Mums are simply amazing. They can manage to be fabulous at work and still be our fun and caring mums at home. So on mum’s special day, show how much you appreciate her by treating her to a delicious breakfast, delivered right to her cosy bed! Need help in choosing the perfect recipe? Check out these hints from our super mums at Kitchen Warehouse.
Breakfast with Eggs
Eggs are probably everyone’s breakfast favourite, even mums like Susan, our Inventory Planning Manager. “I like anything with eggs, really. We raise three chickens in our backyard so I know our eggs are always fresh.” But how can you make them special for Mother’s Day?
“I don’t usually eat breakfast so I’d like to be surprised with something good. Tomatoes and eggs are my all-time favourites and I’d love a dish with both of them. Something like shakshouka or huevos rancheros would be perfect because I also love a bit of spice plus you can make it in one pot.” —Justine, Marketing Director
“I love eggs and sausage for breakfast. We usually have them with bread and hot coffee. But when we do have time to prepare, we make it special and hearty by pairing them with rice sauteed in butter and garlic. My little girl will happily eat this meal with me.”—Somer, Web Merchandiser
If your mum also loves having eggs for breakfast, our Smashed Avocado on Toast with Poached Eggs may be the perfect treat. Or for something more substantial, pair this Homemade Sausage recipe with eggs, tomatoes, and beans.
Healthy granola, oats, and muesli
While some mums like their breakfast hearty, other mums would prefer something lighter. An acai or smoothie bowl, for example, is not only nutritious but also colourful. Layers of yoghurt, oats, and fruit in a clear glass will surely put a smile on mum’s face, too. But if your mum is like Haley, Kitchen Warehouse’s Online Buyer, who would appreciate a muesli or toasted granola surprise in bed, then give this Breakfast Granola recipe a go.
Golden toast and pastries
Sometimes, crisp toast with their favourite toppings or just the thought of biting onto flaky pastry is enough to make mums happy. And our Kitchen Warehouse mums couldn’t agree more. Here are their tips on how you can turn even simple breakfast staples into a fabulous morning surprise.
“I’d hate to have crumbs all over my bed, if I’m being honest, but I can’t say no to flaky and buttery croissants!”—Rachael, Events and Experience Manager
“I’m easy. Vegemite toast and a cup of tea and I’m sorted. Vegemite, butter, or jam on toast, they’re all yummy.”—Karen, Finance
Classic pancakes and crepes
Mums may be used to cooking pancakes or crepes for us in the morning. But even them will love to be surprised with these breakfast classics. Good thing we have the tips on How to Make Crepes and this Fluffy Pumpkin Pancake recipe to get you started. You can also make Aussie pikelets with this Scotch Buttermilk Pancakes recipe. Now, for the toppings, try these highly recommended ideas from busy mums Charlotte and Sef.
“For a special day, I’d love something incredibly indulgent like crepes with fresh fruit and nuts, a drizzle of syrup, and a dollop of whipped cream. Then I’d like to go back to sleep!”—Sef, Content Manager
