Delicious Mother’s Day Breakfast!

You discreetly open one eye and scan the room. Maybe if you don’t move they will think you are still sleeping. Crash! The door flies open, the scrambled eggs go airborne and you know they have found you out! There they stand in the doorway – your family, grinning from ear to ear. It’s another Mother’s Day and once again they are treating you like a goddess- bringing you a tray full of burnt offerings (known in our culture as breakfast in bed).

There’s blackened toast, large brown lumps you think may be scrambled eggs, coffee “paste”, and oh, are these strips of bacon, beef jerky or dog treats? Then of course you look at their smiling faces full of love and you are reminded how blessed you are. Gratefully, you pick up your fork and start eating. Has anything ever tasted more like manna from heaven?

If you’d rather be able to identify your Mother’s Day breakfast this year, then discreetly slip these Mother’s Day breakfast recipes to your husband or children so that he can make sure that this heartwarming moment is also a tasty memory for you!

Easy Mother’s Day Breakfast Recipes:


2 eggs
2 cups flour, all-purpose or wheat
1 1/2 cups milk
2 Tbsp. sugar
1/4 cup vegetable oil
5 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt

In a bowl, mix ingredients just enough to moisten dry ingredients. Mixture will be thick and lumpy. Heat a griddle or frying pan over medium heat and lightly grease. Cook on a hot greased griddle. Flip when bubbles break on the surface and the edges begin to dry. Makes 15-18 medium pancakes.


Scrambled Eggs

8 eggs
4 Tbsp. milk or water (optional)
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
4 tsp. margarine (or bacon grease)

Stir all the ingredients except margarine in a bowl until well blended. Heat a skillet on medium heat. Add margarine to the skillet. Pour egg mixture into skillet. Stir constantly about 4 minutes until eggs are fluffy and set. Serves 4.


Country Fried Potatoes

6 Tbsp. bacon grease or margarine
6 potatoes, peeled and sliced
salt and pepper

Melt bacon grease or margarine in a frying pan. Add the potatoes in the pan and cook over medium heat. Flip potatoes and cook until golden brown. Remove from pan. Salt and pepper to taste. Serves 4-6.


Creamy Orange Shake
(like Orange Julius)

1/3 cup frozen orange juice concentrate
1/2 cup milk
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup water (optional)
1/2 tsp. vanilla
5-6 ice cubes
2 scoops vanilla ice cream

Combine ingredients in a blender until smooth. Serves 4.

    OJ smoothie.. instead of all the sugar, I substituted 1 container of Yoplait Orange Creamy yogurt (.58 cents)[you could use store brand too] and 2 packets of Splenda or whatever sugar substitute. Cuts down on some sugar content. I also usesd these substitutions on a cool whip fruit dip, people could not tell the difference
    thanks for all the good recipes you give us!

    Not sure if I like your slick new look, it’s not quite as homey as the old one. That is not to say it’s not beautiful.

    Thanks for all your hard work. I enjoy every one of your newsletters, save them all in a folder in my emails, and re-read them when I have extra time. Keep it up!!

    I thought you might like this wonderful and informative site, ana-white.com. Ana has all kinds of free wood working plans that you might use to make your bed frame.

    Thanks for all the great recipes and money saving advice.

    Try eating with pleasure cold toast with the butter sitting on it in lumps and hot lemon tea on a water bed while 3 males sit and watch your enjoyment. Oh yes almost forgot the cat as well.
    I would take a bite of the toast and a sip of tea avoiding the lumps of butter thank them nicely and ask what was on TV. They would leave I would discretely flush the toast down the toilet and take my tea to the kitchen where I proceeded to make breakfast for everyone.
    This year with no children home I will await the calls and then my husband will turn on the bbq and do back ribs with potatoes baking in the oven. Open a bag of salad mix and voila supper is served and much enjoyed with a couple glasses of wine.
    No work from me hopefully neither of us will be too sore to cook after the Sat. of cutting wood for our summer supply of front yard fires.
    But whatever you are served smile and remember how much your own mother loved the meals you served her in bed on her special day.
    What goes around comes around and love makes everything wonderful.

