We all know the cliché – mom awakes on Mother’s Day to a surprise breakfast in bed of barely-palatable eggs or a soggy bowl of cereal.
Here at Hempler’s we love all things family, all things food, and all things tradition. And we believe that with just a little help from dad, kids can make mom a Mother’s Day meal that she’ll absolutely love.
Avocado Toast – This simple dish is totally trendy right now and needs no more kitchen skills than using a toaster. If you want to make it a little more fancy, top it with a fried egg and sprinkle with crumbled bacon.
Breakfast Sandwich – Put the kids in charge of toasting the croissant or English muffins and assembling the final sandwich. Meanwhile, the grown-up can take charge of the stove-top cooking. Our European Center Cut Bacon would be perfect in this thanks to its round shape.
Fruit Skewers – Get pre-cut fruit from the grocery store and have the kids skewer them for a beautiful, colorful side to your main dish.
Waffle Bar – Don’t go crazy and try to do Belgian waffles since those are super labor-intensive. Instead use a mix (or even frozen waffles) and have the kids set up cute toppings like fruit, whipped cream, or hazelnut spread to take it up a notch. While the waffles are cooking, cook some Hempler’s bacon in the oven for a savory side.
Breakfast Casserole – These are awesome because while it might take awhile to cook in the morning, ALL the prep work is done the night before. Plus you can do any stove-top browning or chopping of veggies before the kids get involved so they don’t need to even know it’s been done. All they have to do is assemble the night before, and bake in the morning.
Breakfast Pigs in a Blanket – Pre-cook some Hempler’s breakfast sausage links, then have the kids wrap them in crescent dough, and bake them like a regular piggie. Serve them to mom with syrup to dip. There are tons of variations of breakfast pigs in a blanket online.
Quiche – Nothing says “this is a special breakfast” like a quiche. It’s primarily assembly with little to no stove-top cooking where kids could get burned. Use cooked ham or bacon along with mom’s favorite cheese as your filling, pour in your egg mixture, and pop it in the oven.
What’s the go-to Mother’s Day breakfast in your family?
