My mouth is seriously watering after looking through all of these Mother’s Day brunch recipe ideas. If I wasn’t trying to lose the baby weight, I’d run into the kitchen and whip up some muffins and a nice frittata right this second. Guess I’ll have to wait for the magical brunch waiting for me on Saturday after my 5K (hint hint, babe).
Muffins always catch my eye. I wish I was awesome enough at time management to pre-make these types of quick breads and have them ready to pop into the oven in the mornings before school. A blueberry muffin is always a good bet. These are from Make Ahead Meals for Busy Moms. (That’s actually my middle name!)
Or, lemon poppy seed muffins. Try them as mini muffins, if you want to exponentially increase your caloric intake without even knowing it. From Kitchen Meets Girl.
I’m a big sucker for anything that says “The Best _______ Ever!” right on the photo. It’s RIGHT ON THE PHOTO, so it must be the best. Seriously though, these are really good. I tend to be a pumpkin bread/muffin connoisseur, and I endorse these. Definitely add the butter or oil – makes them much more dense. These are from Carina at Today’s Mama.
On to Martha Stewart. Can’t doubt this woman. These egg nests with bacon look pretty darn simple and super yummy, but all of these recipes are great.
Okay, so the kids may not love this one, but it’s guaranteed mom will (insert runny eggs on top – you could omit this step). A ham, asparagus and cheese strata. Make it ahead, great ingredients, win. From Better Homes & Gardens.
Easiest, kid-pleaser recipe right here: French toast casserole. This recipe is a lot like my own (add Grand Marnier maybe, for kicks) and it’s ah-MAH-zing. From Ezra Pound Cake.
Finally, no homemade, buttermilk biscuit recipe is better than Alton Brown’s. Period. Once you try it, you won’t go back to the canned biscuit, ever. Found his recipe (and step-by-step on Redbook.) Use your best sausage gravy here, folks.
Hope this helps. Happy Mother’s Day to you and yo mama!
