Do you need a last minute Mother’s Day idea for mom? You could go with some macaroni art, a homemade card, or take the kids shopping for a present she may or may not want. But nothing says love more than a home cooked meal--in bed.
For once, let mom sleep in--then surprise her with her favorite magazine and a tasty breakfast.
Short on ideas? Not to worry because these recipes are easy, you can even recruit the kids to help.
1. Egg in a Hole
Show mom some love with a heart shaped egg and some toast. Kid Friendly Step: Show them how to safely use a cookie cutter and let them cut out the hearts.
2. Green Chile Cheese Bake
An egg bake is simple, full of flavor, and always a crowd pleaser. Kid Friendly Step: Allow them to put the chilies and the cheese into the bowl and mix them together.
3. Citrus Parfait
If mom likes something lighter in the morning, this creamy and sweet parfait is perfect. Kid Friendly Step: Have the kids mix together the yogurt and the honey. While assembling the parfait let them put the pieces of fruit in.
4. Breakfast Quesadillas
It’s a holiday so allow mom sometime to indulge with this cheesy and gooey recipe. Kid Friendly Step: Let the kids sprinkle the cheese into the pan. Once the quesadillas are on the plate have them decorate with slices of tomato and avocado.
5. Banana Breakfast Bread Pudding:
Looking for something just as sweet as mom, but still on the healthy side? This lighter version of a classic has got you covered. Kid Friendly Step: For a little bit of fun have the kids mash the bananas.
6. Breakfast Casserole
This is a fantastic recipe to share with the whole family. Whip it up early in the morning and then pile into bed together to enjoy Mother’s Day as a family. Kid Friend Step: Have them put all the solid ingredients into the dish (bread, sausage, asparagus, ETC).
