Mother’s Day, held on May 8 in 2022, is the perfect excuse to make an amazing brunch to honor mom and everything she does, day in and day out. We get that planning a Mother’s Day brunch can be difficult and overwhelming, but it does not have to be—especially if you have the right recipe ideas. Take a look at the list below and get cooking!

Recipe #1: Eggs Benedict

Canadian bacon, an English muffin and thick Hollandaise sauce make this Eggs Benedict something of goodness. Since the sauce includes a lot of better, it is best for a once in a while indulgence.

Recipe #2: Best Fluffy Pancakes

These soft and fluffy pancakes have almost a weightless feel, making them perfect to stack and then enjoy. Mix in berries, nuts of chocolate chips for extra flavor. Make sure the batter is not overmixed and that the ingredient amounts are exact. It will help you achieve the texture you want.

Recipe #3: Healthy Granola

This healthier granola features no refined oils, whole grains and only light sweetener. Pecans, pumpkin seeds, coconut oil, the slightest bit of salt, dried cranberries, a few dark chocolate chips and citrus zest make a blend you want to eat plain or place on top of yogurt.

Recipe #4: Food Network’s French Toast

Brioche and challah bread make for some oh-so-delicious French toast. Flavors are absorbed easier and it is perfectly thick and yummy. Cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla add some sweetness, and sugar in the egg batter mixture helps the crust brown and become more flavorful. Top with butter, syrup or powdered sugar.

Recipe #5: Easy Waffles

This easy recipe is unlike other waffle ideas—there are no strange ingredients or difficult steps. Top things off with butter or syrup and serve warm. For extra fun, make a waffle bar, with toppings and mix-ins that

Recipe #6: Cinnamon Toast Crunch Bars

Butter, cinnamon crunch cereal and mini marshmallows are transformed into crunchy breakfast bars. Just combine, pat into a wax paper-coated pan, let harden, slice and enjoy. These are good for a bit, so no worries if there are leftovers!

Recipe #7: How to Make a Smoothie

Yogurt, juice and your favorite fruits can be mixed into a tasty drinkable smoothie. Fresh or frozen fruit works, as does protein powder, nut butter and juice.

Recipe #8: Acai Bowl Recipe

Fiber, antioxidants and healthy fats are in this colorful smoothie bowl. Blend the packets with plant- based milk or water for a creamy mixture, and then top with berries, coconut flakes or whatever topping ideas you can dream up.

Recipe #9: Make-Ahead Croissant Breakfast Sandwiches

Sharp cheddar cheese, Dijon mustard, eggs, ham and ready-made croissants can be transformed into fancy brunch sandwiches which will be wonderful on any pretty platter. Get mini croissants for an extra special take on the sandwich.

Recipe #10: Homemade Cookie Cereal

Sometimes even mom likes sugary cereals. This one is so hearty and tasty, though, that each cereal piece can also be eaten as an energy bite. Talk about double duty. Add to bowl of milk or stash in a backpack to enjoy on Sunday and the days after.

Recipe #11: Scrambled Eggs with Cheese

Hearty eggs are topped with rich cheese for an (almost) complete meal. Top a few slices of toast with the eggs for an extra savory snack or easy pre-brunch breakfast.

Recipe #12: Strawberry Fluff Fruit Dip

Marshmallow fluff, strawberry cream cheese and whipped cream may sound like an expected combination, but it makes a light and fluffy dip! It can even be made a day ahead, as long as it is chilled. Place in a decorative bowl and arrange strawberries and other cut fruit on a plate surrounding it. Dig in!
