TLP’s guide to
Mother’s Day brunch

With Mother’s Day just around the corner, we’ve collected some of our favorite brunch recipes to brighten up your Sunday celebration.


Todd Richards Soul Brunch

Take a page out of Atlanta chef Todd Richards’ book (his 2018 release, Soul, to be specific) with a menu chock full of fresh produce and reimagined brunch classics. His fried chicken over sweet potato waffles hits the sweet-salty-crunchy trifecta.

Baked Eggs in Tomato Sauce

If Mom’s love language is comfort food, opt for the baked eggs in tomato sauce.

Sausage biscuits with ginger peach relish

Sausage biscuits topped with ginger peach relish are perfect for feeding a crew.

For an easy-but-impressive tea party vibe, break out the nice linens and bake up a skillet of scottish scones with honey butter and a quick three-ingredient jam.


Tastes skew more lunch? The South’s jazzed-up answer to chicken salad, country captain is the way to go. Pile it on a sandwich, scoop onto melon slices, serve with toast points or lettuce cups—the options are endless.

Smoked salmon with wild pepper

Fire up the grill to smoke your own salmon (it’s easier than you think) for an impressive, low-carb luncheon.

Brennan's Eggs Hussarde

Veer decadent with the ultimate brunch classic straight from New Orleans: Brennan’s Eggs Hussarde. Nothing spells love like a duo of sauces and a perfectly poached egg.
