When I started to think about putting together a celebratory Mother’s Day brunch menu (or any brunch menu for that matter), I first consider how many people I’m having over and how many dishes I am willing to prepare early in the day. At the very least, I like to serve a fun drink (whether alcoholic or non), a “main” course which is generally savory, and something a little bit sweet and bread-y. Also, you want to strike a balance between dishes that can be (mostly) prepared in advance and some that might need some last-minute attention.This Mother’s Day menu, which weighs heavily on springtime produce, has something for everyone: a fruity cocktail, a yummy vegetarian frittata, a hearty savory bread pudding, some little muffins, a glammed-up potato dish (everyone loves potatoes), and a fruit component that can act like dessert. Now I just need to get someone to make this for me on Mother’s Day!Related
