Recipes to Make for Mother’s Day Brunch

By Kristin Appenbrink From The Kitchn

If there’s ever a time to stay home for brunch, it’s on Mother’s Day. Not that Mom doesn’t deserve a nice meal out, but it’s one of the busiest Sundays for brunch every year. So if you’re staying in, do it up big! Roll out the red carpet, bring her coffee in bed, and make her a meal that shows her how much you care.

If your mom’s got a sweet tooth, any one of the sweet and fruity French toast options will do the trick. Want to serve something hearty and savory? A breakfast casserole or savory breakfast cake fits the bill. To round out the menu, we’ve included a few cocktails and flavorful mocktails, so no matter what you serve, you can raise a glass and toast to mom.

1. Breakfast Banana Split with Yogurt and Jam
Mother’s Day breakfast doesn’t have to be fancy — especially if you have small kids who want to help prepare the meal. This easy “banana split” replaces ice cream with yogurt, and hot fudge with jam. You could even serve it as an appetizer in bed while the rest of the brunch meal is being prepared.

2. Breakfast Sangria
No celebratory brunch would be complete without a cocktail. This citrus-spiked sangria recipe is a wonderful alternative to the classic mimosa. Just be sure to make it the night before so it has enough time for the flavors to meld.

3. Easy, Ethereal Popovers
You can’t go wrong adding buttery popovers to your brunch menu. The airy, buttery roll is lighter than the traditional biscuit or scone, but is equally delectable when slathered with butter and jam.

4. Lemon Brioche French Toast & Raspberries
What’s the fastest way to make French toast fancier? Use brioche in place of the regular bread. The enriched loaf makes for a sublimely buttery and sweet French toast. We love this lemon version because the citrus notes keep the dish from tasting too heavy.

5. Egg, Arugula & Herb Tartine
Want to fancy up scrambled eggs? Try making this tartine recipe instead. Simply by adding a handful of arugula and herbs to your normal scrambled egg routine you’ve taken a weekday staple into brunch territory. Serve them artfully plated atop two slices of toasted and buttered sourdough for a final touch. Bonus points for including sausage and a flower to garnish.

6. The Bright & Bitter Mocktail
Want to add something to the brunch spread that’s a little more interesting than OJ? This mocktail made with cranberry and citrus juices is the sweet and refreshing answer. And of course, you can always add gin, rum, or tequila to turn it into an easy cocktail.

7. Green Shakshuka
One of our favorite recipes to make in a cast iron pan is shakshuka, and this green version is a delightful update. The base is made from a range of greens like chard, leeks, celery, and spinach, although you can experiment based on what you have on hand. The best part? There’s only one pan to wash at the end of such a flavor-packed dish.

8. Smoked Salmon Egg Boats
The egg boat is a perfect brunch recipe if you have little hands who want to help in the kitchen. Put them to the task of scooping out the bread for the boat. Just make sure they don’t end up eating all of it while you make the filling. If salmon isn’t for you, you can substitute in any number of fillings like sautéed mushrooms or cooked bacon.

9. Spicy Kombucha Bloody Mary
If Mom is looking for something fizzy and fun on the table, you’ll want to make sure this Bloody Mary with kombucha is on the menu. The kombucha gives it just the right amount of kick and pairs well with the tomato juice.

10. Deep-Dish Quiche Lorraine with Swiss Chard and Bacon
Make your plain ol’ quiche Lorraine more impressive by transforming it into this sky-high, deep-dish version. Yes, it might take a little bit more effort than a normal quiche or scrambled eggs, but isn’t Mom worth it?
