Breakfast-in-bed is sure to bring a bright smile to mom’s face on the morning (or early afternoon) of her special holiday. After all, according to mom, “Breakfast is the most important meal of the day”! And when is the last time mom took (or even had) the time to relax indulgently in bed while the hubby and kids take care of spoiling her?

Give the #1 lady in your life the wake up call she deserves, by preparing her a breakfast or brunch filled with love…


1. Eggs in the Hole with Sweet Chilli Sauce

Around my household, mom made “eggs in the hole” every single Sunday morning, as far back as I can remember. My brother and I loved how mom cut holes in thick sliced bread using a juice glass. Heated olive oil in her cast-iron frying pan while flipping the breads slices with one hand and cracking an egg with the other. Now this recipe gets a adult-upgrade with the addition of a delicious sweet chilli sauce on the side…just for mom.



2. Creamy, Fruity Stuffed French Toast Hearts

Women in your life may come and go, but mom’s love will ever be consistent. Show her some real love in return by grilling up a homemade, heartfelt, heart-shaped breakfast in bed she won’t soon forget. The these French toast sammies are smeared with a thick layer of cream cheese and fruit preserves, cut using a heart-shaped cookie cutter, dipped in an egg and vanilla-infused mixture, grilled to golden brown perfection, and drizzled with warm Maple syrup.

3. Overnight Pecan Sticky Buns

Give the classic morning sticky bun an upgrade worthy of mom’s praises. She’ll be impressed just for the fact that the baking is being done by someone other than her for once! You can even whip up a dozen of these flaky, ultra soft treats the night before so mom can sleep in and eat whenever her heart desires the next day. Tempt her out from under the covers with the irresistible smells of buttery pastry, carmel sauce, and crunchy, buttery pecans!



4. Poached Eggs on Avocado Toasts

Swap the unhealthy fats for heart-healthy fats in mom’s morning meal! This fresher take on eggs Benedict will be sure to help mom rise and shine all day long. Simply toast a English muffin or two slices of mom’s favorite bread. Lightly poach two eggs (to the desired hardness). Mix smashed avocado with a bit of lemon, salt, and pepper. Spread toasted muffin halves with a bit of butter and avocado mix. Top with an egg, a bit of grated cheese, and a grilled tomato slice.



5. Nutella Expresso Mug Cake with Fresh Raspberries

Now we know that eating dessert for breakfast is probably against the rules…let alone eating it in bed (think of all the crumbs). However, we almost guarantee that mom will make an exception when she sets sights on this decadent dessert for breakfast worthy mug cake. Plus, it’s rather simple to make this ooey-gooey cake overflowing with warm milk, flour, cocoa, eggs, sugar, nutella spread, and as many fresh, juicy berries and whipped cream as you can top it with!



6. The Great Breakfast Burger

Who says mom’s day has to begin with boring breakfast staples? Throw the rules out the window on Mother’s Day by treating her to a juicy, thick, flavour-filled breakfast burger. This breakfast sammie features a spicy sausage patty, topped with melty harvarti cheese, thick bacon slices, and a tangy tomato relish loaded on a toasty ciabatta bun. Add a layer of fried egg at mom’s request.



7. Raspberry Almonds Scones

You’ll make them once for Mother’s Day, but mom will be begging you to make them for every single special occasion afterwards. These super flaky, crumbly, buttery scones are bursting with fresh, juicy, tart yet sweet raspberries. Present them proudly to mom for breakfast, bunch, or even as dessert on her special day. The marriage of fruit and sweet almond glazed pairs perfectly with mom’s morning coffee or tea.




Anna adores cooking, drinking wine, and listening to records, but she does a lot of yoga to balance things out ;) This explains the black bean brownie disaster of 2007 (don't bring that up). She's noshed in countries like Greece, Turkey, France, Ireland, Costa Rica, and numerous other weird, yummy places that will get her waxing all poetic about her favorite recipes.
