Our selection of brunch menus made up of 23 recipes sure to shake things up this Mother's Day.

It's hard to argue with Mother's Day brunch. It's tradition, and hey, it's brunch. But if you're interested in mixing up things a bit this year, we've got just the ticket. Well, four tickets—all disguised as themed brunch menus. First, we've got dishes for a health-conscious mom, followed by a menu for the mom who likes a taste of the South every now and then. Next, a menu for the madre who likes a taste of the even deeper south—as in south of the border—and finally, a few tasty menu items for the Earth mama that prefers to be out on the trails with her brood. And remember, these brunch menus are FOR mom, not BY mom, so keep her out of the kitchen, no matter how much she argues.  

LIGHT AND HEALTHY BRUNCH A bright, seasonal, nutritious menu. But you're thinking, "wait...there are muffins involved?" Yes there are, but we assure you, these are much lower in fat and calories than your run-of-the-mill brunch sweet.

SOUTHERN-STYLE BRUNCH In true Southern fashion, this menu subscribes to a decidedly “more is more” philosophy.
