Mother's Day is just around the corner! It is always a fun opportunity to host a springtime brunch gathering with family. Here are our top 20 favorite brunch and seasonal recipes to inspire your Mother's Day brunch menu.
This Rhubarb Crumb Coffee Cake is a delicious, seasonal spring coffee cake that would be perfect for any brunch gathering. If you like, add some strawberries to the rhubarb mixture for that classic spring strawberry rhubarb flavor.
Learn how to make a slow cooker ham with this delicious recipe for Slow Cooker Ham with Honey Marmalade Mustard Glaze. The ham slow cooks during your busy day and comes out with great flavor thanks to the tasty glaze. Leftovers make great ham sandwiches!
Nothing says spring like an ice cold glass of fresh squeeze strawberry lemonade. This recipe is the perfect sweet and tart drink to pair with any springtime gathering. Drink it just like it is, or use it as the base for your favorite adult cocktail (maybe Mother's Day brunch mimosas!).
These Balsamic Berry Salad Lettuce Cups are a tasty light salad for warmer months. Serve as is for a vegetarian option, or add some grilled chicken strips if you'd like to incorporate protein to the recipe.
Nothing says spring quite like Asparagus! Asparagus Salad with Tarragon Vinaigrette is a quick and easy salad made with fresh asparagus and quinoa tossed with a flavorful tarragon-mustard vinaigrette. A great, fresh and savory side to balance out the baked sweets on your brunch menu!
These Baked Eggs with Kale and Sausage are delicious enough to add them to your Mother's Day menu, but they are easy enough to enjoy them for a weekday breakfast as well. This simple to prepare dish will make a big impact on your menu without much effort. If desired, you can swap spinach for kale or change up the meat (bacon or ham work well, too).
Buttermilk Poppy Seed Citrus Scones make a tasty springtime scone. Use your favorite citrus zest in this recipe: grapefruit, lemon, or lime. Or, if you can find them, Meyer Lemons are perfect for springtime!
Grapefruit curd tastes so good served with rolls, muffins, croissants, or scones. It has a bright, springy flavor and color for a great brunch condiment! Be sure to check out the recipe index, because I have a few other curd recipes posted (lemon, orange, and raspberry!).
One of the very best ways to enjoy this strawberries this spring is in the form of these Whole Grain Strawberry Oatmeal Muffins. When baked into a muffin, the strawberries become jammy, and gooey, and perfectly delicious!
These particular eggs are baked in a bed of fresh arugula with a bit of olive oil to soften it. Topped them with parmesan and fresh chives. Arugula and chives should be abundant during spring - you may even find them in your local farmer's market.
For a spring take on the classic cinnamon roll, try this recipe for Meyer Lemon Sticky Rolls with Cream Cheese Glaze. Their sweet and tangy taste is perfect for this time of year! These are one of my absolute favorite springtime treats!
Quiche Lorraine is a perfect springtime egg dish. I love the combination of leeks and bacon. Quick is a great savory side dish for any brunch. Serve it alongside a green or fruit salad and something sweet.
This Mango Raspberry Sangria made with Rosé wine is perfect for spring and summer! This is a fun Mother's Day Brunch Cocktail to offer. You can switch up the fruit choices depending on what you prefer and what is available.
Artichoke Potato Frittata is a great dish for a spring menu. I love artichokes and they pair well with potatoes in this tasty savory brunch dish. Frozen or canned both work, but if you can look for frozen - that is what I prefer in this recipe.
