8 Easy & Delicious Mother's Day Brunch Recipes

We hit the streets of NYC to ask moms what they really wanted for mother's daythis year, and the overwhelming response was flowers and some quality family time.

A family brunch on Mother's Day is the perfect opportunity to sit down with mom, give her those gorgeous flowers and handmade cards, but also gift her with something even more special - a fuss-free family meal she doesn't have to do anything for but show up!

Rather than piling plates high with scrambled eggs and bacon, consider one of these brunch recipes. Mother's Day is a special day, honoring a very special woman and deserving of a special menu. There's also a good chance you'll have a bigger crowd sitting down, and these recipes keep feeding larger tables simple.


  • French toast is a family favorite, but it's also a task and a half to get it prepped for a big gathering. Instead, consider a French toast casserole like this one.

  • The kids may a bit hesitant to eat asparagus when you plop it down on a plate for dinner, but we're betting they'll love this asparagus tart recipe as much as you will thanks to the cheese it's coated with and pastry it lies on.

  • Strata may sound fancy, but all it is is a layered casserole. This ham and cheese one is a favorite of ours and adds a touch of color and sophistication to the table.

  • If you insist on eating bacon, eggs and toast at this brunch, at least get creative with how you serve it! We love this bacon and egg in a toast cup idea for it's simple prep, quick cook time and layered flavors.

  • Cheesy and chock full of sausage this casserole is our heartiest. Dads will appreciate this brunch recipe as much as mom.

  • While your brunch bakes in the oven, keep your family happy with light finger sandwiches. These cucumber and radish ones are perfect for the late spring holiday, but we've got lots of other combos to choose from.

  • Pancakes are great for three reasons - everyone loves them, the topping ideas are endless and they can be kept warm so you can sit down and eat with everyone. These classic buttermilk pancakes with peanut butter and chocolate chips are our faves.

  • We're going out with a bang with this Mother's Day recipe! Apple pie waffles will ensure mom knows just how loved she is and Contributor Krissy Winnick makes it easier to whip these up than you'd think.
