With Mother’s Day around the corner, you might be thinking what is the best way to show her your love and appreciation for her on that special day. And one of the best ways is to surprise her with a homemade dinner. After all, it shows that you went through all the effort to cook or bake something she loves. And you know what they say – the best way to earn a woman’s heart is through their stomach. Hence here are some great Mother’s Day dinner ideas to surprise your mom.
Herb-Crusted Beef Tenderloin
If your mom loves beef, and something a little more elegant tasting, a herb-crusted beef tenderloin is a great dinner choice. Not only does this classic dish look incredibly impressive, but it also tastes wonderful. The best treat you can give your mom on such a special day.
Chicken-and-Broccoli Skillet Pasta
If you know you will be running short of time on Mother’s Day, but still want to cook her something delicious as a surprise, a chicken-and-broccoli skillet pasta is the best choice. You only need 30 short minutes to cook this delicious one-dish dinner.
Asparagus with Cheese Sauce and Herb Breadcrumb
This is a great dish to add to the Mother’s day dinner surprise for your mom. With a stress-free cheese sauce that won’t dominate this dish, spring’s favorite veggie becomes even more delightful. Perfect for a celebration.
Grilled Steak Salad with Walnut Dressing
Can’t decide if you want to cook a classic steak or make a refreshing salad for your mom? Why not do both. Simply serve a wall-seasoned grilled steak with her favorite greens and a walnut dressing. Not only will it look colorful and appetizing, but it will also be not too filling – which means more dishes she can eat during this Mother’s Day celebration dinner.
Spring Lettuce and Leek Soup
Does your mom love hot soups? If she does, a spring lettuce and leek soup would be a great choice. Not only can she start the celebratory meal with a light and pretty soup, but it is a great way to celebrate Mother’s day during spring with fresh spring ingredients.
Just like how your mom used to bake lasagne for you, now, you can make one for her too. But since it is a special day, you can make your lasagne look unique by rolling it up. By doing so, you can get the same great taste, but with a pretty presentation that is perfect for some holiday vibes.
Are you searching for a one-dish meal that is affordable, comforting, and classic? Look no further than a chicken-mushroom-sage casserole then. Not only is it budget-friendly, but it still looks and tastes great, and will definitely elevate the dinner celebration. It also pairs well with your mom’s favorite wine.
Chicken à la King
Just like the name suggests, chicken à la king tastes and looks fit for a king (or queen in this case). In addition, it is a great way to get all the comfort of a chicken hot pot pie, but in a more holiday-friendly serving size in its small neat packages.
