Mother’s Day Recipes for Every Mom

Mother's Day Recipes

Mother’s Day is this Sunday! Are you having trouble coming up with a recipe that’s just right for your mom? We’ve got you covered!

Moms come in as many flavors as our potatoes do colors, and it can be tough coming up with recipe ideas for a momma with discerning taste. Whether your mom is a total foodie, prefers comfort food, or falls somewhere in between, we have recipe suggestions for you!

We also want your Mother’s Day brunch to be about hanging with mom, not about standing over the stove, so we’ve picked out recipes that you can prep in advance, so you’ll spend minimal time in the kitchen on Sunday.

1. Foodie Momma

Does your mom love cooking shows, subscribe to Gourmet magazine, and like recipes that involve creme fraiche? Impress her palate with something fancy, like this Potato and Boursin Fritata. You can make the potato mixture in advance, so on the day-of, you’ll just spread it into the skillet, pour on the eggs and cheese, and bake. No stove time required!

2. Healthy Momma

If your mom is trying to eat light, you can still treat her right! Toss together a bed of field greens and top them with our Light and Lively Fingerling Potato Salad. A light vinaigrette replaces the heavy mayo that’s in most potato salad recipes, and the potatoes are filling without adding too many calories! This salad keeps beautifully in the fridge; you can prepare it up to two days in advance.

3. Vegetarian Momma

More and more folks are going meatless, and if you’re not used to cooking a vegetarian meal, it might be tough coming up with something tasty for Mother’s Day that your mom can eat. Make an Asian-themed meal centered around some delicious Japanese potato croquettes! You can make the croquettes the day before and just pop them into the oven on Mother’s Day.

4. Meat and Potatoes Momma

Cooking for a mom who likes more hearty fare, but want to add a bit of flair? She will love our Beef and Potato Tamale Casserole. You can assemble the casserole a day ahead, then just cook it up in the microwave when it’s almost brunch time. This is a super quick recipe that takes just 20 minutes in the microwave!

5. Traditional Momma

If your mom likes to keep it simple, surprise her with a good ol’ Chicken and Potato Pot Pie! Get all of the chopping done the day before, and this recipe will come together in less than half an hour on Sunday.
