23 Recipes for Mother's Day Brunch


When you were a kid, you probably tried making breakfast in bed for mom at least once. Sure, the pancakes were a little burnt and the coffee may have had some grounds floating around, but she showed her delight all the same. And after the meal was over and the thank you hugs and kisses dispensed, she graciously helped you clean up that big mound of flour you spilled all over the floor.

As a Serious Eats reader, you've likely picked up some kitchen know-how since then and are more than equipped to deliver a knockout Mother's Day brunch. To that end, we've collected 23 of our favorite spring-friendly recipes to make on mom's big day.
