Give Mom a break this Mother’s Day by making her a breakfast in bed or treating her to a family braai with all the trimmings. These cheats recipes are easy and fuss free, perfect for the kids to make. Just add braai meat by dad ;)
Using a cookie cutter in the shape of your choice, cut out a piece of bread from
the center of a slice.
Heat some butter in a pan and fry the bread on one side.
Turn the toast around and break an egg in the cut out shape.
Cook to mom’s liking.
Season with Maldon salt and dust the cut-out shape with paprika.
Designer 'Braai brodjies'
Use one large or a few smaller Ciabbata (Baked or wrapped in foil on the braai)
loaves with one of the following fillings:
- Sun-dried tomato, basil pesto & mozzarella
- Mature cheddar & caramelised red onion
- Brie & figs
- Feta, spinach & bacon
- Or make up your own combination!
Rainbow Slaw with a Honey Mustard Dressing
Buy a ready mix rainbow slaw (red cabbage, white cabbage, carrots, lettuce, beetroot)
add a few apple slices and sprinkle with pecan nuts.
Mix together 1 Tbls honey, 1 Tbls wholegrain mustard, 125ml plain Greek yogurt
and season with salt.
Serve salad with the dressing on the side as the perfect accompaniment to a braai.
Buy a box of ready-mix vanilla (or chocolate) cupcake or cake mix with all the ingredients
as directed on the box and a big jar of Nutella chocolate spread.
Make the cupcakes according to the instructions.
Just before baking drop a big dollop of Nutella (a tablespoon or more) in the center on top
of the cupcake mix and bake until cooked through and golden.
Serve with milk or even more indulgent – a Frangellico Don Pedro!
* Make it extra chocolaty by smearing the baked cupcakes with more Nutella.
Happy Mother's Day to all the fabulous mothers!
