Best Mother’s Day breakfast and brunch recipes
If you really want to earn some extra brownie points, go the whole hog and treat your mum to a slap-up three course Sunday lunch with our simple but impressive recipes. We’ve included starters, mains and desserts, so all three courses are covered.
Cauliflower soup with cheese straws
Start your Mother’s Day feast with a warm, cosy bowl of trendy cauliflower soup. It’s super creamy, easy to make and comes with twisty homemade cheese straws on the side.
Baked-in-the-shell queenie scallops
Treat your mum like royalty with our baked-in-the-shell ‘queenie’ scallops. A pretty and luxurious starter dish that will make your mother feel oh-so-special.
Fig, goat’s cheese and pistachio salad
This recipe for fig, goat’s cheese and pistachio salad is really quick and easy to make but packs in lots of great flavours. Plus it looks so pretty on the plate, drizzled with a little olive oil.
Roast chicken with garlic and thyme croutons
Everyone loves a Sunday roast (especially mum), and this roast chicken with garlic and thyme croutons makes it even better. Big chunky pieces of sourdough make a trivet for roast chicken and soak up all the delicious juices while it cooks.
Maryland stuffed ham
This recipe stuffs brined ham with a piquant mix of highly spiced greens. Not only does this cut through the rich meat beautifully, but it looks great on the plate. Serve with the usual Sunday dinner sides (extra roast potatoes for mum).
Roast shoulder of lamb and root vegetables with an onion sauce
Just the ticket for a special Sunday dinner with the family, roast shoulder of lamb is served with baked Jerusalem artichokes and parsnips. Making your own onion gravy is really worth the extra effort and will more than likely impress your mum!
Pork belly and potatoes baked in milk, bay and smoked paprika
Pork cooked in milk is tender and succulent – this recipe is more about the meat than the crackling. For optimum crackling, cook for longer at the higher temperature before reducing.
Luxury fish pies with rösti topping
This recipe uses the luxury fish pie pack from Skipper’s Choice, a fish-box delivery business. You can also buy fillets of haddock, smoked haddock and salmon, cut them up yourself and mix in some prawns.
Toad in the hole
This one is an oldie but goldie and will be on the dinner table in less than an hour. Remember to serve with mustard! And if mum’s really hungry, perhaps some mashed potatoes on the side.
One-pot pasta with goat’s cheese and spinach
This pasta combines wilted spinach and soft goat’s cheese to create a creamy and rich dish. A lovely vegetarian option that works best when garnished with some extra parmesan.
No Mother’s day is complete without something sweet to finish off the day. Try one of our easy, indulgent recipes for a showstopping dessert!
Salted butterscotch apple tart
This sweet and salty indulgent pudding looks super impressive but is easy to make. Arrange the apples just right and you’ll get the perfect pinwheel shape.
For the mum who enjoys a little booze in her dessert, this tiramisu recipe combines creamy Baileys with soft sponge fingers, strong coffee and sweet almond liqueur to make a indulgent Italian pudding.
Rhubarb Bakewell tart
This is a modern twist on a British favourite made using rhubarb. Rhubarb is in season from February until May, so make the most of it!
Spiced berry slump
A slump is similar to a cobbler but with less fuss. The berries bubbling through the topping give this a more rustic feel and should be enjoyed warm with a nice big scoop of vanilla ice-cream.
Peanut butter and banana self-saucing chocolate pudding
This chocolate self-saucing pudding uses smooth peanut butter and banana to create this deliciously rich cake. Mum will certainly approve!
Perfect lemon meringue pie
Treat your mum to a classic, impressive lemon meringue pie with crisp pastry, tart curd and fluffy meringue that’s really easy to make.
There’s always room for…
A couple more treats that we’ve picked out with mum in mind. Cocktails and truffles are the icing on the cake of a perfect Mother’s Day meal!
Whitley Neil aviation cocktail
A cocktail from gin makers Whitley Neil, made from maraschino liqueur, freshly squeezed lemon juice, a healthy glug of Whitley Neil gin, and some chilled mineral water.
Gingerbread and espresso martini cocktail
This velvety smooth, gingerbread cocktail is the perfect warmer for chilly days – or as a cheeky, alcoholic alternative to pudding.
Peanut butter pretzel truffles
So much nutty, crunchy, chocolatey goodness rolled into one bite-sized truffle – the perfect ending to any Mother’s Day meal.
