Amazing Mother's Day Brunch Recipes

I couldn’t be more grateful to be celebrating my third(!!) Mother’s Day this month with three beautiful boys. Motherhood is crazy, exciting, scary, fun and every emotion in between, and moms truly are superheroes! Big shout out to all of the mothers and mother figures out there — you’re absolutely incredible.

This weekend I put together over 50 of the best brunch recipes that are perfect for Mother’s Day. Whether you get to cook them for her in person or are celebrating afar, these Mother’s Day brunch recipes are ones she’ll love.

You’ll find a mix of sweet and savory, and I’ve indicated them as vegan, vegetarian and/or gluten free for easy scrolling.

Pick out a few of her favorites, get cooking and baking, and enjoy! Sending love from this mama to all of the others out there.

Gluten free = GF

Vegan = V

Vegetarian = VT
