Mother's Day Brunch Ideas!

I'm a mom, so I can say this with authority: Moms Love Brunch!

Let me tell you why!

Mother's Day Brunch means:

  • We don't have to cook and we'd BETTER NOT have to clean up.
  • For the love of God! Someone finally let us sleep in. That's all we ever want, am I right? Well.. that and a day alone with a good book and a box of chocolates.
  • YOU get to decide if we want savory OR sweet for brunch. That's usually the hardest decision EVER. But whatever you feed us must be something WE like. It's our day after all! 

If you're a mother and you want brunch time awesomeness this Sunday, please direct this post to your family. If you want to make brunch for your mother, ask her her thoughts on eating in bed and then take it from there. Breakfast in bed is kind of a tricky thing...especially when there's maple syrup involved. I remember it being a bit awkward when I brought my mom french toast in bed one Mother's day...

Maybe you just wanna take Mom on a spa day and then share three plates of fries afteward?  You hear that, Cooper??!

Let's start with SAVORY:

PAN ROASTED ASPARAGUS W/ FRIED EGGS

Asparagus is in season. Moms will be impressed by the breadcrumbs and LOOK! You fried an egg.

BACON & EGG BREAKFAST PIZZA W/ ARUGULA

Breakfast pizza done right. Women love salad. Look! This is like a salad masking egg, bacon & pizza trickery.

BELL PEPPER IN-A HOLE

For when you're saving calories cuz yer making mom a spectacular dessert for Mother's Day, try this healthy recipe!

SAUSAGE CHEDDAR BISCUITS

I mean...come on. A few of these biscuits with some eggs...and maybe a little maple syrup in a little bowl. YES.

BAGELS & SMOKED SALMON CREAM CHEESE

If you're feeding the whole family in addition to praising your mom, this will do the trick!

LET'S GET SWEET!

FARM STAND BUTTERMILK DOUGHNUTS

Tell your mom it's OK to eat 5. IT'S HER DAY!!! Calories don't matter, she BIRTHED you!

BUCKWHEAT BELGIUM WAFFLES

Waffles are easy. She'll like waking up to a batch of these scenting the house.

ORANGE POPPY SCONES

Light buttery scones perfumed with orange zest. Give your mom a book, some tea & some scones.

Now clean the kitchen without being asked to.

MOM'S SOUR CREAM COFFEE CAKE

Make one of your mom's classic recipes! She'll love having a break from doing it herself.

WARM PEAR-RASPBERRY BRUSCHETTA

Your mom will think you're aces for coming up with such a clever treat. Tell her it's just good genes.

STICKY LEMON ROLLS

Make these the night before and sneak out of your bed and put them in the oven in the AM.

Go get the newspaper, set the table, and blow your mom's mind. Favorite child? That's you! Duh.

MELON & MINT SALAD

You gotta throw a fruit salad in there. A balanced diet is ALWAYS appreciated. Mom's want to know they've taught you well.
