Go big AND go home with these super-easy, super-delicious brunch recipes? Sure, she loves that one local spot, but not as much as she’ll love the effort behind a homemade spread.
So, to help you treat Mom to something truly special (read: wildly delicious), we’ve rounded up 10 easy-to-make Mother’s Day brunch recipes to try.

Standard brunch fare was established for a reason (it’s freakin’ delicious!) and huevos rancheros certainly fits the bill.

The best part: You can make it in less than 30 minutes, and add any stray veggies in your refrigerator to boost nutritional value even more.
Is mom vegan? These waffles are, too (though we highly recommend them for nonvegans as well). Protein-packed peanut butter never disappoints in the flavor department and will also keep your guest of honor satisfied ’til dinner.
