My mom has always made Mother’s Day special for me. I remember the first time I was able to celebrate Mother’s Day as a mother, she made the day extra special by holding a brunch for me full of delicious foods and sweet treats. I wanted to do something for her this Mother’s Day, but I just didn’t know what. She is the type of person who can just go buy something that she wants, so I really couldn’t buy her anything. She isn’t one who likes to go out to eat or to the movies, so that is marked off my list. After carefully thinking, I thought back to my very first Mother’s Day and I decided to do the same for her.
I went shopping at my local Walmart and was browsing around trying to figure out something to surprise her with. I wanted a light brunch that not only tasted great but would have her wanting seconds. I decided to turn one of my classic dinner dishes into a brunch dish! I went over to the cold section and picked up a pack of Hillshire Farm® Smoked Sausage Beef, a package of Thomas’® The Original Nooks & Crannies English Muffins, Bell Pepper, and a Red Onion. While at the grocery store I called my mom and told her I needed her to come over to my house, I needed her help to complete something! She lives an hour away, so I knew I would have time to make the perfect brunch for her!
When we got home, my children went to work decorating the table. We put flowers all over the dining room table, and they even made streamers and a card for her. While they were busy doing that, I was busy in the kitchen making the perfect brunch for the perfect mom. I first started by making a Jalapeno Cream Cheese Spread.
- 8 Oz Cream Cheese (Softened)
- ¼ Cup Jalapenos
- 1 TBS Garlic
To make it is simple, simply combine all the ingredients and let sit for at least 30 minutes.
Now, I had to prepare my delicious sandwich. For this I simply sliced and diced up the Hillshire Farm sausage, bell pepper, and onions and put into a frying pan. Then I cooked until they were done, so about 10 to 15 minutes. Then I toasted the Thomas’ English Muffins and then spread the Jalapeno Cream Cheese Spread on it and topped with the sausage mix.
As soon as I was putting the finishing touches on the brunch, my mom pulled up. I loved being able to surprise her with a brunch and show her just how much I appreciated her!
