Are you supposed to eat breakfast on Thanksgiving?

Many people skip breakfast on Thanksgiving to leave room for a big meal. However, I think that this depends on what time you eat your Thanksgiving feast. If you don’t eat until 2pm or later, it’s going to be hard to wait!

Plus kids should always eat breakfast on Thanksgiving day or they will be a disaster by lunch time!

What do you eat for breakfast on Thanksgiving?

You can have a simple or elaborate Thanksgiving breakfast. If you have guests visiting, you might be more intrigued to serve a larger breakfast or Thanksgiving brunch.

Ideas for Thanksgiving breakfast include:

  • Breakfast casseroles
  • Pumpkin pancakes, waffles, or french toast
  • Breakfast sandwiches
  • Pumpkin spice lattes or caramel apple cider

These make great Thanksgiving brunch ideas, too!

I highly suggest make ahead type breakfast casseroles and other things that don’t require too much work in the morning.

Of course, if you are planning a lot of cooking, please just serve something simple! Thanksgiving day is a big day!
