Ever since we can remember, our Christmas morning has looked like this. We wake up to open all the presents under the tree, try on our new outfits and try to make sense of all the chaos. Then, we pack up the car and head straight to Mimi and Papa’s to open more gifts and indulge in the best brunch of the year. And every year, Mimi will complain that the sauce isn’t “thick enough”, although no one in the family seems to notice.
If you’re looking to serve something delicious Christmas morning, please take it from us when we say this recipe is something you’ll want to try. Pair it with a few of our other favorite Christmas morning recipes, like these Buttermilk Pecan Pancakes and Peppermint Candied Christmas Bacon and you’ll have yourself a merry little brunch!

#HostfulHack: If your cream mixture is not thick enough, add a cornstarch and water mixture, one tablespoon at a time until you reach your desired thickness. If your cream mixture clumps when you add the flour and water mixture, simply turn up the heat a bit and use a utensil to mash the clumps and continue stirring until they cook down. You can also add warm milk a little bit at a time.
