Easy Lunch Ideas for Mother's Day

It used to be a custom for the Drummond children to try to surprise Mom with breakfast in bed, and it's always adorable when they do. But, on Mother's Day, wouldn't sleep in sound even more beautiful?

Let's face it, indeed, in our opinion. For this reason, we've compiled these Mother's Day lunch suggestions so Mom can rest and partake in a delectable meal on her special day.

Some of our favorite Mother's Day lunch recipes here include spring salads, sides, and traditional comfort foods.

Does your mother prefer salads, or does she indulge in a hearty, spicy burrito?

Will she select a slice of greasy pizza and a cold lager instead of exquisite tiny sandwiches and iced tea? Don't worry; there are so many excellent (and simple) lunch ideas that Mom will adore, whether you're serving a large group of guests or just packing sandwiches for a picnic in the park.

If your mother is anything like Ree Drummond, she'll enjoy a delicious pasta recipe like the spinach lasagna, the chicken saltimbocca, or shrimp pesto pasta. Are you searching for something a little more mellow?

Try a Greek salad with chicken, turkey burgers, or the seasonally appropriate cream of asparagus soup.

Since spending time with Mom is the best Mother's Day present you can give, many of these Mother's Day meals are classy enough for a sit-down meal while yet being quick and straightforward.

Spinach Salad with Mandarin Orange Dressing, Chicken, and Lemon Honey Ginger Sauce

Why not go above and beyond with this fantastic crispy, sweet, zesty masterpiece if your mum loves salads? This Asian-inspired dish bursts with chicken strips, juicy mandarin pieces, almonds, and a tonne of vegetables.

Carrot Salad

This carrot salad is delicious and made ahead of time and is crunchy, sweet, and ideal for barbecues in the backyard. Serve it with your favorite grilled chicken, steak, or burger recipes.

Mexican Buddha Bowl

Buddha bowls have been quite popular on social media during the past year. They are also pretty healthy, beautiful, and swift. They typically include a grain, beans, vegetables, and a dressing to impress.

A lamb burger

This Mother's Day, try something different, like lamb burgers with a creamy feta sauce on top. Cumin, smoky paprika, and oregano give the succulent patties tonnes of flavor.

Simple Tuna Melts

Why not indulge your mother in some fond memories?

She will probably smile when the tables turn because we all grew up on these. These are undoubtedly fancier because they include thick tomato slices and unsliced cheese.

Simple Tomato Pie

Are you looking for a main dish that will wow Mom and all of your guests? The solution is in this tomato pie! In addition to being visually appealing, it is also loaded with cheese, herbs, and juicy tomatoes.

Soup with butternut squash

One of my favorites is this. It's best served warm, smooth, and with heaps of freshly baked bread. You'll also cook this with potatoes and carrots for more flavor and color. Try roasting the carrots and squash in advance if you want to impress.

Pasta with Shrimp Pesto

You don't have to stay in the kitchen all day to show Mom how much you care. Instead, you'll save time and make her smile with this 30-minute supper.

Best Recipe for Egg Salad

There is a proper way to create egg salad, even though there isn't a wrong way. You must take the yolks out of the eggs and combine them with mayonnaise to make the creamiest, most delectable egg salad you've ever had. It will be a considerable change.

Pizza with spinach

You can be sure that Mom will like this creamy white sauce lasagna because it is filled with fresh spinach.

Turkey, Apple, and Cheddar Panini

Does your mother frequently recommend visiting Panera Bread? If so, she'll adore these delectable paninis that are crunchy.

You can use any apples on hand, but it's best to slice them relatively thinly. Regarding the cheese, any cheddar would suffice since I prefer something robust.

Chicken with artichokes

Chicken with artichokes is usually a hit with guests or moms! Additionally, this one goes a step further by including buttery cracker topping and delicate artichoke hearts.

Pasta with Shrimp and Garlic

Are you looking for a last-minute purchase that looks expensive?

How about this 20-minute, effortless pasta meal with garlic shrimp? Because you're waiting for the pasta to cook, this takes a little while. However, your shrimp will be perfectly pink and delicious in just a few minutes in a hot pan once it's ready.

Sizzling Ziti

When you were a child, your mother most likely rewarded you with cushy ziti. Now it's time to pay it forward by slathering your shrimp in Ree's renowned baked ziti in a hot skillet to make them perfectly pink and delectable.


Is this a fancy term for a grilled cheese sandwich? Oh no! Much more than that is involved! If you enjoy grilled cheese sandwiches, you must try this recipe. To add even more decadence, you'll make a creamy bechamel with delicious Gruyère cheese and smoky, salty ham.

Three-Pea and Arugula Salad

This fresh green salad will go perfectly with your dinner. If the three different varieties of pees aren't enough to delight your mother, it's also stuffed with flavorful radishes, smooth goat cheese, and fresh herbs.

Chicken tortilla soup from Chick-fil-A

Chick-fil-A serves soup, right? Of course! And it's very spectacular, precisely like their sandwiches. Since this is a chicken chili, you can add anything, from corn and beans to many chilies, if you like spicy things.

Grilled salmon served with a chipotle Caesar salad.

There are two things in this dish. Pretty fish with grill marks in an adobo sauce served with a traditional creamy caesar salad and fresh croutons. It is substantial enough for dinner but light enough for brunch.

Recipe for the best-grilled cheese sandwich

Which do you prefer, whole wheat or white bread? Sourdough or brioche?

Like the cheese, your bread may make all the difference in a grilled cheese sandwich. I love sourdough for a little tang, but there's something unique about a slice of rich, buttery brioche! Even while pre-sliced cheeses are convenient, cutting your cheese yourself will yield the best results.

Stroganoff beef

One of my all-time favorite foods is beef stroganoff, a comfort food staple. So what is the beautiful dark sauce's secret? Brandy, about half a cup.

Salad Caprese

This salad is incredibly filling and light. You can buy balsamic vinegar almost anywhere; if you find regular vinegar too acidic, consider this sweetened variety. Both small cheese and freshly broken mozzarella will look fantastic on this.

Chicken Empanadas

Empanadas taste much better when the dough is made from scratch; mums adore this homemade touch. The olives add a burst of acidity to balance off the richness of the ground beef, the warmth of the ground cumin, and the sweetness of the onion and peppers in this recipe.

The Chicken and Dumplings at Cracker Barrel

This one is for the southern mamas and anyone seeking a comforting, locally sourced, hard-to-resist dish.

Nothing is more reassuring than chicken and dumplings. You must attempt this Cracker Barrel recipe if you're cooking them. They are experts in southern cooking so you will be satisfied.
