A Mother’s Day Brunch

Mother’s day is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate the woman that gave you life than a fancy, home cooked brunch.

I thought I’d share some of my favourite brunch foods for your Sunday brunch with Mom.

First up, coffee.  There is absolutely nothing better than a nice hot cup of coffee in a fancy, spring themed mug.  Coffee truly is the nectar of the Gods.  I usually drink my coffee black, but every once in a while I’ll treat myself to a latte or cappuccino.  I have a bit of a lactose sensitivity, so I don’t over-indulge in dairy often, but Sunday’s are my “eat whatever the heck you want” days, so tummy ache be damned!Brunch 1

I probably overdid it on the breakfast foods, but this is a special occasion after all.

It’s funny how tastes change as you get older isn’t it?  I used to hate eggs, but now, they might be one of my favourites and definitely a breakfast staple.  I really love this book by Cassy Joy Garcia for some delicious paleo recipes.  I don’t keep to a paleo diet, but it certainly does intrigue me, and this book has given me some really delicious recipes that have made their way in to my everyday cooking.

This breakfast sausage frittata is one of the recipes I’ve made most frequently.  It’s super easy to make and the leftovers are pretty good as well.  Served up with some fried potatoes and it’s kind of the perfect breakfast.  You can find the recipe in the book or on Cassy’s website, here.

I also made some stuffed French toast with raisin bread, stuffed with cream cheese and banana, topped with real maple syrup.  Because Canada.

 

Brunch 2

To make this, you’ll need (1 serving):

2 slices of cinnamon raisin bread
2 eggs
3/4 cup Almond Milk (Or real milk)
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/2 banana, thinly sliced
1 1/2 tbsp cream cheese
1 tbsp butter
Maple Syrup

Melt butter in a pan over medium heat.  While the butter is melting, whisk the eggs, milk, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg together for about a minute or until the eggs have completely mixed with the milk.  Drench one piece of raisin bread in your egg mixture and place it in the pan to cook.  Top the bread with the banana slices and cream cheese.  Drench the other slice of bread and place on top of the banana and cream cheese layer (like a sandwich).When the bottom piece of bread has browned slightly, carefully flip the sandwich over and cook the other side.  Top with whatever you’d like, but I like to add a little bit more butter and real maple syrup.

I love a good Sunday brunch and this one was extra tasty.  Also, this is a picture of my dog, just because she’s so stinkin’ cute!
