Having everyone bring a breakfast dish helps to allow the host to relax and savor the special moments of Christmas morning.
If there are kids around, it will be wild enough without having to stress about cooking many different foods.
Another benefit of a potluck is that it can lead to a more diverse menu and lets everyone be sure to have their favorite dish!
Plus, it can be good to encourage participation among guests and have everyone involved in the cooking and meal prep!
Tips for Hosting a Memorable Christmas Breakfast Potluck
When hosting a potluck, the most important thing is to plan ahead and communicate!
Most people don’t mind bringing something – and many will bring something whether you tell them to or not – but they just need plenty of advance notice.
When you set the date and create the guest list, go ahead and coordinate the dishes. Make sure you have the elements to make for a balanced meal.
Let everyone know if there are any dietary restrictions or preferred foods for them to include.
Have someone coming who doesn’t cook? Of course, they could buy something pre-made. But they could also help to decorate the space, bring holiday music, or prepare games or silly activities to do, too!
