Mother’s Day Favorites

  • by

Anyone who knows me (or reads any of my blog posts) probably knows that the role I most value in life is that of Mom. In celebration of all Mother’s out there, I asked some of my special Mom friends what their favorite Mother’s Day food celebrations include. Keep reading to find out more, plus my own contribution which I love making with my kiddos!

  • Mom of a three-year-old boy wants breakfast – let’s hope Dad and kiddo can make her an avocado topped omelette with a side of tater tots!
  • Mom of a little girl with another sweet baby on the way wants easy to cook and no clean up – brunch picnic with bagels & lox (mimosas again eventually)!
  • Mom to one hungry six-year-old boy just wants her own food. She says her own HUGE fruit salad where the little guy is not stealing it from her would be perfect!
  • Busy mom to an older boy and girl wants to sleep – bring on the brunch so she can sleep in please!
  • Super mom to three active kids all under 10 wants a little decadence with chocolate covered strawberries, yum!

My favorite side to truly any meal is popovers. You can stuff them with scrambled eggs at breakfast to make a tasty egg sandwich, enjoy as a side with a beautiful salad at lunch, or pair with a protein and veggie for a delicious accompaniment at dinner. Check out my recipe below, there are so many variations of the actual popover too – add a sprinkle of pepper, parmesan cheese, or even cinnamon to create your own spin on my classic favorite!

Jess’ Perfect Popovers (makes 12 medium popovers)

  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 ½ C milk of choice (whole, low fat, skim)
  • ½ tsp of salt
  • 1 ½ C all purpose flour
  • 3 T melted butter

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 450 F
  2. Grease muffin tin heavily
  3. Combine eggs, milk, and salt whisking well
  4. Add the flour all at once and whisk to combine well
  5. Stir in the melted butter
  6. Fill muffin tin cups ⅔ way full
  7. Allow batter to rest for 30 minutes to all come to the same temperature
  8. Bake at 450 for 20 minutes
  9. Reduce oven temp tp 350 F and bake an additional 10-15 minutes until tops are golden brown
  10. Serve hot and enjoy plain, with honey, jam, olive oil/garlic dipping sauce, etc – the options are endless!

*Be sure not to open the oven door while baking – this ensures that the popovers “pop”!
