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.)
- 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
- 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.
- Spread over a baking tray and bake for 20–25 minutes or until golden. Set aside to cool.
- 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.
- 1 16 oz. can refrigerated biscuits
- 3 T. butter, melted
- 2 T. granulated sugar
- 1 T. orange zest
- ½ c. powdered sugar
- 1 T. freshly squeezed orange juice
- 1 tsp. orange zest
- 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.
- 4 eggs
- 2 ripe avocados
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 4 slices thick bread
- salt & freshly ground black pepper
- 4 teaspoons butter (for spreading on toast)
- Poach eggs using your favorite method. I recently bought an egg poaching pan and I love it.
- Meanwhile cut the avocados in half and remove the seed. Cut into slices.
- Sprinkle avocado with lemon juice and salt & pepper.
- Toast the bread and spread with butter.
- Assemble accordingly.
