Healthy Mother's Day brunch

Another Mother's Day question: my dad has tasked me with making a "gourmet" brunch/breakfast for my mom (that's what happens when you're the other cook in the family). My mom likes to eat healthy. I was thinking of a frittata, but we did that for Easter so I'd like to come up with something different? Any ideas?

Eggs benedict oscar style would be nice or this https://food52.com/blog... I'm gonna try for sure with romesco, grilled spring onions, and maybe a green salad.

choose something your mom likes - a dish or ingredient, then build on that. satisfy her standards by making the menu with good quality and moderate amount of fat, sweetener, salt, multi-grain or complex carbohydrates etc..satisfy the "gourmet" standards of your Dad (what are they?) with high quality ingredients and beautiful attention to presentation.

How about shakshuka? It's eggs, still, but very different than a frittata -- and it's definitely healthy. You could serve a salad on the side and some nice crusty bread or pita.

This salad is on the lunch-ier side, has eggs, smoked salmon and vegetables and a delicious dressing with creme fraiche, lime and honey that is so good. https://food52.com/recipes...

How about Whole smoked salmon with accouterments and April Bloomfield's Lemon Caper Dressing with salad?

Similar to shakshuka, I love making baked eggs in ratatouille as a brunch dish. It's healthy but filling (and you can prep/cook the ratatouille ahead of time!)

You may also want to take a look at the current contest for "Your Best Recipe for Lettuce-Free Salad" as there are a bunch of healthy, salad like dishes collected there.

< I love making baked eggs in ratatouille as a brunch dish.> That is a really cool idea, Stephanie! I thought I was the "Ratatouille Queen," but I hadn't thought of that one. :)

These Breakfast Muffins are sweetened with banana so they contain no added sugar or oil: http://www.healthline.com...

They're even better when served with Broiled Grapefruit topped with yogurt: http://www.healthline.com...
