Mother's Day recipes: Breakfast in bed

May 5, 2009 |  1:00 pm


What's that? You didn't make brunch reservations for Mother's Day? Better get dialing. Or we have another tried-and-true option: breakfast in bed. 

Here's a photo gallery look at some Mother's Day menu suggestions from the L.A. Times Test Kitchen. Included are recipes inspired by the menus of some of L.A.'s most popular restaurants. (You know, the ones you forgot to call for reservations.)

We've got French toast from Square One Dining, and BLD's blueberry ricotta pancakes and cornmeal Belgian waffles

For something a bit more savory, there's Le Pain Quotidien's quiche Lorraine and zucchini-basil frittata, a cheese omelet and tomatillo salsa, or slow scrambled eggs draped with prosciutto.

And then, for something sweet, we've got chocolate-orange scones, Meyer lemon muffins and Square One's brown-butter pecan coffeecake.

Happy Mother's Day. And don't forget to clean up the kitchen when you're done.
