Celebrate the most important woman in your life with a personalized Mother's Day brunch. We have a breakfast recipe for every type of mom, including the farmer's market fan, the foodie, and the traveler. So what are you waiting for? Cook up one of these breakfast pizzas, parfaits, or pancakes, and show Mom how much you care.
Baguettes and breakfast -- Mom's new favorite pair. This Mother's Day, serve up a scrumptious brunch that's as creative as it is mouthwatering. Italian sausage, sweet peppers, and more are baked alongside egg and cheese in this Mother's Day brunch recipe.
Cajeta, the sweet caramel-like syrup drizzled atop these crepes, is sure to satisfy even the biggest sweet tooth. The paper-thin crepes -- similar to pancakes -- get an added boost of scrumptiousness thanks to slices of fruit and toasted coconut.
Does your mom have a fully stamped passport? Transport her abroad with our Asian-inspired French toast strips dipped in marmalade. Bonus: It takes just four minutes to cook the bread strips!
If your mom loves ordering a good pizza pie, this fresh and juicy breakfast version is a produce-packed way to start her day. The elegant pastry pies take just 25 minutes to prepare, so you'll spend less time in the kitchen and more time with Mom.
Bacon makes everything better, and battering and deep-frying makes bacon even better! Make the delicious recipe for your Mother's Day brunch (we reccomend a sprinkling of powdered sugar atop the bacon and a dipping sauce of maple syrup).
Save plenty of time for Mom's favorite activities this Mother's Day with our easy breakfast cookies. Not only are they delicious, healthy, and filling, but the scrumptious cookies are also the perfect go-to breakfast.
Help Mom master morning mealtime by whipping up a batch of our carrot cake-flavor overnight oats. A healthy trio of rolled oats, chia seeds, and Greek yogurt means the so-easy recipe is just as good for you as it is delicious.
If your mom enjoys sampling the latest food trends, she'll love trying intriguing ingredients in her breakfast, such as delightfully floral lavender. A hint of honey sweetens our buttery scones that feature the light herb.
Mom gone gluten free? No fear! Versatile quinoa can be used in savory and sweet dishes alike. Here, we mix in apple juice, peanut butter, and banana slices for a healthy breakfast.
Satisfy Mom's craving for sweet, juicy fruit by adding fresh raspberries and bananas to your favorite pancake recipe. Whole wheat flour and low-fat milk keep the pancakes health-conscious -- each serving is around 300 calories -- while chocolate chips add an extra jolt of sweetness.
If your mom loves to revisit her recipe box, whip out one of the classics this Mother's Day. Omelets are a breakfast favorite and can be made special for Mom with easy variations: Sub egg whites for whole eggs for a lower-cholesterol breakfast, or add green pepper, onion, and ham to make a Denver omelet.
Poblano and jalapeno peppers pack a punch in this meat-and-potatoes pleaser. Perfect for the mom who likes her food hot, the pork-and-pepper hash features sunny-side-up eggs on a bed of Yukon gold potatoes with a blend of spices.

Thank Mom for all she's done with a fancy brunch dish she'd be happy to serve herself.

No meat? No problem. Add a few special ingredients to Mom's morning oatmeal for a vegetarian meal she'll love. Dates and honey lend sweetness, while goat cheese makes the dish deliciously creamy. Choose from quick-cooking, regular rolled, or steel-cut oats.
Biscuits and gravy are a Southern comfort food classic. Give Mom a taste of home with warm, flaky buttermilk biscuits that sandwich layer upon layer of bacon, fried egg, crispy chicken, and warm sausage gravy for a fun twist on traditional biscuits 'n' gravy.
Prepare a breakfast that even the mom with the most advanced cooking skills will appreciate. Make this sweet fruit dish the night before, then top with maple syrup-laced Greek yogurt and orange peel to serve.
