Nothing makes someone feel like a queen more than sleeping in and being served their first meal of the day on a fancy tray. The whole idea of hotel room service was built around very luxury of breakfast in bed. Is there anyone who deserves a decadent gesture more than mom?
Every single other day of the year, moms are busy taking care of everyone else in the fam. Mornings are rushed making sure lunches are packed, everyone is dressed in weather-appropriate clothes, and everyone else has eaten. This one day of year, make sure she doesn’t have to lift a finger.
Whether you’re in a relationship with a mom or you’re home visiting your own for the holiday, here are five ideas for breakfast in bed that will show how much you care.
Breakfast in bed is what mom really wants for Mother’s Day
As far as egg-centric breakfast dishes go, a quiche is going to show mom you care a bit more than a quick plate of scrambled eggs—and the serving is big enough for the whole fam to keep nibbling at throughout the day. This one is full of veggies. Mom will be so proud!
A bowl of this warm, nutty oatmeal is basically a hug in food form: the epitome of pure comfort and happiness. What’s great about is that you actually bake a big batch of it in a baking dish so when it’s ready, you can dish out spoonfuls for the whole fam. It makes enough where mom won’t have to think about what to make for breakfast for the next several days.
If mom is into matcha, she’ll love this new way to use the green tea. Baking with matcha is easy—you literally mix it right into the muffin batter. And the heat doesn’t change its amazing health benefits or its energy-boosting superpowers.
This recipe is perfect if you want to serve mom breakfast in bed, but you need it…ASAP. (Why do moms have to get up so early?) You can literally make this breakfast in seven minutes using the microwave, making it a Mother’s Day miracle. The best part is, with impressive wholesome ingredients like buckwheat, flaxseed, and applesauce, she’ll never know it was made in a hurry.
If you’re looking for a pastry that pairs perfectly with matcha or coffee, this is it. Working olive oil right into the mix ensures it will come out both moist and dense. The icing is the real show-stopper here, made with coconut butter, hibiscus tea, beet powder, maple extract, and vanilla. Just think how pretty it will look next to a bouquet of flowers.
