Mothers Day Breakfast Recipes (and a love letter to the mums in my life)

With Mothers Day fast approaching in Australia (next Sunday 8 May, people!), I thought I’d get in early with some breakfast ideas… Not just for those readers who will be cooking for their own mothers or the mothers of their children, but more likely: for those of you who ARE mothers, who might want to pass on some gentle suggestions!

Below are some breakfast recipe ideas (all relatively healthy and low-sugar), including my recipe for an extremely easy Zesty Orange French Toast; which might be a perfect option for someone less confident in the kitchen or who doesn’t really like cooking. I’ve also provided links to some other delicious sweet-ish and savoury breakfast options. I’m on a bit of an avocado-and-eggs thing at the moment, and nearly ended up with a list of only avocado-and-egg recipes. But I’ve managed to restrain myself to just one.

Sweet version of sweet potato waffles

I’ve written before about my love for sweet potato. I first came across its use in sweet dishes in Well Nourished’s Berry Nice Brownies, and I also developed a recipe for Sweet Potato Pancakes with Cinnamon Cream Cheese and Candied Pecans. But these Sweet or Savoury Spiced Sweet Potato Waffles are my new favourite. I’ve been testing them out for weeks, much to the delight of my boys (husband included!), including trying out gluten-free and dairy-free variations, which are included at the end of the recipe. They are versatile and complement sweet and savoury toppings. Eat them for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! The waffles are completely sweetener-free, as I prefer to add sweetness to the toppings.
