I might seem like a nice person. But I gave my mother hell when I was a teenager. So as an adult, I treat her very, very well. Here are the top Mother’s Day breakfasts that I’ve served up to her over the years. Always with a smile, sweet as an angel. A brat? Who me?? 😇

Mother’s Day recipes for breakfast
1. Blueberry Pancakes
Classic pancakes are good, BUT if you want to shoot straight to the top of her Favourite Child list, go all out and make her BLUEBERRY pancakes…
2. Classic Pancakes
But you don’t have blueberries? Don’t worry! These soft and fluffy pancakes are SO GOOD, they’re guaranteed to kickstart her day the right way. Want to go all out? Add crispy bacon! Sweet-savoury is all the rage right now.
Make it the classic way, with butter rubbed into flour, or the quick way – Lemonade Scones! (And no, they don’t taste like lemonade.) Whichever you choose, jam and cream are mandatory. You’ll make your mum cry if you forget them!!
4. French Toast
It almost seems wrong that we get to use a few sad pieces of stale bread to make mum an amazing breakfast….It’s also so wrong when I pay $15 for French toast at trendy bistros!
If your mum is like mine and has more of a savoury rather than sweet tooth, make her a big fluffy omelette. My favourite – filled with garlic mushrooms and a little sprinkle of cheese. SO GOOD! (Errr – I’m sure mum would like it too 😂)
If you want to aim high and impress the pants off your mum with your amazing culinary prowess, make her a QUICHE! (But actually, homemade quiche crust is super easy to make with a food processor). Fabulous for breakfast, brunch or lunch, and you can fill with anything (just replace my add ins with yours)
7. Mini Quiche
If you like variety – oops, I mean, if your MUM likes variety – make mini quiche. They’re really easy if you use store bought pastry, which I do in this recipe. I’ve shared 4 different fillings, a mix of vegetarian and meat free. One bite babies!
If the thought of dealing with crust is just all too hard, make her a Frittata instead. This baked frittata is super easy – anything goes, pour it all in a pan and bake. It’s basically a crustless quiche. Bonus: It freezes perfectly.
9. Sausage & Egg McMuffin
There is a very high prospect that this will be the RecipeTin Family Mother’s Day breakfast. It’s a long standing family tradition.
Sometimes it’s bacon & egg. Sometimes it’s sausage. Always, there’s cheese.
Eggs cooked in a lightly spiced Middle Eastern tomato sauce, very on-trend with the bistro crowd. Also known as Eggs in Hell or Eggs in Purgatory. Maybe don’t call it that when you serve your mum….😂
And to quench her thirst…
Mimosa – Champagne Cocktail
What kind of Mother’s Day would it be if she didn’t start it off with a pleasant little buzz from a champagne cocktail?? Preferably in bed! (Psst the good thing here is that you can totally get away with using good value champers. But she doesn’t need to know that.)
💐HAPPY Mother’s Day!!💐
To all the mothers of 2 legged and 4 legged babies of all varieties, wherever you are in this world (though presumably staying at home ❤️), I hope you have a wonderful day! – Nagi x
PS I was Googling earlier today and Google tells me that the following questions are among the top things people are googling in relation to Mother’s Day. Quite insightful! 😂
Is today Mother’s Day? Be thankful for the pop up roadside flower stands on Mother’s Day!
How do you make your mum cry on Mother’s Day? I really hope this is for HAPPY tears….!!
How do I deal with an evil mother? My eyes widened when I saw this….but then I realised, I probably would have googled this myself if I had an iPhone when I was 16!!

Imagine if DOZER delivered flowers to you for Mother’s Day….!!!
