Gift Ideas for Mother’s Day
Baked French Toast
Preparing French toast in a frying pan can be time-consuming. Each slice of bread needs to be individually dipped in the egg mixture and then fried on a griddle or in a frying pan. It can take a long time to do this, which may spoil the surprise! If your mom loves French toast, try this baked version instead. Suggestion: prep the night before. All you need to do is wake up early enough to put it in the oven without Mom noticing.
Greek Yogurt Parfaits
You can easily make these Greek yogurt parfaits the night before. If you decide to substitute granola for the wheat berries, you may want to make it in the morning to prevent the granola from getting soggy. However, you can quickly assemble all the ingredients so that all you need to do in the morning is place the ingredients in the serving glass.
The nice thing about fruit salad is that you can make it up to three days in advance. It also accompanies other breakfast dishes very well. If your mother likes to eat a light breakfast, fruit salad is a perfect main course! Make extra fruit salad so mom will have extra to eat throughout the week. Having leftovers means that she won’t need to make breakfast for herself for at least the next few days!
With the help of prepackaged pizza crust and a few simple ingredients, you can whip up this dish in a snap! The fun thing about pizza is that anything goes. Just roll out the pizza dough add your sauce, cheese, and other toppings. You can substitute regular tomato sauce with things like jam or chocolate spread for breakfast. Top with mom’s favorite cheese and toppings and bake in a preheated 350° oven until cheese melts. Here’s a breakfast pizza recipe you can try.
Serve the breakfast on a decorative tray with a small gift and some fresh cut flowers, and she’ll feel pampered on her special day!
