Mother’s Day is celebrated on every second Sunday in May in Australia. It is a special day for families to get together to show their love and appreciation for their mums. There are many ways to show this, a crowd pleaser is the luxurious breakfast in bed option — a treat we all know is a sure-fire winner.

The Food Book has lots of ideas for breakfast, from the Simple Fruit Salad (p. 126)  — using fruits that are  in season — to hearty and nutritious Baked Beans (p.141) and scrumptious, No-fail Pancakes (p. 130 with ideas for variations on p.131).

Eggs are a healthy and savoury option, boil them, fry them, scramble them and poach them (p. 134 -136). Or for those with plenty of time, OR (hint) helpers, try The Big Breakfast (p. 142-143) which includes Poached Eggs plus the following recipes: Hash Browns, Grilled Sausages, Grilled Bacon, Garlic Mushrooms, Grilled Tomatoes and Wilted Spinach that will keep your Mum going until well into the afternoon!
