a winter wonderland. Everyone dreams of a white Christmas, and this year you can give them that at the breakfast table. Start with adding a blanket to each chair or even some fun faux fur for that cozy cabin feel. Then, bring in all white for your dishes, as well as covering the table with fake snow. Candles are not only used in the evenings—add some ambiance with votive candles at breakfast and don’t forget to add in some greenery and Christmas decor. Here are a few tablescapes that we found on Pinterest to inspire you.
Savor Grilled Delights
Now that you’ve set the mood, it’s time to fire up the grill! Starting a new tradition of a Christmas morning holiday bbq will give your family and guests something to talk about long after the holidays. Here are some of our favorite breakfast recipes by Traeger Grills.
- Holiday breakfast strata – Perfect for sharing and great for breakfast, this savory casserole has bread, sausages, cheese, milk, and Worcestershire sauce as some of its ingredients. With a dash of nutmeg for that holiday flavor, it only takes 30 minutes to make but leaves a lasting positive culinary impression.
- Raspberry French toast casserole – This easy to make fruity casserole is great for breakfast, brunch, or dessert. Each creamy slice comes with a perfect blend of cinnamon and vanilla matched with a hit of raspberries that will wake up your taste buds. The fresh raspberries coupled with cinnamon brings in that holiday vibe. It takes about 45 minutes and when cool, you can dust it with some confectioner’s sugar to match your winter wonderland theme too!
- Eggs bacon nest – Bring a new twist to classic breakfast items by preparing them the Traeger way. Bacon and eggs are a fool-proof breakfast meal, and by preparing them in a muffin pan that goes inside a Traeger grill, you’ll get different textures and visual delights from this unique presentation. Simply cut the bacon accordingly and place them on the muffin tin as base on which the egg will “nest” on. Season with the suggested ingredients or give it your personal spin. Within just 30 minutes, you’ll have a low-carb breakfast item everyone will love.

Cheers to the New Year
To finish off your feast or to pave the way for merrymaking, try some hot drinks. Mulled cider wine and buttered brandy can add that kick to your gathering. Other warming drinks include coffee and hot chocolate. Amp it up by adding a little swig of coffee or chocolate liqueur which will completely add a different dimension to your otherwise regular winter drinks.
Have a fun and flavorful Christmas morning holiday bbq that everyone will love. Fire up your bbq and enjoy the warmth and cheer that winter grilling brings!
