Mother’s Day Brunch Recipes

As an Amazon Associate, I earn from qualifying purchases.

I remember once asking my dad what he was getting my mom for Mother’s Day and his response was “Nothing. She’s not my mom.” Technically the old Scrooge was right but some flowers would have been a nice gesture! My son was born a couple of days before Mother’s Day four years ago so I received my first Mother’s Day card when he was just two days old. I’ve received a card every year since but my son isn’t at the age yet where he brings me adorable homemade crafts from school. For every special holiday, we make a delicious meal to enjoy together and brunch is a Mother’s Day tradition around here. We always invite my mom too since we know my dad won’t be making her any toast. {wink}

My husband doesn’t cook much so the meal preparation will be up to me. That’s okay by me as long as he does the dishes! I haven’t decided what we’ll make for Mother’s Day brunch yet but we’ve been trying some delicious egg recipes from the website. Eggs are such a nutritious choice and when I buy from Canadian egg farmers, I know I’m buying fresh, local, and high-quality eggs. Did you know that one large egg is 70 calories and has 6 grams of protein? It’s no wonder why so many people choose to start their day with eggs – that protein will help keep you energized all morning! Not only are eggs high in protein but they provide 14 essential nutrients that are good for your bones, teeth, skin and eyes. I know some people skip the yolk thinking that it’s a healthier choice but did you know that most of the egg’s nutrition is in the yolk? Here are some great facts on Egg Nutrition from the Egg Farmers of Canada. Whether you’re looking for classic white or brown eggs, omega-3 or organic, or free range, the Canadian egg farmers provide all of these options.

Kentucky Scramble

Kentucky Scramble:

While browsing the recipe section on, I came across a Kentucky Scramble recipe that I knew my family would love! It’s loaded with healthy eggs and vegetables and it includes something my husband can’t resist – bacon! I made this recipe for a weekend brunch and we had enough left over for supper. I love the addition of cream cheese. I wouldn’t have thought of that for a scramble egg dish.

I’m also trying to perfect the omelette but my technique could use some practice. I tried the Greek Omelette recipe and it was so delicious. I loved the addition of feta in an omelette!

  1. my fav recipe is baked blueberry French toast! Eggs, milk, cream cheese, maple syrup, blueberries, and bread (cubed). You prepare it the night before so the bread soaks up all the yummy goodness and then pop it in the oven in the morning. Easy! 🙂

  2. My mum and I have started eating eggs, every day. She has a pretty basic pallet, but would enjoy the Kentucky scramble minus the cream cheese!

  3. Eggs Benedict for Mother’s Day
    Lightly brown slices of back bacon, poach eggs, toast English muffins, make blender Hollandaise. Assemble and pretend it took hours.

  4. easy meal of scrambled eggs with cream cheese, cheddar cheese and sauted peppers & onions. Accompany it with a warm gluten free cinnamon bun–YUMMY!

  5. I do elderberry Pancakes (with real maple syrup & dusted with icing sugar) with bacon & soft boiled on the side

  6. Breakfast is bed. 2 eggs overeasy, bacon, hash browns, and rye bread. And a nice cup of English Breakfast tea to wash it down

  7. Sunny side up eggs, with buttered yellow toast. It was the way mom always made eggs for me, and it makes me happy when I eat it 🙂 Plus, I love dipping my toast!!

  8. Eggs Benedict are one of my and mothers favorites so thats what I’m making with steamed vegatables

  9. My favorite Mother’s Day recipe is a casserole made with layers of bread, eggs, ham, milk and cheddar cheese.

    I’m going to try this Kentucky Scramble — looks delicious!

  10. I love eggs in a nest. Cut a square out of a piece of buttered bread. Put it on a fry pan. Crack an egg in the middle. Flip over once and add cheese on top Mmmm
