I don’t know about you, but my vision for a perfect Mother’s Day isn’t necessarily a day spent with my kids. Well, that’s not entirely true. I wouldn’t mind sleeping in, having them greet me with a hand-crafted Mother’s Day card, or a thoughtful Mother’s Day gift, and a warm hug (before I blissfully spend some time doing something alone). It’s not that I don’t love my children, of course, but sometimes the task of making Mother’s Day magical ends up falling on the shoulders of mothers themselves.

Whether you’re celebrating with your immediate family or gathering with a larger group to commemorate the day, savoring a delicious brunch is always a good move. But, if you’re hosting, we absolutely want to make your life easier, mama, so we’ve gathered together a number of the best Mother’s Day brunch recipes—from french toast sticks and waffles to avocado toast and a delicious quiche. Whatever your plans, we are wishing you a wonderful and stress-free Mother’s Day.
