Other than being able to sleep in, there’s no better way to start off Mother’s Day than with a delicious brunch (that mom didn’t have to cook) and some coffee. (Please….don’t forget the coffee!) Make this special brunch for your mother or mom-figure in your life, or just send this link to your significant other as a hint ;)
You can even get the kids involved! Older children can help plan the brunch and make the food while younger children can do things like set the table and help put the food in bowls. If there’s extra time, they can even make mom a card or write her a letter to tell her how much they love her.
When thinking about what to make for brunch, keep in mind what your mom’s favorite breakfast foods are, and make sure to plan ahead to get all of the ingredients. Walmart has everything you need for a perfect Mother’s Day celebration, from the food to the flowers.
My favorite breakfast foods are ones that are easy to make and require little time in the kitchen.
Setting out Thomas’® Pre-sliced Plain Bagels and Thomas’ Original Nooks and Crannies English Muffins in a pretty tray and putting out some cream cheese and butter is really simple.
Breakfast casseroles are also perfect for brunches because they can be put together ahead of time. They can be made the night before so they just need to be put in the oven in the morning to cook while your family gets ready for the day. Sinisa and the boys made an Egg, Sausage and Hashbrown Breakfast Casserole and it was delicious!
- 1 lb. of Jimmy Dean® Regular Premium Pork Sausage
- 1 lb. of shredded hash browns
- 4 eggs
- 1 cup of shredded cheese
- Seasoning (to taste)
Directions to make the casserole:
- Cook sausage on the stovetop until fully cooked and chop into pieces
- Combine all ingredients in a bowl and put them into a glass loaf pan
- Bake at 400 degrees for 40 minutes (or until internal temp reaches 165 degrees)
Other things to set out on a brunch table are fresh fruit and something to drink, like milk and juice.
Pretty plates and napkins add some color to the table. Another way to brighten up the brunch table is to add a vase of flowers.
Once the food is ready and the table is set, all that’s left is to eat and celebrate mom!
