Although you should thank your Mother for all she does every day, Mother’s Day is your chance to go all out and show her how much you care! And what says, “I love you, Mom!” better than breakfast in bed? Nothing. That’s what. To start off Mother’s Day on a high note, we rounded up five delicious breakfast-in-bed recipes for you to make for your Mom on her special day, featuring ingredients you can conveniently find at Reading Terminal Market.
Heart-Shaped Eggs and Toast
For a simple breakfast that will surely tug at your mother’s heartstrings, try this recipe from Martha Stewart. This heart-shaped breakfast will show your love in more ways than one. Next time you’re at the Market, pick up some fresh eggs from Godshall’s Poultry. Any mom would love to wake up to find this thoughtful breakfast waiting for them on Sunday morning. We could also add that you can find heart-shaped cookie cutters at Amy’s Place.
Overnight Blueberry Cream Cheese French Toast Bake
The morning of Mother’s Day can get hectic, so make yours easier with this make-ahead French toast bake from LifeMadeSweeter.com. All you have to do is round up the ingredients, chill the dish in the fridge overnight and pop it in the oven the next morning. Pro tip: Since French toast is so bread-focused, the kind you use is key. We recommend picking up a loaf from Metropolitan Bakery or Market Bakery the day before, because slightly aged bread produces the best results!
Eggs Benedict with Smoked Salmon
Treat your mom to a luxurious Eggs Benedict on Sunday morning with this recipe from Goodfood.com. The smoked salmon and scallions add a new twist to this traditional breakfast treat, a combination that will leave her speechless. For good smoked salmon, you can trust John Yi Fish Market and Hershel’s East Side Deli have you covered.
For a healthy start to Mother’s Day, whip up these adorable granola cups from MommieCooks.com. The granola bowls are easy to prepare and are just asking to be filled with yogurt and topped with fresh berries. The recipe calls for old-fashioned oats, wheat germ and flax seeds, which can all be found at The Head Nut. Oh, and the best part: You can make a whole batch and enjoy them for the week!
Spicy Beet Bloody Mary
Finally, we can’t forget breakfast-in-bed’s most popular counterpart: the Bloody Mary. This recipe from countryliving.com switches it up by adding roasted beets into the mix for a distinctively robust taste. For fresh beets, stop by Iovine Brothers Produce, OK Produce or Fair Food Farmstand and let’s get blending!