    Hi Jill, Tawra and all Moms, Over the last challenging year, I came up with this list of who and what I am. I am sure that all of you can add and/or top it. So here it goes: I am a wife, mother and grandmother, housekeeper and house-cleaner, gardener, chef, chauffeur, photographer, physicians asst., correspondent, seamstress, laundress, interior decorator, naturalist, animal lover, reader, traveler, wood-stacker, recycler, knitter/crocheter, chicken and egg lady, herbalist, nurse, composter, creative thinker, music lover, accountant, weather forecaster and watcher, movie critic and lover, homesteader, keeper of the keys, shopper for food and bargains, organizer, collector, spellcheck (for my husband), librarian, vet, baker, barber, doorman (mostly for our cats) and general groundskeeper.

    I am not bragging because we all do these things without thinking about it…much…until I decided to list them. The sky is the limit for Mothers.

      I recently heard a commercial that I thought was cute and along these same lines. To paraphrase it – Mom’s are so amazing; they are the only ones in the house who know how to turn on the dishwasher. :)

      Hi Judy from Maine

      Please take the day off from all your jobs we women do so much and ask for so little put your feet up and relax. This chauffeur and caretaker of everyone’s needs will be taking the day off until someone can’t find something. Happy Mothers Day

      • getforfree says

        It is easier to not take a day off than later catching up for a few days. My husband doesn’t want me to do any cleaning/gardening/laundry on Sundays. But then my Monday and Tuesday will be very stressful, because everything is a mess and I don’t even know where to start. So it’s easier to not take a day off, because it’s even more work later.

  6. Maggie says

    And think if we got paid for each of our specialities. No one could afford us. Love covers the cost.

  7. Whispering2u says

    You are so right, Mothers Day was for burnt offerings. It was the. Mess in the kitchen I always dreaded the most. Now my kids are all grown up. My daughter took me out for a very posh Brunch in a very trendy place this past Mothers Day. I thought Oh my Goodness. Reservations had been made two weeks in advance, while I scanned the Menu with a gold tassel sipping my champaign Mimosa,I knew deep in my heart that she would be calling Me the next week or so for a bill she. Could not pay.

    Hi Jill,

    The fried potatoes are so good! I also sprinkled some bisquick on my potatoes as I fry them. It makes them extra crispy. Happy Mother’s day and God bless you and your family.

  9. Magdalen says

    Daughter, then about eight, with help from younger sibs, once bought two new frying pans to cook bacon and egg for me, as a surprise on Mothering Sunday, (it’s earlier here). They brought it upstairs for both of us. I’ll never forget it.

    Re: fried potatoes. I use a little oil and warm some garlic in it before adding the preboiled diced potatoes. If they’re left over mash, that works well too, and a lot of ground black pepper.

  10. Grizzly Bear Mom says

    Why are you giving US the recipes? We’re the ones who are supposed to be treated!

    Is that your little guy with the tray?

    • says

      We are giving you the recipes to give to your family so they maybe can not make such a mess in your kitchen for you. Besides, most of our families really try to make things nice for us but don’t always have a clue on how to do these things so I don’t think it hurts to be a little kind and give them a break or a little help.

    • says

      Taylor there are a few things and it of course depends on the ten year old some are a little more responsibe about such things or have a love for doing it and because of that it is easier to teach them. The thing is to start out teaching them to cook their favorite foods. For example Tawra’s 10 year old loves Raman (sp) noodles for lunch so he learned to cook those first. He also loves cinnamon toast broiled in the oven so he can do that now. If they like mac and cheese or Jello teach them to do that. Another good one is scrambled eggs or oatmeal if they like that. You could move on to grilled cheese sandwiches and brownies.
