Mother’s Day Brunch Recipes
Here are a mix of breakfast and lunch recipes that you can mix and match to make a brunch feast.
Puff Pastry Breakfast Tarts
This recipe is easy to make for a crowd. Squares of puff pastry gets brushed with pesto and topped with asparagus, cheese, and an egg. Once baked the white is fully cooked and the yolk is still runny.
I spent weeks perfecting this recipes for Blueberry Muffins. This recipe makes bakery style muffins, the type that are slightly crisp on the top and fluffy in the middle.
Eggs in Prosciutto Cups
If you want to make brunch, here are some sweet and savory options. Let’s start with the easiest option. The prosciutto egg cups pictured above is a two ingredient recipe! Just place slices of prosciutto in a muffin tin so that they cover the surface of the cups, and crack eggs into the cups. Bake for 20 minutes at 350 degrees and serve.
Lemon Ricotta Pancakes
The lemon gives the pancakes a fresh flavor while the ricotta gives them a spongey texture. I love to serve them with strawberries on top.
Scones are so easy to make and they are a great addition to a brunch. You can serve with jam and/or clotted cream. Or you can top with a vanilla glaze like Starbucks does.
Brussels and Kale Salad
I like to serve a mix of breakfast and lunch foods when I host a brunch. This Brussels and Kale Salad is inspired by the beloved salad at Blue Door Farm Stand in Chicago.
Greek Chicken Pitas
Greek food is so fun for a party. I like to make chicken and then serve it with pitas, tzatziki, feta, hummus, and a tomato cucumber salad and then let people snack or make their own pita sandwiches.
