If you have the joy of celebrating a special mom in your life this year, treat her to a special brunch! We’ve made it easy with two recipes that are easily customizable to fit her taste.
Dutch Baby: Serves 4-8
A mix between a pancake and soufflé, a Dutch baby is a great (and impressive!) way to feed the family without all the flipping at the griddle. Here’s our favorite recipe:
- 1 cup AP flour
- 1 cup whole milk
- 4 eggs
- 2 tbsp sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 4 tbsp butter
- Pinch of salt
Mix all ingredients except for butter together in a blender. Heat an oven-safe skillet in a 425° oven for 5-7 minutes. Melt butter in skillet and ensure it has coated the bottom. Once melted, pour in batter and place skillet back in the oven for 15-20 minutes, or until it is puffed and lightly browned.
Cut into wedges and serve it up right from the skillet. Top with berries, powdered sugar, maple syrup or a squeeze of lemon. Enjoy!
Easy Egg Casserole: Serves 4
Maybe a savory breakfast is more up mom’s alley! An easy egg casserole is customizable and doesn’t require much prep work.
- 11 large eggs
- ½ c. half and half
- 1 ½ c. shredded cheese (any variety)
- Pinch of salt and pepper (to taste)
- Optional extras
- Shredded/cubed potatoes
- Diced bell peppers/green chilies
- Bacon/chorizo/ground sausage
- Caramelized onions
Preheat oven to 400°. Coat an 8×8 inch baking dish with non-stick spray. Crack eggs into a large bowl, add half and half and whisk till frothy. Add salt and pepper, cheese, and any additional extras if desired. Pour into prepared dish and bake for 25-35 minutes or until the center is puffy. Cool before serving.
Serve up one (or both!) and enjoy treating the special woman in your life to a delicious breakfast. Happy Mother’s Day!
