Moms work hard taking care of their families. They cook for them and take care of their bodily needs. Wash their clothes. Kiss boo-boos on knees and elbows. They read countless stories, say prayers, and tuck their children into bed at night. What better time to celebrate the hard working, dedicated moms in your life than on Mother’s Day. Why not host a brunch or tea party to honor them? Here are a few Mother’s Day Brunch Ideas to get you started!
Sweet Breads for a Mother’s Day Brunch
Whether you serve muffins, cinnamon rolls, sweet braids, or scones, sweet breads area always enjoyed by both young and old.
My girls love these Blueberry Muffins. As do our grandchildren. After all these years, this recipe is still one of our favorites. Plump, juicy berries. Tender sweet crumb.
Mixed Berry Scones – What’s not to love? Moist, tender crumb with sweet berries. Blackberries. Blueberries. Raspberries. This would be delightful for a mother-daughter tea.
Sourdough Chocolate Croissants (aka pain au chocolat) are out-of-this-world delicious, bakery-style beautiful, and simply wonderful. They are so flaky, they fall apart at the touch. Lots of buttery layers. With chunks of yummy dark chocolate tucked inside the center that leaves you licking your lips for more.
These Cinnamon Rolls are so delightful, I’m sure you will enjoy them and make them time-and-time again. Pillowy-soft dough that practically melts in your mouth. Cream Cheese Icing. Filled with buttery brown sugar and cinnamon.
Easy Cinnamon Roll Twists is a quick and easy recipe made from refrigerator biscuits that we enjoy serving for brunch. It is so sweet and delightful! And especially fun to make with little hands.
Egg Casseroles and More
Who can resist a delicious egg casserole, mixed together with ham, bacon, or sausage and some sort of shredded cheese? We love casseroles for breakfast, especially those that are easy to prepare.
This Weekend Brunch Casserole recipe is simple and delicious. Lined with a crescent roll crust and topped with pork sausage, eggs, and mozzarella cheese. I have been serving this recipe to our family for years. It is wonderful and certainly a family favorite.
This Ham and Hash Brown Egg Casserole is one of the easiest breakfast dishes to make. It’s perfect for when you have company or want something special on a weekend. Just mix it up the night before, cover, and refrigerate overnight. Then pop it in the oven the next morning and leave to bake for almost an hour.
There is something very special about serving French Toast for a breakfast or brunch. Sliced into triangles and served with maple syrup and garnished with powdered sugar. So sweet and delightful.
This Easy Eggs Benedict recipe is one I’ve made for special occasions, and one that always goes over so well. Our family loves it. Creamy poached eggs and thick slices of ham resting on buttered English muffins and topped with a rich, velvety, and very easy to make hollandaise sauce. It’s so good.
Breakfast Quiche is perfect for a weekend brunch or for a light supper with a salad. I love this recipe. It’s simple. And very tasty. It’s elegant and pretty enough for special entertaining, such as a Mother’s Day Brunch!
Fruit and Veggies for the Table
I made this Fresh Fruit Cocktail Salad for our family last year and it was simply delicious. So sweet and refreshing. A perfect compliment to sweet breads or egg casseroles.
This past year, we’ve been making this Easy Breakfast Ambrosia recipe when we have weekend company. It’s so simple to put together and just the right amount of yogurt and fruit to go with muffins, a breakfast casserole, or French toast. Even my husband eats it and he never eats fruit!
This recipe for Honey Balsamic Bacon-Wrapped Asparagus is so delicious and the perfect addition to your next breakfast, brunch, or light supper. The asparagus lightly bakes along with the bacon and is then glazed with honey and balsamic vinegar for a touch of sweet and tangy deliciousness!
These Ranch Veggie Bars are so yummy, packed with fresh vegetables and a layer of ranch-flavored cream cheese. I like serving this at brunches or even tea parties, and they go over very well with our guests. Our daughters always look forward to eating them.
Beverages for a Mother’s Day Brunch
Orange Julius is a recipe that brings back memories from my childhood. Treat your kids (and yourself) to this delicious icy beverage.
For those who love chocolate or iced coffee, here’s an easy and delicious recipe to make at home for Iced Mochas.
