Hosting A Mother’s Day Brunch

Hosting a Mother’s Day Brunch is something I have always wanted to do! Living 413 miles from my mom makes this a little hard for me to do. It doesn’t matter that my mother isn’t here because my mother in law is a mom too and she needs to be celebrated for everything she has done for me over the years!

Hosting a  brunch is easy! You can do it by yourself or have a group of friends help you by making it a potluck type of party! I’ll be sharing some great recipes I found as well as some decoration ideas! I hope you enjoy them!

One of my favorite brunch foods is sausage balls. My mom used to make these for Christmas morning and Easter Sunrise breakfast at church. They are so easy to make.

All you need is:
1 package of sausage (mild or hot depending on your taste)
2 cups of Bisquick pancake mix
1 package of shredded cheese

It really is that easy! I used to help her make them when I was growing up so it’s definitely a recipe that the kids can help make.

Sausage Balls

Ingredients

  • 1 Package sausage (mild or Hot)
  • 1 Package shredded cheese
  • 2 cups Bisquick pancake mix

Directions

Step 1
Mix all ingredients in a bowl with your hands.
Step 2
Roll in to tablespoon sized balls and place on a cookie sheet.
Step 3
Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

Breakfast Casserole was also a favorite in my family while I was growing up. My mom also made it for Christmas morning at my grandma’s house. It take a little more prep work than sausage balls, but it’s still pretty easy.

Breakfast Casserole

Ingredients

  • bread (enough to cover bottom of 9x13 baking dish)
  • 2 Packages sausage (mild or hot depending on your taste)
  • 6 eggs (whisked)
  • cheese (can use shredded or slices)
  • salt (to taste)
  • pepper (to taste)
  • 1 cup milk

Directions

Step 1
Brown the sausage over medium heat until there is no pink left. Drain.
Step 2
Place bread slices in bottom of a 9x13 baking dish. Add the browned sausage on top of bread.
Step 3
Whisk 6 eggs with milk, salt and pepper
Step 4
Pour egg mixture over bread and meat. Let this soak into the bread for 3-4 hours or overnight.
Step 5
Add the cheese on top and bake until set. Usually about 45 minutes, but keep an eye on it. The cheese will become brown and bubbly and the egg will look scrambled or omelet texture.

You can also make coffee cakes like this one! I love strawberry and this one sounds absolutely amazing.

I also really loved these cinnamon cream cheese roll ups! They sound so good! You can’t go wrong with cream cheese at all!

Blueberry muffins are always a brunch favorite. I found a different spin on them with this recipe from Cincy Shopper.

You will also need something to drink at your brunch! This raspberry punch sounds perfect and so simple to make!

Take time this Mother’s Day to do something special for you mom! It doesn’t have to be anything like making her a big brunch or buying her a big gift. She’s always been there for you and loves you no matter what! Happy Mother’s Day! IU MOMMA!
