We update this post every year with new recipes to help you prepare for a special Mother’s Day brunch. Cheers to the wonderful moms out there!
A homemade Mother’s Day brunch is a great way to say a heartfelt ‘thank you mom for everything you’ve done for me’. Gather around the kitchen table to try one of these delicious vegetarian brunch recipes with easy to follow instructions.
Choose mom’s favorites from our list of pancakes, French toast, egg recipes, savory recipes, breads, salads and sweet treats. We even have a couple of gift ideas.
I’m not a fan of tackling the restaurant crowd for Mother’s Day. My goal is to spend quality time with my mother in a comfortable environment. So, for me, the better way is an at home, low key, low fuss celebration with a delicious breakfast or brunch.
We usually keep it simple with bagels and smoked salmon (lox), blintzes with berry sauce and a couple of the brunch recipes below.
For 25 years, my mother and I lived in different cities. We are now reunited in Toronto and I am so grateful she’s still around to celebrate at 94. She is my biggest fan and supporter 🙂
All these Mother’s Day brunch recipes are vegetarian and can be made ahead in whole or in part. Many take less than 30 minutes to make. We hope you choose one or two of them to be the star of the show.
Fluffy Pancakes and French Toast Dishes
Simple Dutch Pancake Recipe
This pancake is puffy, not fluffy. Enjoy the ooh's and ah's from Mom for this impressive Dutch pancake topped with fresh berries. She won't realize how simple it is.
Sous vide poached eggs are simply little miracles, every time. No swirling in vinegar water. No standing over the stove worrying about over cooking. Top them with an easy sous vide hollandaise if Mom is a fan.
The essence of a breakfast strata is eggs, milk, cheese and bread. The personality comes from great fillings – choose the ones Mom likes. Assemble the night before. Pop the casserole in the oven on Mother's day for a great comfort food dish.
This casual, rustic tomato tart with puff pastry would make a lovely brunch addition. The tart works beautifully even when tomatoes are not at their peak due to the vinaigrette dressing that brightens them with fresh herbs, garlic and capers.
If mom loves savory food, try this medley of sweet potatoes, onion, red peppers, apple, spinach & goat cheese wrapped in a flaky buttery puff pastry. It's an easy, elegant, make-ahead delicious brunch recipe for a special occasion.
You'll be happy to know that perfect homemade English muffins are easy to make with good instructions and no special equipment. We show 4 ways to use them for this special occasion. (This is a vegan version with no eggs).
Sinfully delicious and only 10 minutes of hands-on time (with a shortcut), these easy cinnamon buns are a huge treat for any occasion. Make them the night before and pop them in the oven on mother's day.
