What better way to show love and appreciation for Mom than with an extravagant sweet and savoury spread?
If the thought of putting together a well-rounded brunch intimidates you, don’t fret! You don’t need to be a top chef to create something that will wow Mom. Follow these six steps to create a beautiful homemade brunch that will make Mom feel treasured on her special day.

1. Choose the Star of Your Brunch

Brunch

Every mouthwatering brunch spread has a main event – something that could stand on its own. Pick a main dish for your brunch, then build your sides to complement it. Here are a few ideas for what could be the shining star of your brunch spread.

CROQUE MADAME

Breakfast sandwich, but make it elegant. You don’t need to be a top chef to make a delicious Croque Madame sandwich. This one is sure to impress mom!

You May Want to Pick Up:

  • Croissants
  • Fresh eggs
  • Farm Boy™ Smoked Boneless Ham
  • Grainy Dijon Mustard
  • Applewood Smoky Cheddar or Mom’s favourite melty cheese.

Check out our Chef recipe for our take on Croque Madame sandwiches.

DELUXE FRENCH TOAST

Delicious French toast relies on quality bread and fresh toppings. If you plan on making Mom some French Toast this Mother’s Day, try it making it with fluffy challah bread, our soft Cinnamon Raisin Bread, or even sliced fresh French baguette!

SAVOURY FRITTATA

Frittatas are the perfect way to use up leftover veggies in your fridge. Just chop any veggies you like, combine them with your eggs and grated or crumbled cheese of choice, and bake! Pro tip: chop your veggies the day/night before so you can spend less time cooking and more time enjoying brunch with Mom on her day!

You May Want to Pick Up:

  • Fresh eggs
  • Gruyere Cheese, cheddar cheese, feta cheese, goat cheese, or try one of our Vegan Cheeses!
  • Fresh veggies like mushroom, onion, spinach, peppers

Here’s our Chef recipe for a Cheesy Spinach & Sundried Tomato Frittata!

2. Prep a Simple Side Salad

Salad

Get your greens in! Toss up fresh greens and your favourite dressing to prep a simple side salad for your brunch spread.

If your menu doesn’t include any fresh fruit, consider prepping a simple fruit salad. Slice up some of Mom’s favourite fruits in a bowl, add a squeeze of fresh lemon, a drizzle of real maple syrup, and toss gently to combine.

You May Want to Pick Up:

  • Fresh Fruit (berries, mango, peaches, pineapple, melon)
  • Lemon
  • Spinach, arugula, field greens, or preferred salad blend
  • Your favourite Farm Boy™ Dressing

3. Add Your Savoury Sides

Savoury Sides

Consider prepping a bowl of scrambled eggs or crispy bacon to complement your spread, especially if your main event is something sweet like French toast or waffles.

Pro tip: try cooking your bacon in the oven on a baking sheet with parchment paper to avoid any greasy stovetop mess.
