Planning a menu for mother's day can be difficult but if you have¬†overnight to prepare something for your mother on her special day, these are the recipes you should¬†list down so you can get all your ingredients ready the night before. Then, it's just completing the final touches and serving to mom the next day. These show-stoppers take time to prepare but she'll love that time and effort was exerted¬†so she can have a great meal.¬†
Tapa Eggs Benedict
The great thing with eggs is that it's highly versatile.¬†Another Pinoy version of the beloved¬†brunch meal¬†takes a¬†while to prep yet¬†will still result in a delicious¬†version¬†that you can boast was all made from scratch. Do these the night before so minimal cooking is done the morning after: Cook the poached eggs until the whites are firm then store in cold water in the refrigerator. Cook the marinated¬†beef before storing. Then, just gently reheat¬†the eggs and¬†tapa, toast the pandesal, and make the hollandaise fresh.¬†If¬†all that effort is¬†not showing¬†your mom some love, we don't know what is.¬†
Let¬†your mom revisit the flavors of her childhood with this egg pie. You'll need to chill it completely overnight¬†so each bite is one that¬†lets her revisit the creamy experience she originally had when she had her first bite of this Pinoy custard pie.
The trick¬†to a fast and easy prep is to bread and cook¬†the chicken cutlets the night before and then, an hour before it's ready to serve, put it all together in a baking dish and¬†roast in a preheated oven until the cheese is melted and the breaded chicken fillets are heated through.¬†Great served with simply buttered pasta, steamed rice, or on its own for a truly decadent meal that Mom can eat any way she likes on the day that's meant to celebrate her.¬†¬†
