By Holly Clegg –

I hate going to a brunch on Mother’s Day as the restaurants are always crowded and the menu is usually set.  I understand your days are extremely busy, so when a special occasion rolls around, you don’t have all day to cook. A Mother’s Day brunch at your own home can be devised from a few convenient recipes that you can make ahead of time to surprise your family the next morning.  I love overnight one dish breakfast casseroles that you pop in the oven the next morning.

This recipe is so easy to prepare you can make the night before and refrigerate or whip up in the morning.  Using southwestern seasonings and flour tortillas, you have a southwestern breakfast.  For a heartier version, add some crumbled turkey breakfast sausage.  Pick up some fruit and muffins and your meal is set!
