The idea of breakfast in bed was never really a pleasant one for my mom. She wanted to be up, dressed, and having fun in the kitchen with her kids, not confined to her covers, where the possibility of coffee spills and crumbs between the sheets made her nervous. Still, brunch on Mother’s Day was and is a fantastic tradition, especially when the menu can be made ahead with help from every family member. Enjoy part or all of the brunch menu below, or mix and match with your own favorite recipes.

Start off with Strawberry-Mint Sparkling Limeade. Adults can enjoy with Champagne or sparkling wine. Opt for club soda for the younger ones.

Strawberry-Mint Sparkling LimeadeThis Spinach and Feta Quiche swaps pie dough for a fun, supercrisp quinoa crust. We love the toasty flavor and sturdy texture of the crust, a perfect vessel for the savory filling.

Spinach and Feta QuichePair the quiche with simple Herb-Roasted Potatoes. Think of this as a hands-free hash, brightened with fresh thyme and parsley.

Herb-Roasted PotatoesWhole-grain Blueberry Oatmeal Muffins round out the meal and can be enjoyed for breakfasts and snacks during the week. You could also add bacon, baked of course, and a simple fruit salad to the table.
