4 Mother’s Day Breakfast Recipes

Mother’s Day Breakfast Recipes

What do I want on Mother’s Day?  I honestly never give that question much thought because I’m typically too worried about what I need to be doing for everyone else.

But one thing I do know is that my daughters love to cook breakfast for me on Mother’s Day and there’s nothing I enjoy more.  No gift or expensive dinner night out can amount to the joy I get from watching how excited this 8 year-old and her younger sister are about cooking breakfast on their own.  They pick flowers from our garden and get their dad to pour me coffee.

If you’re looking for a fun and simple Mother’s Day Breakfast recipe, here are four of my favorite.
