Even though flowers and gifts are always appreciated, there is still time to show mom your appreciation on Mother’s Day with a homemade meal. And that wasn’t just any meal; it was BRUNCH. This weekend is Mother’s Day, so we thought we’d share some of our favorite brunch recipes with you.
SOLVING THE PRESENT CONUNDRUM AT BRUNCH?
The holiday is designed to honor the woman in your life, but she may have already rejected your gift-giving efforts with one of the following excuses.
- The costs are high. Is your monetary reserve sufficient?!
- It’s a waste of room to keep it around.
- The question is, where would I put it?
- Oh, I have one of those already.
- Thank you very much, but I’m quite content with my aging.
If your mom has responded to your nagging in any of the above ways, you might not know what to get her for Mother’s Day. We suggest making her a delicious home-cooked meal with love.
Our mother’s approval was never in question, but as we honed our culinary skills, the stakes became higher. And it’s true that since then, we’ve improved quite a bit as cooks. Here are some suggestions on how you can show your mom how much you care. That was one tasty lunch.
Our Top Picks for Mother’s Day Brunch
1. EGGS AND CHEESE SPOIL KALE PROSCIUTTO FOR BRUNCH
Mini kale and prosciutto breakfast melts are simple to make but impressive to serve at a gathering of friends or family. Would you like to make an extra effort? Here’s a recipe for homemade English muffins. Really, it’s not as hard as you might imagine.
2. ELVIS FRENCH TOAST
If you’re trying to find the ultimate indulgent brunch dishes, go no further than this Elvis French Toast. A Mother’s Day meal of peanut butter, bananas, bacon, and a big helping of maple syrup will leave everyone feeling sugar high and sated enough to let mom relax and enjoy the day in peace and harmony.
Try your hand at our Stuffed French Toast recipe, too! Banana and cinnamon cream cheese stacks are as delectable as any other. Mmm…
The aforementioned handmade English muffins come to mind. You can serve them with just about anything, and they will completely transform the game.
They’re far simpler than you might think to whip up, almost impossible to botch (that’s a big deal), and infinitely more satisfying than anything you might buy in a store. We have a classic English muffin recipe, as well as Multigrain and Pumpkin varieties. For a tasty twist, mix in some cinnamon and raisins.
4. RATATOUILLE BRUNCH BAKE
An oldie but a goodie, this Ratatouille Brunch Bake is sure to please. Skillet of fried eggs topped with roasted ratatouille vegetables; great with toast and bacon.
Can you imagine eating breakfast nachos? Sure, go ahead. Another time-honored recipe that hasn’t been lost in the sands of history. Assuming you have a sizable family, this is a fantastic choice for you. Helping one another is not required.
6. A HOMEMADE DIM SUM BRUNCH
How about making a dim sum breakfast for all the Chinese food-loving mums out there?
Recipes like our Roast Pork Puffs, Vegetable Dumplings, Shumai, and Hong Kong Egg Tarts are always crowd-pleasers here. Brunch isn’t complete without a pot of steaming tea.
7. BREAKFAST SAUSAGE MADE FROM SCRATCH
We promise that this is the best recipe for breakfast sausage that you will ever find. With this pork grind recipe, you can make breakfast sausage patties with just the right amount of spice and herbs.
8. COFFEE-FILLED CAKE WITH APPLES AND CINNAMON
Do you want to complement your savory brunch with a little bit sweet? Readers can’t get enough of the apple cinnamon coffee cake that’s been doing the rounds recently.
The ultimate dessert has layers of sugary crumbs, apple jam (which tastes like apple pie), and tender, moist cake.
9. SICHUAN POTATO CAKES WITH EGGS
These crispy potato cakes with Sichuan spices are a great option for mums who are looking for something new and exciting to try. These are great with a fried egg since the heat, and floral/numbing notes help to cut through the fatty yolk.
10. SESAME SCALLION WAFFLES
You can’t have a Mother’s Day brunch without waffles! These waffles with sesame seeds and scallions are an interesting twist on a breakfast staple. Because of how much we enjoy them, we often bake in bulk and store the extras in the freezer for later.
