Delicious Mother’s Day Brunch at Home

  • 04.18.21

Mother’s Day is that special day that is up to you to make sure it starts with a delicious breakfast in bed or the garden. Either way, show her your love by putting together a great morning spread with all her favorite breakfast recipes, including fresh fruits and juices, muffins, and eggs.

Or schedule to prepare a fantastic brunch a bit later in the morning, where you can eat quiches, salads, or you can enjoy more protein-based lunch recipes.

All the wonderful motherly figures in your life deserve a special day with decadent cakes, sweet drinks, and all your love.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Raspberry Bakes French Toast

An all-time favorite in our family. The wonderful breakfast can be assembled the night before, brought back to room temperature, and baked the morning of Mother’s Day. Super delicious, but I will let you be the judge of that.

Sweet Potatoes Muffins

Not too sweet but light and delicious, these muffins will be the hit of the day. Served with whipped honey butter with jam or just by themselves with a great cup of coffee. Simply divine.

Prawns Cocktail with Kiwis

It is a great brunch starter as it can be prepared the night before and served with the kiwis and shredded salad the day of Mother’s Day. If you love seafood, this will soon become your favorite, hands down. Elegantly served on old-fashioned champagne cups, it will win your mom’s heart and everyone too.

Mushroom Goat Cheese Tarte

Nothing more traditional than a good tarte for brunch. The goat cheese gives it that wonderful savory flavor, and the mushrooms bring it all back. A touch of brandy or Cognac will lift the flavor.

Quiche Lorraine

You cannot say brunch and not having a quiche. Traditional French brunch, lunch, dinner go-to dish. Easy to make, perfect for all occasions. So simple to make too, which is a plus. A chilled glass of Champagne, and you have a perfect meal. A side salad is all you need if you are a small crowd.

Zucchini Tomatoes Gratin

Here is a fantastic dish that is not only very simple to make, requires a few ingredients, and is absolutely delicious from the first bite. Spring with every bite.

Panzanella Caprese Salad

The combination of two recipes makes this recipe a fantastic addition to any brunch. Furthermore, you can let your imagination take over and give it your own flavor and style.

Delightful nutty flavor farro served with roasted peppers gives you a fantastic healthy plate of goodness.  Do not take my word for it, but it a try. Served alone or with fish.

Key Lime Pie

Dessert is as important on Mother’s Day as the meal itself, so why not indulge in a couple of delicious recipes. To all the sweet tooth lovers here is a super easy Key Lime Pie for you. Flavor and more flavor. An all-year dessert in my book.


The French in me could not help to share one of my favorite. I have been making this all my life and never get tired of it. Only four ingredients will give you the moistest, flavorful dessert that you ever had. Served with ice cream, fresh fruits, or just by itself.


Bon Appetit and Happy Mother’s Day!
