"Whether Mom prefers a leisurely breakfast in bed or a family brunch around the table, you'll delight her with these homemade sweet and savory breakfast dishes," noted Stewart.
Sesame Toasts with Poached Eggs and Avocado:
• 1 avocado
• 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
• Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
• 3 slices sesame bread, lightly toasted
• 1 cup lightly packed watercress sprigs
• Extra-virgin olive oil, for drizzling
• 1 tablespoon white vinegar
• 3 large eggs
1. Halve avocado, remove pit, and scoop flesh into a medium bowl. Add lemon juice, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Mash and stir with a fork until combined and mostly smooth, with some small chunks remaining. Divide avocado mixture among toast slices, spreading evenly. Top avocado with watercress, and drizzle with oil.
2. Bring 1 1/2 inches of water to a simmer in a large, deep skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in vinegar. Crack 1 egg into a small bowl. Holding bowl just above surface of water, gently pour egg into skillet. Repeat with remaining 2 eggs. Poach eggs, undisturbed, just until whites are firm and yolks are still runny, about 4 minutes (for firmer yolks, poach 1 to 2 minutes more).
3. Carefully remove eggs from water with a slotted spoon, allowing excess water to drain off. Place 1 egg on each watercress-topped toast slice. Season with salt and pepper. Serve immediately.
Chocolate-Hazelnut and Banana Crepe:
• 1 Simple Crepes
• 2 tablespoons chocolate-hazelnut spread, such as Nutella
• 1/2 banana, thinly sliced
1. After flipping a crepe in the skillet, top with chocolate-hazelnut spread and banana. Cook until spread melts, about 1 minute. Fold into quarters.
