Mother's Day Brunch Ideas (18)
Next Sunday is Mother’s Day, and I hope a lot of you lovely moms will get to spend the day getting pampered by your kids and husband.  I hope you guys will get served a delicious breakfast, have a relaxing lunch, and not even have to lift a finger in the kitchen for dinner… but just in case that doesn’t happen, and you are actually going to be serving a yummy meal to your own mom, I wanted to give you a savory recipe to try out, and some simple yet delicious ideas to put on a great brunch.

These individual size frittatas are packed with a lot of flavor, and yummy ingredients…

Individual Frittata Recipe (makes up to 6 servings)
  • 1/2 of a white onion, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, diced
  • 1 zucchini, diced
  • 1/2 pound of ground breakfast sausage or 8 sausage links chopped up
  • 5 slices of bacon, cooked and then crumbled into pieces
  • 2-3 red potatoes, diced
  • 7-8 eggs, cracked and whisked into a small bowl with 2-3 table spoons of heavy cream/milk
  • salt and pepper

You are going to start out cooking some ground sausage, or cut up sausage links.  After a few minutes, add your chopped onion, peppers, and zucchini to the pan. You can add some salt and pepper too.  Cook until the sausage is fully browned, and the onions and peppers are becoming tender.

When they are done, pour them into a separate bowl and use the same pan to fry your red potatoes.

Once the potatoes are done cooking, add them to your sausage and veggie mixture. Crumble up the cooked bacon, and mix it into the rest of the sausage, potatoes, and veggies.

Fill your individual size ramekins up with the meat and veggies, and then add your whisked egg mixture over the tops of each bowl.

Frittatas are so easy to make, but the flavors and combinations you can put together are almost endless. I used some of the ingredients we had on hand, like the peppers, onion, and zucchini, but I picked up the bacon and sausage from Smart & Final when I went shopping the day before. And Smart & Final was a great place to shop for our Mother’s Day Brunch since they had great sales going on, and a wide selection of food and drinks…

It was a delicious brunch if I do say so myself.

This brunch might look hard to pull off, but it was so simple. Especially when I chose items that were already put together for me. The creams puffs looked decadent with the melted chocolate poured on top of them, and all I had to do was buy the cream puffs in the Smart & Final freezer section, and then melt the chocolate at home.  We used the Aunt Jemima pancake mix to save time, and kept the pancakes small so we could cook more of them at one time. Fresh cut strawberries and homemade Meyer Lemon Curd on top, made the pancakes taste so good.  And the croissant wrapped sausage links were easy to make, and kid friendly.  All of these foods put together made a beautiful display…

Smart & Final is a great place to shop for every day groceries, and special occasions such as your own Mother’s Day Brunch. And starting May 9th – 15th the following items will be on sale, so don’t forget to stop by when you’re out shopping this week.
Kellogg's Eggo Waffles (will be on sale for $1.79), Dole 100% Juice, Bar S Sliced Bacon, Farmer John Breakfast Sausage Links, Aunt Jemima Buttermilk Pancake Mix, Don Francisco's Ground Coffee, Korbel Sparkling or Martini & Rossi Asti Spumante Wine
