Treat Mom to Brunch Skewers for Mother's Day

After many, many hard years of trying for a child, our little angel has finally come into our lives and made us parents! We have had every wave of emotions over these past few months, but with each moment we know we are beyond blessed to have started such an amazing little family. I am excited to say that this year, my very first Mother's Day will fall on my birthday! I can't believe it! I have so much to celebrate on this upcoming day and it couldn't be more amazing that I get to celebrate both at once. It is going to be my best birthday ever and I am so fortunate to say that I already have everything I could want and need ;).

While my little one can't make me sweet macaroni necklaces or breakfast in bed for either celebration just yet, I don't want that to stop you from spoiling your favorite mommies on this holiday with my darling, easy and festive brunch skewers! I am a huge fan of things on a stick like corn dogs or cake pops, so I figured brunch would best be had on a stick as well... especially to make it party friendly. I am going to share a few combinations I came up with for a yummy brunch, but if you really let your creative foodie spirits fly the possibilities are really endless here!


Mother's Day Brunch Skewers


French Toast & Strawberries

French toast is one of my all-time favorite breakfast foods. It goes so great with so many things and really makes it okay to have dessert for breakfast, I mean it is made with egg so it has protein in it, too! In order to create the cutest little skewers and also make your party preparation super-easy, I used the frozen Eggo Cinnamon Toast Waffles and toasted them in my toaster oven. To make the heart strawberries, simply cut strawberries in half and use a heart cookie cutter in the center of each half. I layered them on the skewers in an alternating pattern.



Chicken & Waffles

I originally moved to California from Georgia, so I love my southern staples like chicken and waffles. There is just something special about that sweet and savory combination, especially when brunching. It really does make you feel like you are having breakfast and lunch at the same time. Oh em geeeee! For this cute combination, I made mini chocolate chip waffles in my waffle maker and then used a heart shaped cookie cutter to cut out heart patterns for the skewers. For the chicken, I used some frozen chicken strips baked up to crispy perfection. I layered this skewer with the waffle in the middle and strips surrounding them.



Pancakes & Blueberries

I made some quick and thick pancake batter for these next skewers and added in blueberries. To make them mini, I simply added a very small amount of batter for each little baby pancake so they wouldn't spread out too much. You could add in other fruits or even try other delicious combos like bananas and peanut butter. I added more blueberries to the skewers and created an alternating pattern for the final look. Other fruits would also look great surrounding these sweet little cakes!



Egg & Tomato Toast

Now I know I said the other combinations were special to me in some way, but this one is egg-ceptionally special to me! My grandma used to make me toasted egg, tomato and mayo sandwiches for breakfast all the time. It was such a simple thing, but I always remember it being something so delicious and comforting anytime I was at her house. Since a sandwich on a skewer might be a little messy, I decided to toast the bread and throw on the mayo, add on little cherry tomatoes and a halved hard-boiled egg. All the deliciousness of the combination, way less mess on a stick!



Sausage & Biscuits 

This is another southern staple of mine and reminds me of this little place in my small town that only served breakfast sandwiches. I usually got sausage on my fluffy and buttery biscuit and would also squeeze on some mustard! I got the love for mustard on my sausage patties from my mom and that makes it even more perfect for a Mother's Day brunch skewer, right? For these skewers, I made little mini biscuits by using a cup to make a smaller round from the pre-made biscuits. I also used a cup to cut the sausage patties into smaller circles for the skewers and then layered them up. You will want to save the leftover biscuit dough for the final skewer!


Mini Sprinkled Donut Holes

Another thing my mom taught me growing up was a simple way to make donuts! Simply open up some pre-made biscuits and use a little shot glass to make a hole in the middle and voila, you have prepared donut and donut hole dough ready to fry up! Since there will be leftover dough from making the biscuits, go ahead and use that dough with a small shot glass to create rounds of dough. Fry them in oil until they are a light brown on all sides and drain on a paper towel. To make the icing, mix about a cup of powdered sugar with a teaspoon of vanilla and a few tablespoons of milk. Mix thoroughly until there are no clumps and the icing is slightly thick, but still runny. Dip each donut hole in the icing and top with sprinkles. Set aside to dry and set before adding them to your skewers.



You can easily make these skewers unique and special for each of your guests by having a variety of toppings and sauces on hand like sprinkles, whipped cream, syrup, hot sauce, ranch, peanut butter, jelly...the list goes on! You will know exactly what to do as you prepare, and when all else fails just put out what you have on hand (no one will know). If you have any other wonderful treats or traditions you celebrate on this special day, be sure to leave me a note in the comments so I can try them out next year because I am still overjoyed to be celebrating and making new traditions for this holiday every year.

I hope you all enjoy these fantastic skewers and have the most amazing Mother's Day, whether you are being celebrated or celebrating those you love!
