Breakfast in Bed

Days need to start off well, don’t they? If you have a terrible morning with a horrible breakfast, the rest of the day is just kind of…spoiled. While this is true for everyone everyday, perhaps getting off to a great start on Mother’s Day is more important than all the rest. Moms need a break. Maybe some “me time” for themselves. Some peace and quiet even. Isn’t that what Mother’s Day is all about? Showing mom that we lover her and appreciate all that she does day in and day out for our families. That’s more important than any flowers or chocolates could be. Showing our mothers all the feels on this special day is essential. 

Start things off right and treat the Moms in your life to Breakfast in Bed on Mother’s Day. Start cookin’ something new and tasty…Bays® English Muffins delicious Mother’s Day recipes!!! What could be better than breakfast in bed? Correct…nothing.

Bays English Muffins

Bays English Muffins are really tasty and have a great texture. Bonus one, they are split and open easily with no mes or fuss. Bonus 2, they are the perfect vehicle for sandwiches and snacks of any kind. Really anything could work. Be creative! Sweet, savory, pizza, dessert. Who knows? Let your creativity run free. Bays English Muffins are also the perfect size! This Mother’s Day, I’m going for a simple egg sandwich that’s super fresh, very bright, nicely creamy, and packed with protein. It’s my Egg and Avocado sandwich with some super sweet grapes.

Egg and Avocado Breakfast Wake-Up


  • 1 Bays English Muffin
  • 2 Eggs
  • 1/2 Avocado
  • Lettuce of your choice
  • Drizzle of Olive Oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Black Pepper to taste
  • Oregano to taste
  • Red Pepper and/or Hot Sauce to taste


  1. Toast the Bays English Muffins to your liking
  2. Prepare the eggs to your liking. I prefer fried eggs well done to egg sandwiches.
  3. Wash and remove 2-3 leaves of lettuce. I used iceberg in this, but I generally like all kinds including romaine and arugula.
  4. Scoop out the avocado and place it on the muffin. You can mash it like a butter or simply place it on the muffin.
  5. Drizzle olive oil onto the other side of the muffin
  6. Add salt, black pepper, red pepper (or hot sauce), and oregano to taste

The creaminess of the egg and avocado really pair well with the brightness of the lettuce, spices, and oil. It’s a great pairing and has a different taste than the typical egg sandwich with egg and meat. Don’t get me wrong, I love my bacon, egg, and cheese sammies! But this is light and fresh and maybe a tad better for you. It’s great way to start that day. And the Bays English Muffin really pairs well with it all.

That looks delicious! I would certainly love that for Mother’s Day. Less cooking for me! YAY!

I love this. The greatest gift you can ever give to a mom is food that she didn’t have to cook. That looks so good!

What mom can say no to breakfast in bed? Your egg sandwich idea with Bays English Muffins just might be the perfect suggestion for my breakfast in bed!

Jeanine April 26, 2018 - 11:06 AM

Yes! Breakfast in bed would be wonderful. I haven’t had it in many years. Last time I did my oldest daughter made it and surprised me. So lovely.

Estelle April 26, 2018 - 5:05 PM

I love egg and avocado, and the combo on a Bays English Muffin, served to me on bed sounds fantastic. I’m going to suggest the idea to my daughter. She’s 9 and has started to cook.

Breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day is awesome. Even better if the fam. climbs in bed to eat with ya. 🙂

My favorite part of Mother’s Day is getting breakfast in bed. The girls always bring me up an English muffin with goodies piled on plus a side of fruit and juice. I may have to hint around to make your recipe this year. It sounds super delish!

Brianne April 26, 2018 - 9:39 PM

Breakfast in bed sounds dreamy! And that sandwich looks delicious, I would eat that everyday!

Carol Cassara April 26, 2018 - 10:49 PM

There’s so much that you can do with these English muffins that moms will love! I just like the idea of preparing such a sweet spread of breakfast for her! Makes me miss celebrating mother’s day with my mom!

This is such a great idea! I’d love to start my special day with those muffins! Looks delicious!

Moms deserve a good meal! Most moms are used to doing all the cooking but surprising her with these healthy breakfast ideas (not the typical burnt sausage, runny eggs an dry pancakes) that will make her feel appreciated!

Claudia Krusch April 27, 2018 - 9:46 AM

Breakfast in bed on Mother’s Day is awesome. Even better if everybody helps! I am looking forward to it! Hubby and son always make something special!
