Quick & Easy Mother's Day Breakfast & Brunch Ideas

Sunday 15th March 2015 is Mother's Day or Mothering Sunday. Traditionally children and young people who were "in service" (i.e.household servants) were given a day off on the forth Sunday of lent so they could visit their families (or return to their "mother" church). The children would pick wild flowers along the way to place in the church or give to their mothers. Eventually, the religious tradition evolved into the secular Mother's Day gift giving as we know it.


The Good Family Food Facebook page asked my to come up with some ideas for fun quick and easy breakfasts that could be made by kids of all ages, with perhaps a little help from Dad for the younger ones.




EGG IN TOAST



Preheat oven to 200c
Use a cookie cutter to make a hole in a slice of bread
Place both pieces of bread on a well greased/lined baking tray
Crack an egg into a a dish and carefully pour it into the hole in the bread
Make sure you get the yolk in first, you may not have room for all the white
Bake in the oven for approximately 10 mins until the egg is set and the toast crispy.

Breakfast - Egg In Toast - Heart - Mothers Day, Valentine's

BACON & EGG CROISSANT ROLLS
Ingreedients

1 Tin of 6 Ready to Bake Chilled Croissant Dough
6 Scotch Beef Sausages
100g Grated Scottish Cheddar Cheese
6 Rashers of Streaky Bacon

Method
Preheat the oven to 200c
Place Sausages on a baking tray and cook in the oven for 20 minutes
Meanwhile open the tin of croissant dough and divide into its 6 sections.
Sprinkle each triangle with cheese and top with a rasher of streaky bacon
One the sausages are cooked place on on top of each and roll up
Bake for 15 minutes


Breakfast - Sausage, Bacon & Cheese Croissants




Mum's the word with my final breakfast idea. Grill 6 rashers of streaky bacon and split and toast a bagel. Cut the bagel into a U shape and lay out the bacon to spell out MUM.
