Quick & Easy Mother's Day Breakfast & Brunch Ideas

Thursday, 8 March 2018
Breakfast in Bed for Mother's Day just got creative with a selection of quick and easy ideas that can be made by kids of all ages, with perhaps a little help from Dad for the younger ones. Say good morning to Egg in Toast, Bacon and Sausage Croissant Rolls and Bacon and Bagel 'Mum'.





Sunday 11th March 2018 is Mother's Day or Mothering Sunday. I hope you are remembering?! My two better had be! 

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.



In this post I'm sharing some 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. For additional options take a look at some other breakfast recipes of mine

Egg In Toast
1 free range egg
1 slice of bread

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. 


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

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


Bacon and Bagel 'Mum'
1 bagel
6 rashers streaky bacon

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 spread with butter. Lay out the bacon and bagel to spell MUM ♥
