Treat Mom to a Decadent Breakfast in Bed

There’s a reason breakfast in bed is most commonly found in rom coms: It’s a delightfully indulgent way to wake up, and not one we usually have the time (or effort) for. But, this Mother’s Day, how about pulling out all the stops for Mom with an over-the-top breakfast that can be enjoyed without exiting the comforter? We’ve put together some of our favorite sweet and savory dishes that are perfect for serving in bed (with a tray, preferably). Whip up a homemade iced coffee, grab a vase with some lovely spring blooms, and get cooking!

Cinnamon Toast Grilled Cheese

Sweet meets savory in this over-the-top dessert grilled cheese featuring creamy ricotta and brie. Cinnamon-sugar on the outside adds golden color and even more sweetness to this sandy, which can be cut into heart shapes with a cookie cutter for an even more adorable presentation!

Breakfast Sausage + Hash + Eggs

In this springtime egg breakfast, sausage patties are seasoned with sage, thyme, and maple syrup, then seared and paired with a springy hash of asparagus, fennel, pea, and potato—ideal for sopping up sunny fried eggs.


We can never get enough of shakshuka, the Middle-Eastern egg dish that’s saucy, savory, and totally satisfying. Roasted veggies and a hit of salty feta make this a breakfast bowl Mom will rave about!


Dreamy seasonal pancakes

We love finishing our pancakes with a variety of toppings according to the season. For springtime, we suggest cardamom-laced ‘cakes topped with an apricot compote.

A perfect parfait

A breakfast parfait can be a thing of beauty, not to mention a serious cinch to put together. Mix and match the toppings you like, or put a few out in little bowls on a tray, and let Mom craft her own masterpiece.

Cinnamon Rolls

Who can resist a cinnamon roll? Precisely no one, right. This super simple recipe uses one of our favorite hacks—pizza crust—to make that perfect chewy, slightly crisp texture that’s all the more sensational drizzled with sweet homemade icing.
