Ever since my Mother died in 1998, Mother’s Day has been a bittersweet holiday for me. Since I had The World’s Greatest Mother, the day to remember moms just made me miss her all the more, and I wasn’t a mother myself, so I don’t have that to celebrate.
So I’ve decided that my best contribution to the Mother’s Day remembrances can be to encourage everyone I know to cherish and nurture your mothers while you still have them. With that thought in mind, I’m sharing Twenty Favorite Low-Carb Breakfast Recipes for anyone who might be cooking for Mother’s Day, or any time when you want a special breakfast to celebrate.
And there are a lot of tasty low-carb breakfast recipes on this site, so narrowing it down to only twenty picks is no easy task! Happy Mother’s Day to all the mothers who read my blog! Let’s celebrate our mothers all year, shall we?

omg Kalyn, these look soooo good! Wish I had stumbled on these earlier. I’m going to surprise my nona next week with the avocado frittata. Yum!
These recipes look amazing.
Could you please break them down into smaller portions… My children have all grown up and have moved out. They are now starting their own families.
So now it is just me and my husband.
You can easily cut the recipe in half and use a smaller cooking dish for most of these recipes. The cooking time might be slightly less for a smaller portion. In addition, the breakfast casserole dishes will keep in the fridge and can be reheated for another breakfast later in the week. Hope that might work for you.
Most of the recipes on my site make 4 servings, so the recipe can easily be cut in half. I hope that is helpful.
Thanks for so many good low-carb breakfast recipes for Mother's day brunch.
Glad you like it!
Pam, you're a great sister too, and thanks for generously sharing the kids and grandkids with me!
We do absolutely have the Best Mother anyone could ask for—I miss her terribly.
You are the best Aunt and Sister anyone could ask for –thanks for all the "Mothering" you do for my children and grandchildren!
Thanks Gwen and Michelle!
Don't forget all the mothering you do to us, your faithful readers! I think that counts! All the recipes sound fantastic btw!!
Lovely ideas! I'm glad you've been able to find the silver lining in Mothers Day 😉 XO
Debby, my pleasure!
What a great list….thank you.
Thanks Joanne, and have fun with your mom, no matter what you're doing with her.
I don't think we're doing brunch with my mom this year, otherwise I'd totally be making one of these! You always have the best breakfast/brunch recipes!
