Brunch for the Queen: Mother's Day

May 12, 2014

Preparing a brunch for the Queen in my life, my wonderful mother as well as my awesome aunt this past Sunday was actually, fun! & not to mention yummy! I just wanted to share with you a really easy {and adorable} recipe, as well as some photos from our Mother's Day Brunch! 

On the Menu:
Egg in a Basket recipe via
Pillsbury layered biscuits
Make-your-own Fruit Parfait Station
Mini Cinnamon Rolls
Orange Juice

Egg in a Basket: I made the Eggs in a Basket from the recipe which is linked above, my sister actually found the recipe. NOTE: If you are in a hurry and need to do the potatoes in the microwave, go ahead! Just peel them first, and do them for no longer than 3-4 minutes, depending on the size of the potatoes. You don't want to overcook them because they cook while they are in the oven as well! So, yes I do know what to do next time in order to make it look just right. To get it out of the muffin/cupcake holder, I used an icing spatula, liek this one and went around 2-3 times it popped right out! Of course you can put in your own stuff, like cheese, peppers, etc. to make it more filling. 
See the brown things poking up? That's the grated potatoes that supposed to make it look like a basket.

Biscuits: My sister also discovered the wonders of parchment paper when she was baking the biscuits, they were de-lish-ous! 
Make your Own Fruit Parfait Station: This was super-super easy. In one bowl there was yogurt, In separate bowls I had blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries. {You can have whichever fruits you would like}. Instead of using granola, I actually just poured out some Honey Bunches of Oats with Crispy Almonds Cereal. This was an awesome substitute for granola for a number of reasons: 
1. I didn't have to slice and toast almonds + granola. 
2. Because this cereal is low in sugar the cluster and cereal added the perfect crunch and a bit of sweetness! to the parfait. 
3.I knew it would be easy to put back!

Salsa: I personally think the salsa went perfectly with the eggs and hashbrowns. The bell peppers and onions added a nice crunch plus it gave a nice small bit kick of heat to the dish! 
Orange Juice, Coffee, and Water: Choose whichever beverages you would like! Pick something that really goes along with your meal! These went perfect since it was a brunch.

Thanks to the sister for coming up with the awesome idea & doing  the dishes, I love you! 

And of course, the table wasn't complete without beautiful roses for both my mom and aunt :)
