Bless This Mess honors us with Broiled Grapefruit. This is a super simple way to make your grapefruit extra juicy and delicious. For those that want to watch their glycemic index you can substitute coconut sugar for the brown sugar, or skip the sugar altogether.
This Low-Carb Cheesy Crustless Quiche Lorraine from Kalyns Kitchen is good for your guests who eat low-carb or gluten free. It does include bacon. For those that do not eat bacon you can just skip it. Another idea, and a great way to add vege to your diet, is to sub in a vegetable such as red peppers.
The Mr. is a huge fan of Apple Turnovers so I had to search for a good one. These 4-Ingredient Easy Apple Turnovers from Amy & Jacky at Pressure Cooker Recipes is sure to please. I love that they are just four ingredients, and you could make them with just three if you chose to.
For our Gingerbread fans we add Gingerbread Muffins to Christmas brunch. These have a healthy twist brought to us by To Simply Inspire. They truly are inspired. I am a big fan because I love finding ways to swap out extra fat and calories for healthier ingredients.
A yogurt parfait topped with Breakfast Cranberry Granola from Dining with Alice would be an excellent addition to the Christmas brunch feast. As well, if you are going lighter, it would make a great breakfast all on it’s own.
Decide what you want to serve for Christmas brunch now, make your grocery list and watch the stress disappear.
Shop for your groceries on December 23rd (grocery store will be super crowded on December 24th) and you will be all set and feeling great.
