Tasty Mother's Day Brunch Recipes

Brunch is a traditional Mother’s Day meal and it’s so well timed. A late morning or early afternoon brunch means Mom has time to relax in the morning, enjoy her coffee, and maybe even open her gifts.

Preparation is Key

Brunch can be as lavish or as simple as you’d like, but keep Mom’s tastes in mind. Make sure you have the menu planned ahead of time. And go to the market as soon as you can, to make certain all ingredients are available. Also, expect the unexpected: Uninvited guests, a burned dish, shortage of ingredients and plan accordingly.

Our Favorite Brunch Ideas - Simple and Delicious

A classic brunch menu is usually a mix of breakfast and lunch foods such as egg dishes, bacon or sausage, pancakes and French toast, light sandwiches and fruit salads.

To make life easy you can also serve up a mix of homemade items plus a few nice store-bought goodies (bagels, coffee cakes). Then throw in some fruit smoothies or light cocktails and you’re in business.

As for the homemade fare, here are a few of our absolute favorites:

 


 

Classic French Toast

Very Blueberry Pancakes

Pancakes are a lot easier to make than you think! And it doesn't get much better than fresh blueberry pancakes on Mother's Day.

Note: Worried about making from scratch? No worries, just use a store-bought pancake mix, and add the fresh blueberries to the batter before placing on the griddle.

 


 

Fresh Fruit Salad

What combination of fresh fruits you put into the bowl is really up to you. A lot may depend on what looks best when you're at the market. Here is one of our favorite combinations:

Fruit, Yogurt and Granola Parfait

This one couldn't be any simpler, yet it's as elegant as it is easy to make! We strongly suggest using clear glass bowls or cups for this recipe. IF you don't have anything like that, you can be clear plastic cups at any grocer that are perfect for this dish (and then, you don't have to wash up).
