Whether dad and the kids serve up breakfast in bed or Mom does most of the cooking herself, we’ve got the brunch recipes all moms love to cook and eat, from classic eggs Benedict to muffins to decadent chocolate waffles. But regardless of who does the cooking—just be sure to help Mom wash those dishes.

  • Recipe

    Asparagus & Fried Eggs on Garlic Toast

    Elevate eggs and toast into something special for your Mother’s Day brunch. The softly cooked egg yolks in this dish become a delicious sauce for the toast and asparagus.

    Ricotta Blintzes with Dried Fruit Compote

    This classic brunch dish consists of a creamy ricotta filling wrapped in tender crêpes and cooked in butter until golden-brown. It's topped with a sweet-tart compote of dried cherries, apricots and figs.

    Chocolate-Hazelnut Waffles

    Want to really impress the Mother’s Day brunch crowd? Far from innocent breakfast fare, these deep chocolatey waffles are made all the more sophisticated by a seductive nutty Frangelico brown-butter syrup.

    Asparagus, Ham and Mushroom Strata

    This strata is the perfect make-ahead. It makes a gorgeous centerpiece, it’s delicious, and it can be assembled up to two days before brunch and baked just before serving.

    Creamy Scrambled Eggs

    This truly tender, creamy scramble can be made brunch-worthy simply by adding 2 Tbs. chopped smoked salmon, 2 Tbs. cream cheese, and 1 tsp. thinly sliced scallions.

    Pancake Soufflé Muffins with Strawberry-Maple Syrup

    These slightly sweet treats are a delicious cross between a muffin, a pancake, and a soufflé. Egg whites beaten to stiff peaks help them rise, and buttermilk gives them tang.

    Sour Cream Coffee Cake with Brown Sugar Streusel

    This is the perfect coffee cake to serve to guests as they arrive for brunch. While they’re nibbling, you can finish frying or poaching eggs for the next course.
  • Recipe


    This Tex-Mex adaptation of scrambled eggs with corn tortillas was originally created to use up stale corn tortillas, and it’s perfect for a crowd. It holds up well, and guests can customize their breakfast with condiments like salsa, chipotle sour cream, green onions, and diced avocado.

    Classic Eggs Benedict

    Smoked Salmon, Goat Cheese & Artichoke Quiche
