7 Special Mother's Day Breakfast-in-Bed Recipes

Impress mom with these 7 great breakfast recipes

Asparagus Scrambled Eggs

This is a French-style scramble, in which the eggs are barely set. If you've never had eggs that way before, the effect is ethereal — light, fluffy, and almost creamy.   

Buttermilk Pancakes with Blueberries and Maple Syrup

Buttermilk, which is slightly acidic, is the key to these light and fluffy pancakes. Although pancakes are generally best fresh, these pancakes can be made the night before and reheated in the oven briefly for easier preparation in the morning and less last-minute panicking.

Eggs Benedict Waffle

An exercise in contradiction? Nope. This is, quite simply, the recipe for people who just can't decide what to make.

Nettle and Sorrel Soufflé Omelette with Feta

This recipe is for the more ambitious readers out there. Matt Wilkinson, an Australian chef based in Melbourne and author of Mr. Wilkinson's Vegetables, had this on the menu of his flagship restaurant, Pope Joan, for some time. The timing is a bit tricky, but even if the soufflé omelette deflates a bit by the time it gets to the bed, we're confident that mum will be wowed by the seasonal spring flavors alone. (And no, don't bring the whole pot.)

French Toast with Pineapple Marmalade and Viande des Grisons

French people making French toast — shouldn't it be called pain perdu then? Whatever you want to call it, this recipe by renowned French chef Pierre Gagnaire is easier than you think and will make mom think you took some fancy cooking classes.

The Perfect Frittata


John Besh thinks he's made the perfect frittata. That's a pretty bold statement to make, but even if this egg dish isn't all it's cracked up to be, since it's by Besh, you can be sure it's still darn good.

Old-Fashioned Cinnamon Rolls


Here's another recipe for the ambitious. Hiding this one won't be easy because the aromas of fresh cinnamon will be wafting through the house before you're done, but nothing says love like a freshly baked batch of cinnamon rolls from scratch coming out of the oven in the morning.
