Whoever decided that Mother’s Day is best celebrated with brunch is a genius. And probably a Mom. If you’re hosting Mom this year, make her brunch extra special with one of these tried-and-true breakfast recipes that will impress everyone at the table. (But mostly Mom, since that’s the point…)
So whether you’re cooking for a Paleo Mamma, a my-best-dinner-was-food-truck-tacos Mom, or a more traditional Matriarch who may even expect cloth napkins, we’ve got the perfect recipe for the perfect brunch. Get ready to celebrate Mother’s Day your way…
1. Almond-Flour Paleo Waffles
Mom went Paleo this year. Mother’s Day brunch just got a little more complicated. Don’t worry! If you’re searching for a paleo-friendly breakfast option that tastes just as delicious as the original recipes, look no further than these almond flour waffles. GET THE RECIPE.
2. Breakfast Granola Fruit Tart with Yogurt
3. Classic French Crepes with Banana and Nutella
You may not be able to fly mom to Paris, but you can treat her to this Parisian cafe favorite. GET THE RECIPE.
4. Fluffy Blueberry Lemon Ricotta Pancakes
A tall stack of these pillowy soft ricotta pancakes and, suddenly, you’re Mom’s favorite child. That was easy. GET THE RECIPE.
5. Puff Pastry Smoked Salmon And Goat Cheese Quiche
Thanks to a puff pastry crust, this impressive quiche comes together quickly! With a filling of custard-ey eggs, smoked salmon, and crème fraîche or goat cheese this dish is sure to be a Mother’s Day brunch all-star. GET THE RECIPE.
6. Strawberry Mango Mint Julep Fruit Salad with Whipped Marshmallow
This boozey fruit salad is a fun addition to an all adult-brunch. To save time, you can pick up store-bought marshmallow fluff but we think this homemade version is worth the extra effort. GET THE RECIPE.
7. Tacos for Breakfast! Tacos Rancheros
You love Mom, you love Tacos. Now you can enjoy both things at the same time. And while this brunch recipe is super simple to make, the mixed veggies, tangy sauce, and creamy cheese come together in a perfect flavor fiesta— and make you look like a gourmet chef. Hooray! GET THE RECIPE.
No Wonder You’re Mom’s Favorite
What to do when Mom lives far away? You’re still covered. Send her a Mother’s Day Rise and Shine Package, and let Mom enjoy a home-cooked meal, even if you’re not home to make it. We’ll send her Buttermilk Pancake Mix, Organic Maple Syrup, Gourmet Hot Tea. and an adorable Teapot and Tea Towel Set that will convince her she raised the most thoughtful child alive. (You can add a personalized note to remind her of this if you feel it’s absolutely necessary.)
We know it’s not always possible to be with the people we celebrate on Mother’s Day. But we promise to send the next best thing: a beautiful (and delicious) reminder that a little love goes a long, long way.
