Christmas Breakfast Wreath

One of my fondest memories is waking up early on Christmas to unwrap gifts with loved ones, lounge in pajamas, watch holiday movies and brunch the morning away. My most beloved brunch dish is my Christmas Breakfast Wreath. It has everything a classic breakfast sandwich offers but with a holiday touch.

Christmas Breakfast Wreath is perfect for the holidays because it’s not time consuming and it’s super shareable. It’s a fun spin on a classic breakfast casserole. I’m going to show you how easy it is to make for you and yours!

Making the “Wreath”

You could always make your own dough but if getting back to the festivities of the season has you less apt to overtime in the kitchen, pre-made crescent rolls are the way to go. Many of you know, I’m no baker. Intermediate skills is about as far as my expertise extends but I have a few cheat codes in my recipe rolodex.

Hence I love the versatility of crescent rolls. And the wreath doesn’t have to be just for the holidays. Remember, brunch is always in season! Speaking of brunch, check out my Egg Bruschetta or a past brunch experience I had in my beloved city of Washington, D.C.

What filling should I use for the Christmas Breakfast Wreath?

Christmas Breakfast Wreaths are great because they are so customizable. So if you’re looking for a flavorful breakfast that everyone will enjoy, this is it! You’re essentially taking everything you love about traditional breakfast and wrapping it in a warm, buttery crescent roll for an easy pull apart meal.

Eggs and peppers in a glass bowl combined

I suggest a meat, eggs, some veggies for texture and cheese for extra yum factor. For my wreath, I used turkey bacon, eggs, oregano, red and green peppers and cheddar cheese. Pre cook your eggs and veggies so you aren’t left with a soggy mess.

This can definitely be made vegetarian by opting out of the turkey bacon. For my meat lovers, you can add ham, pork bacon, or breakfast sausage. Just get creative! The possibilities are endless.
