Mother’s Day Brunch Ideas


I love to cook. And cooking for special occasions is my favorite thing to do. Today I am sharing Mother’s Day Brunch ideas.

I am also sharing two recipes that taste amazing and are easy to make. It’s a good thing these recipes are easy to make because I don’t typically cook on Mother’s Day. It’s my day off! So I am hoping my husband will make these for me instead!

The first item I made was a wonderful Pesto, Sundried Tomato and Onion Fritatta. It took less than an hour to make and can easily be adapted to your own tastes!

I made up the recipe and added ingredients that I already had in my refrigerator and pantry. Which means you can do the same thing.

Basically, I layered the Rondele cheese, pesto, and sundried tomatoes. And then added caramelized onions and eggs. Bake it and you are done.

Every breakfast and brunch needs to include Baked Brown Sugar Bacon. This is the best way to cook bacon! I do need to warn you that you definitely cannot eat only one piece. It’s that good!

Brown Sugar Bacon

The trick to making this bacon is to cook it on racks, so the oil drips to the bottom of a pan. I like to pretend this makes it healthier since the recipe does call for brown sugar. But there are only two ingredients. Bacon and brown sugar. Yum!
