Treat Mom To Breakfast In Bed This Mother’s Day

Whether you go with the classic scrambled eggs and bacon, or a slightly more custom dish like Fluffy Pancakes with her favourite berries, treat Mom this Mother's Day to breakfast in bed. Here are some ideas to get you inspired for getting mom’s special day started off right.

For a surprise breakfast in bed, try a make-ahead dish (just be sure to keep it a secret the night before) like this Make-ahead Oven-baked French Toast. Simply whisk eggs, milk, brown sugar, orange juice, cinnamon and nutmeg together then allow bread to absorb the mixture in the fridge overnight.

Or sneak downstairs to the kitchen just a little early with the kids, to prepare some Basic Crêpes (crêpe batter can also be made a day ahead) then fill with her favorite berries and a dollop of whipped cream.

Eggs-in-a-Hole is a quick and easy breakfast recipe that only requires a couple of ingredients. Let the kids get hands-on by using different cookie cutter shapes (like a heart) to make mom’s breakfast eggstra special! Pair with crispy bacon or fresh fruit and enjoy as an easy family breakfast.

For another quick breakfast idea, try Breakfast in a Mug. In a microwave-safe mug, simply toss together cubed bread with ham, tomato, cheese, green onion, and the egg and milk mixture. In just a few minutes you’ve got a breakfast for Mom!
