Essence of Mom
Plain buttered toast tastes like haute cuisine when it’s delivered bedside. But when Chef Emeril Lagasse’s doing the cooking, Mother’s Day brunch becomes delectable in its own right. From beignets to bread pudding, these dishes will give Mom the dual satisfaction of eating your food and knowing she taught you some tricks.
“Put an egg on it” is a fix for any number of kitchen conundrums. And this recipe proves a ham-and-cheese croissant only improves with a sunny-side-up topper. Who’d have thought?

Cafe Au Lait Beignets
Coffee and doughnuts were meant for each other. These beignets, topped with powdered sugar and served with cafe au lait creme anglaise, combine the two in each pillowy, perfect mouthful.

Herbed Quiche with Blue Cheese
We love quiche for its versatility and subtle sophistication. This version, complete with Emeril’s own delicious crust recipe, is a brunch dish Mom is sure to adore.

Pancake recipes are like well-fitting jeans -- you can never have enough. These classic buttermilk ones make a mouthwatering canvas for mom’s favorite mix-ins (sprinkle berries or chocolate chips straight onto the pancake at the start of cooking on the griddle).
