Grilled French Toast Breakfast Sandwiches

There’s pretty much nothing better than being a mom.  Sure I’ve had my battles with being sleep-deprived, tempertantrums of what Stella was/was not willing to wear and of course I have left the house with mass amounts of dry shampoo in my hair, baby spit up on my shirt and most recently stickers stuck to my butt (thanks, Stella).  But seriously, there is nothing better than being a mom.  Baby laughs, preschool jokes and of course, hearing “ma ma” for the first time or a real, “I love you” is just something you can’t describe.

So in honor of the approaching Mother’s Day I am sharing a few easy recipes that someone other than Mom can prepare!  So print this recipe out, and leave it on the counter if your significant other needs a little clue at what you’d like for breakfast on Mother’s Day!

Thanks to all the moms out there, especially my mom, Debbie/Bubbie and my mother-in-law, Claire/Nana who are both amazing grandmas but most importantly amazing moms who have been role models to me as a mom and shown me how to be patient, loving and kind.
