Here are 3 great recipes you can cook for Mom on Mother’s Day
Mother’s day is coming up this Sunday and I’m here to help share with you a brunch menu that I came up with that you can make this Sunday for mom’s special day! Your mom has cooked for you your whole life and has shared many memories with you in the kitchen. It was her way of showing you her love, so why not give back this Mother’s day and cook something special for her? It’d be far more fun than waiting in line at a restaurant or trying to talk over everyone and lose out on that intimate conversation that you could have right in your own home! You’d be showing your gratitude and you’d be showing her that all that time you spent with her in the kitchen wasn’t wasted time.
Not only is it a time to celebrate your mom, it’s also a time to raise awareness for a cause that many mothers have very dear to their hearts – raising funds and awareness for the fight against breast cancer.
I hope y’all are ready for this Mother’s Day brunch menu! Loosen up those pants (yoga pants anyone?) and let’s dive right on in. I’ve teamed up with KitchenAid for this Mother’s Day brunch and I’m also Cooking for the Cure! Tell your mom to take a backseat this May 13th :) I’ve made it easy for you — I came up with a great brunch menu below that you can serve to mom in bed!
I have made mini orange blossom muffins, mini egg, sausage, & cheese frittatas, and cinnamon apple french toast. You can wash these all down with some mimosas ;)
I’m a huge fan of these mini orange blossom muffins because they’re chock full of orange flavor. It’s not overpowering but these muffins aren’t lacking in the flavor department, they taste so fresh! The glaze also is infused with the orange citrus taste. The muffins itself are extremely moist and soft. It’s because they have sour cream in the batter. It’s all it took to make these tender and delicious. And mini muffins are so easy to eat and dangerous too. It’s too easy to pop these cuties in your mouth!
Alright, this french toast is unreal. If you can, use challah bread (holla for challah, haha) for french toast. It’s thick and has superb taste. The cinnamon apples atop the french toast just rounds out this dish. You can make any topping you want for french toast but I think tying in the cinnamon apples with the cinnamon french toast just finishes it out. I loved how the sticky sweet sauce just falls off the apples onto the french toast.
I mean, just look at that. How hungry are you right now? I personally didn’t use maple syrup for my french toast since I thought the cinnamon apples with their sauce were enough, but Jason used maple syrup, so it’s just really up you and up to mom!
Our last mini item. Mini sausage, egg and cheese frittatas. These were so addicting. The sausage gives this so much flavor and it was so easy to keep eating these. They were small and the perfect bite size. Do you want to know a secret? These weren’t pork breakfast sausage, we went to Trader Joe’s and got chicken breakfast sausage. They taste just as delicious and flavorful. Do you want to know another secret? These were made with egg substitutes. I had a pint of it left over from when I used them in my chicken tamale casserole so instead of tossing it, I decided to use it in this dish! As you can see, they turned out great!
What do you think of this brunch menu for mom? They’re all so easy to make that you can totally pull it off on Sunday! I have all three recipes for you after the cut, and for the mimosas, I simply used orange juice and Prosecco. I don’t think you need a recipe for that ;)
