Mother's Day is a day to celebrate the mothers in our lives. Although we may be stuck at home, there is plenty you can do to let your mom or mother of your children how much she means to you. From homemade crafts to breakfast ideas, we've got you, and mom, covered.
Mother's Day Breakfast in Bed
French Toast Bake
1 loaf sourdough bread
2 c milk
1/2 c heavy cream
3/4 c sugar
2 TB vanilla
1/2 c flour
1/2 c brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 c butter cold, cut into pieces
Cut loaf into cubes and place evenly in a greased 9x13 pan.
In a bowl, mix together eggs, milk, heavy cream, sugar and vanilla. Pour evenly over bread.
Cover your pan with Saran Wrap and refrigerate overnight.
Mix together flour, brown sugar, cinnamon, and salt in a medium bowl.
Cut in butter with this mixture until crumbly and place in a Ziploc bag and refrigerate overnight as well.
Take pan and Ziploc out when ready to bake. Sprinkle crumbly mixture evenly over the bread.
Bake at 350 for 45 minutes to 1 hour depending on how soft you like it.
Egg White Frittata with Lox and Arugula
8 egg whites, at room temperature
1/2 cup whipping cream
6 ounces lox, chopped into 1/2-inch pieces
1 lemon, zested
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 packed cups (2 ounces) arugula
1 clove garlic, minced
Put an oven rack in the center of the oven. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, whisk the egg whites until fluffy, about 30 seconds. Add the cream, lox, lemon zest, salt, and pepper.
In a 10-inch, ovenproof, nonstick skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the arugula and garlic. Cook, stirring frequently, until the arugula has wilted, about 1 minute. Pour the egg mixture into the pan and stir to combine the ingredients. Cook, without stirring for 4 minutes. Transfer the skillet to the oven and bake until set, about 10 to 12 minutes.
Slide the frittata onto a platter. Using a serrated knife, cut the frittata into wedges and serve warm or at room temperature.
