Mother’s Day Brunch Recipes

I love to cook. And this Mother’s Day I am cooking for my mother and father and my family. I know some mom’s want the entire day off but I honestly don’t mind. Cooking a Mother’s Day Brunch is the least I can do for my wonderful mother.

This year I put together a brunch menu and I am really excited about it. Here are all of the recipes!

Mothers Day Brunch

Yogurt Berry Crunch Parfait

Thirty Minute Orange Knots

Avocado Toast with Poached Egg

I found the recipe online (it’s from Donna Hay) for the Yogurt Berry Crunch Parfait. The link is here but I will warn you, the measurements are in grams. I converted it, thanks to my friend Alexa (she works at Amazon.)

Yogurt Berry Crunch Parfait

INGREDIENTS

  • ½ CUP PLAIN (ALL-PURPOSE) FLOUR
  • ¼ CUP SUGAR
  • ½ TEASPOON GROUND CINNAMON
  • ½ CUP ROLLED OATS
  • ¼ CUP UNSALTED BUTTER, MELTED
  • 2 CUPS VANILLA YOGURT
  • 1 CUP FRESH RASPBERRIES
  • 1½ CUPS STRAWBERRIES, HALVED

DIRECTIONS

  1. Preheat oven to 325º. Line a lightly greased baking tray with non-stick baking paper. Place the flour, sugar, cinnamon, oats, and butter in a medium bowl and mix to combine.
  2. Spread over a baking tray and bake for 20–25 minutes or until golden. Set aside to cool.
  3. Spoon half the yogurt into 6 x ¾-cup-capacity containers, top with half the fruit and crumble mixture. Top with the remaining yogurt, fruit and crumble to serve. Makes 6.

The Thirty Minute Orange Knots are probably one of the best breakfast breads I have ever tasted.

Thirty Minute Orange Knots

By the way, don’t ask me why I put a carton or orange juice in this photo. The juice comes from the orange. Duh.

INGREDIENTS

1 16 oz. can refrigerated biscuits

3 T. butter, melted

2 T. granulated sugar

1 T. orange zest

Glaze:

½ c. powdered sugar

1 T. freshly squeezed orange juice

1 tsp. orange zest

 

DIRECTIONS

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix granulated sugar 1 T. of orange zest together in a shallow bowl.

Cut each biscuit in half. Roll each biscuit into a rope. Tie each rope in a loose knot. Tuck the ends underneath the knot. Place on parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

Brush tops of knots with melted butter. Dip buttered tops in orange sugar mixture.

Bake for 8-10 minutes. Watch carefully so the sugar doesn’t burn.

While knots are baking make an orange glaze. Mix powdered sugar, orange juice and remaining orange zest together.

While knots are still warm brush them with orange glaze.

Let cool for about 2-3 minutes. Serve.

You can store Orange Knots in an airtight container and serve the next day. They are best warmed in the microwave for about 10-15 seconds.

Finally, I made the Avocado Toast with Poached Egg.

Avocado Toast with Poached Egg

INGREDIENTS

  • eggs
  • ripe avocados
  • teaspoons lemon juice 
  • slices thick bread
  • salt & freshly ground black pepper
  • teaspoons butter (for spreading on toast)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Poach eggs using your favorite method. I recently bought an egg poaching pan and I love it.
  2. Meanwhile cut the avocados in half and remove the seed. Cut into slices.
  3. Sprinkle avocado with lemon juice and salt & pepper.
  4. Toast the bread and spread with butter.
  5. Assemble accordingly.

You can make the yogurt parfaits and knots an hour or so ahead of time. About fifteen minutes before you are ready to serve, pop the knots in the oven and start the avocado toasts. All of your guests will be pleased!
