This Mother’s Day, serve a healthy Strawberry French Toast Roll Up Casserole for breakfast or brunch. Any Mom will love these french toast roll ups filled with strawberries and cream cheese.
I very rarely make french toast. My little one has never been a fan so I just don’t bother. Now a french toast casserole is another matter. While I don’t like standing over a pan dipping and flipping french toast, I love putting a french toast casserole together and being able to serve everyone at once. My little one even loved this one. I cut the roll ups in half for her and let her dip in a little syrup. She devoured the Strawberry French Toast Roll Ups.
On Mother’s Day, my little one loves to bring me breakfast in bed. With a little help from my husband, she could easily make Strawberry French Toast Roll Up Casserole. Of course, she wants her own tray and to eat in bed with me. Yes, I love that part. I remember making breakfast in bed for my parents when I was little. I loved bringing everything up on a tray. It made me feel so grown up. I don’t remember if what I cooked was actually edible but it is the thought that counts, after all.
My parents will come over for Mother’s Day and we usually have High Tea with scones and little tea sandwiches. Mother’s Day seems to be the worst day to go out to a restaurant. The restaurants hike up the prices and are so crowded. Even normally fantastic restaurants seem to have sub-par food because of the high demand. It would be nice to go out and not have any clean up but I’m not sure it is worth the hassle. At least eating at home, ensures fantastic food.
One other plus of eating at home is we can eat in whatever we want; sweats, pajamas, shorts or dress it up a little. Sometimes we will break out the china which gets used about twice a year. We use to make the tea sandwiches ahead of time but now we just make all the parts. Part of the fun is making your own little concoction. Someone might want egg salad with a piece of smoked salmon on it or a cucumber sandwich with some brie. Someone may want a sandwich with a little bit of everything. We all get to eat what we want and share our latest and greatest flavor combinations. Even my little one will get in on the act. She will happily tell everyone what she put on her sandwich and how it is the best ever. Mother’s Day would not be much of a celebration out family. Even though it is supposed to be about Mothers, it is really a celebration of family. That is what being a Mother is all about.
