Mothers’ Day Breakfast

Mothers' Day

One of the greatest Mothers’ Day traditions is breakfast in bed. Here are some ideas to make this year’s breakfast extra special.

  • Rather than make plain pancakes, dress them up by adding pineapple juice for half the liquid in a pancake mix. Add some flaked coconut as well and top with a berry syrup.
  • Serve waffles with a fruit cream. Puree 1/2 to 1 C fruit and fold into some whipped topping.
  • Use a cookie cutter to cut french toast into the shape of flowers.
  • Add 1/4 t of vanilla (or other extracts) to hot chocolate. Top with whipped topping flavored with  the same extract.
  • Even if you do something simple, add a note to let Mom know how much you appreciate her.
  • Garnish the plate with a few of her favorite candies (Hey; it’s Mothers’ Day. Candy after breakfast is totally acceptable).
  • Add fresh berries to everything (pancakes, waffles, french toast, cereal, oatmeal and even juice).
  • Serve the meal on special dishes.

Being a mom is the most important job in the world. Happy Mothers’ Day to all you moms out there!
