Southern children know how to appreciate their mother every day of the year (at least you all should!), but on Mother’s Day, special treatment is in order. Let’s be honest: breakfast in bed is overrated (and a bit unsanitary). How about giving mom a quiet morning for a change? To really start your mom’s day off on the right foot, this is the year to serve up a brunch buffet for Mother’s Day. Kick off the festivities with a bread basket full of sausage balls with a touch of pimiento cheese or a platter of deviled eggs in mom’s favorite shade of pink. You know mom would be upset if you didn’t include fruits or veggies on her Mother’s Day brunch buffet menu (she taught you best after all). Highlight fresh spring produce with a colorful strawberry salad or asparagus side dish. Once all the kids have their servings of fruits and vegetables, progress your Mother’s Day buffet menu to the heavy hitters. If mom prefers a sweet breakfast, you can’t go wrong with our Cinnamon Roll Strata. If she usually orders savory, try Test Kitchen’s latest and greatest breakfast casseroles, a cheese, sausage and tomato delight. Send Mom away from her Mother’s Day brunch with a slice of something sweet, like our Lemon Bread Cake, to pair with her cup of decaf. Throwing a fabulous Mother’s Day brunch buffet for mom is a surefire way to land in her good graces.
