Mother’s Day Sunrise Surprise
Start Mother’s Day off right with a beautiful breakfast in bed. A pretty tray set with the good dishes and real linens, a fresh flower and some delicious food will put a smile on Mom’s face that will last all day.
Golden Sunrise French Toast gets a special boost with evaporated milk and a splash of vanilla extract. Make sure you use firm bread so the toast doesn’t end up soggy.
If Mom loves eggs, making scrambled eggs with a little evaporated milk gives them such a creamy texture that she’ll want to eat them this way all the time. Add one tablespoon of evaporated milk for each egg used.
Pour her a Mock Mimosa by mixing sparkling lime juice or ginger ale with orange juice. Garnish with a fresh strawberry on the rim of the glass.
