On Mother’s Day, every kid and co-parent is supposed to pull out all of the stops. Mom’s job is to sit back, relax, and smell the flowers…and the perfectly crisp bacon, and the piping hot coffee, and the cinnamon-laced pancakes or Parmesan-infused frittata, and whatever else her heart desires.
The best thing to make on Mother’s Day has to be brunch. Treating her to a mid-morning meal means letting her wake up at her leisure, a sure-fire way to show her how much you appreciate all she does for the family.
Setting the scene is important. You want to make her feel that you know how much attention she pays to little things—like a nicely set table. But don’t be daunted by the details. After all, who knows mom better than you? Pick up a bunch of her favorite flowers and arrange them on the table. Choose napkins in her favorite color. Make a playlist of her favorite songs. And don’t forget to pour her favorite cocktails!
Curating a menu doesn’t have to be your biggest challenge. Go for simple but delicious dishes. One foolproof way to make sure mom is happy and healthy during brunch is to rely on an old breakfast staple: the egg. There are dozens of ways to prepare them—poached, scrambled, baked, over easy. Do some “investigative” work to find out what tickles mom’s taste buds and then check back here for some delicious recipes and ideas for how to serve this versatile ingredient at your Mother’s Day brunch. You’ll be sure to find something that will make mom happy.
