Celebrate the mother in your life with a brunch that’s elegant yet easy. Start the day with finger-food that can be shared at the table or while gathered around the kitchen island for an informal hang. Here’s what to make:
Reminiscent of a Danish but a bit less sweet, these phyllo nests are a sophisticated breakfast pastry mom will love. Phyllo dough sheets are twisted around a dowel and then rolled to create a divot just right for her favorite jam. Serve with sweetened whipped cream.
Fruit salad feels a lot more special when it’s spooned into individual cups. Pineapple, kiwi and raspberries come together for a taste of the tropics, but you could use any in-season fruit mom likes.
You’ve got sweet. You’ve got fresh. Now, round out your Mother’s Day menu with something savory. These flavorful zucchini and tomato quiches will do just the trick. Not only do they taste like summer on a plate, but they’re also a cinch to make.
If you need to serve a particularly hungry crowd, throw some maple-glazed bacon in the oven and pile a platter with bagels, a couple kinds of cream cheese spread and all the fixings. Thirsty too? Pop the bubbly for a batch of mimosas or mix up a pitcher of these pretty cranberry mocktails. And there you have it! A brunch that whips up in an hour and will impress mom all day long.
