Mother’s Day is just around the corner, and I know a lot of you are coming up with your plans for the day. Most years, we’ll celebrate by either taking my mom out to brunch or we’ll host a small brunch at home. Both are great options, but there’s something really special about being able to cook for your mom after she did the same for you for so many years!
We’re heading down to Oak Island for Mother’s Day this year, but I wanted to be prepared in case we don’t have any brunch plans yet. So I started collecting brunch recipes that would be simple, yet feel special for this occasion. I thought it might be helpful to share for any of you who are also planning to host this year!
Quiche is such a classic brunch dish. My Mimi has been making quiches for different holidays for longer than I can remember. I personally love quiche lorraine, but you could easily substitute the ingredients to create a tasty quiche florentine or ham and swiss quiche. I might add a nice summer salad or even a side of fruit to make this a full meal that will fill everyone up. Oh, and let’s not forget the mimosas (or OJ for me)!
Let’s be honest, French toast is about as good as it gets for brunch. I remember my mom making us French toast growing up all the time, and I think it would such a nostalgic dish to make for Mother’s Day. I love adding berries and a hint of maple syrup to mine, but you could definitely play around with different toppings too!
Fruit and yogurt parfaits are one of my favorite things to have for breakfast. I love good granola, and I also like that yogurt has plenty of protein so it keeps me full for a long time. There are a ton of really great granolas out there that you can buy from the store, or you could easily make your own if you felt so inclined too!
What are your plans for this Mother’s Day? As always, thank y’all for stopping by and reading. I will see y’all back here next time.
