Mom deserves to be spoiled, of course, and Mother’s Day is the perfect opportunity to do it. Plan a lavish, multi-course brunch with all her favorites. Set a festive table with linen, silver and a bouquet of fresh-cut flowers to set the scene. The most important part of all, though, is that she doesn’t lift a finger before or after. Here are five of our very best Little Potatoes brunch recipes to draw from for your special menu.
These mini-quiches will wow mom and everyone else, too. These look lovely topped with a juicy slice of sweet Roma tomato, and you can make them in advance, then serve warm or at room temp. The crunchy potato pancake crust contrasts with the creamy center, a savory mix of whipped eggs, Parmesan, herbs, capers, olive tapenade and exotic Something Blue Little Potatoes. Arrange on a tea sandwich caddy and garnish with some feathery dill sprigs. Believe it or not, this winner takes only 10 minutes to make.
Mom’s a vegan? Try this one. These latkes will pair nicely with a fruit salad to round off the brunch menu. To make these crisp outside, tender inside (egg-free) pancakes, grate Baby Boomer Creamers, then mix with flour, green onion and herbs and pan fry til golden brown. Top with grated vegan cheese—or for non-vegans, a spoonful of plain Greek yogurt and green onion slices—and place on a bed of garden greens. Garnish with bright, spring-colored edible flowers.
This salad is an ideal side for a spiral-cut ham and egg dish, such as quiche, soufflé or a casserole scramble. Light and perfect for the season, for this recipe we’ve substituted yogurt for mayo to remove the heaviness and add tang. Boil Dynamic Duo Creamers, then mix apple cider vinegar, mustard, yogurt, sugar, onion powder, pepper and chopped fresh dill with the warm potatoes. Make ahead and refrigerate til serving to save time.
Smoked salmon-wrapped nibbles lend sophistication to any party table. Slather boiled purple-and-yellow Chilean Splash Little Potatoes in a sour cream, shallot, dill, chives and horseradish mix, then wrap them in smoked salmon and secure the pretty package with a party skewer. The nutty potatoes and creamy herb dip mingle beautifully with the rich salmon and zip of dill and oniony chives. Serve alongside cold cuts, artisan breads and cheeses, and champagne grapes. Elegant!
is the best kind of dish — a meal in one. Baked tri-color Terrific Trio Little Potatoes or red Blushing Belle Creamers add substance and texture to this entrée combining sour cream, onion, cheddar, green peppers, green onion, and crumbled bacon. The eggs provide a whipped, fluffy backdrop to a combo of rich, smoky, and tangy flavors with the right amount of satisfying crunch. Prep time is about 10 minutes. Place casserole squares on dainty china and top with a dollop of sour cream sprinkled with bacon bits and green onion. Put out some croissants or baguette, plus coffee and tea, on the side. Brunch is served!
