Easy Mother's Day Brunch Ideas

Mother's Day is almost here. And to me, that means eating, spending time with my family and friends, and ...eating.  If you need some simple Mother's Day brunch ideas that are easy to make, I have you covered!

 Mother's Day Crafts For Kids To Make That Mom Will Love

I like brunches where there are lots of different choices of food to choose from. I mean, this is one of those holidays where you get to munch as much as you want without the guilt, right??  So bring on the heavenly casserole recipes , yummy potatoes, muffins galore and of course, the sweets.

Coffee and a fresh cranberry scone - omg, I would so be in heaven with this treat on Mother's Day. You may be thinking that this scone recipe cannot be easy like I previously promised, but check out the recipe over at I Just Make Sandwiches. It really is pretty simple (but you don't have to share that information with guests!)

Lemon cookies with lemon frosting are a perfectly sweet addition to any brunch. Two Sisters Crafting also has the best lemon buttercream frosting recipe to go on these cake-like cookies. This recipe sounds totally decadently delicious!

Country Living's Spinach and Ham Egg Bake is a perfect brunch idea because they are easy to hold in one hand while sipping a mimosa or juice in the other!

When you are cooking for large crowds, make-ahead recipes are awesome. You can prepare most of this Asparagus Egg Bake Casserole the night before then just pop it in the oven in the morning.

Chocolate-Banana Bread is a must have brunch recipe for any serious chocoholics. If you are looking for easy recipes, you will love this one. Gather the ingredients, mix together in one bowl, and bake.

Oh, by the way, vanilla is one of the ingredients in this recipe. How good is your house going to smell when everyone arrives??

Okay. This chocolate dessert from Half Baked Harvest is beyond decadent. So that is why you must promise to eat these hot chocolate french toast sticks only on Mother's Day. Or maybe another special occasion of your choosing, as long as you only eat this dessert once a year (really, it is for your own good!!)

My weaknesses. Potatoes. And cheese. If this Cheesy Potato Casserole from Plain Chicken happened to be on any buffet table I visit, it would be my number one stop. Even before the desserts. Yep, potatoes trump my sweet tooth. Is that sad or what?

Whatever your plans are for Mother's Day this year, I hope you end up with happy full bellies and lots of wonderful new memories!
