Celebrate Christmas Brunch With Class

Looking to start Christmas Day the right way? Put the porridge and toast away for the day, the festive season is all about indulgences, and these brunch recipes are just that. Whether eggs benedict, cinnamon swirl scones or French toast, these dishes will make your Christmas morning spent with family extra special.

Here are a few ideas to inspire your Christmas brunch menu:

Smoked salmon Tortillas

This may technically be more of an omelette than a tortilla, but it doesn’t make it any less delicious. Energise yourself with this protein-packed breakfast on Christmas morning, and don’t forget to share it with your friends and family too.

Mascarpone complements the smoky flavour of the salmon perfectly, and the peas add a little colour pop to this delightful dish.

Kedgeree is another flavourful brunch recipe that unites smoked salmon and eggs. Rice may not be your immediate choice for breakfast, but when teamed with the warm flavour of the spices and the smokiness of the salmon, we’re sure you’ll be convinced.

Serve with sliced hard boiled eggs, smoked salmon and a sprig of coriander for that extra touch. Enjoy with the subtle taste of a fruit tea for a light, but satisfying brunch before your lunchtime feast.

Eggs Benedict, a classic creamy breakfast from across the pond in America, will really spoil your taste buds this Christmas. Serve warm English muffins with bacon (or our hot smoked salmon) and poached eggs, drizzled in this thick hollandaise sauce, for a comforting brunch treat.

A homemade hollandaise sauce is easier to make than you may first think, and it will taste much better than a store bought alternative. Give it a try!

Cinnamon Swirl Scones

There is something about cinnamon that just reminds us of Christmas. And these scones are just like a cinnamon bun, but much quicker to make.

With the flaky and buttery characteristics of a scone and cinnamon’s spicy flavour, these breakfast pastries are a Christmas treat made even better with a strong cup of quality coffee and a side of fresh berries.

French Toast

If you have a sweet tooth, then this French toast may make the perfect brunch treat for you. Even the smell is mesmerising; just imagine it drifting around your home on an early winter morning. And with a light sprinkling of icing sugar on top, it almost looks like snow!

Top with a spoonful of maple candied peaches, a drizzle of syrup and a good dollop of thick cream for a decadent Christmas brunch meal with style.
