Very Berry Croissant Bake
What better start to Mother’s Day than the perfect brunch recipe? Try your hand at this very berry croissant bake to make mom feel like a million bucks.

Then, start up your Big Green Egg in the morning, squeeze some fresh orange juice and slice some fresh fruit, and you’ll have a dish that is sure to please.
Artichoke and Spinach Dip
If lunch or dinner are coming up, who doesn’t love artichoke dip? This recipe for Artichoke and Spinach Dip can be made up to two days before the final baking and serving. Pick up some pita chips and you will be all set. This take on the dip is loaded with mozzarella and Parmesan cheese and will serve a crowd.
Big Green Egg Baby Back Ribs
One of the most popular recipes on the Big Green Egg website is their Dr. BBQ’s All Aces Baby Back Ribs. This recipe serves a crowd (9 people), so if you have a big family, it could be just the thing. These ribs take some time to cook, so be sure you plan ahead. One accessory that will make the job easier is the Rib and Roast Rack.
Whole Chicken on the BGE
Have a smaller family or less time to cook? Big Green Egg’s version of super-moist chicken is the best one out there. Season the bird with your favorite barbecue rub recipe and let it rest for 30 minutes. You can use a soda can to support the chicken of course, but Big Green Egg has a Ceramic Chicken Roaster Eggcessory that is a dream to work with. You fill the roaster cup with your choice of drink or cider and position the chicken on top of it. In about an hour and twenty minutes, you will be able to present Mom with the juiciest roasted chicken ever.
Mexican Street Corn
While the chicken is roasting, you can prepare an amazing side dish that is guaranteed to put a smile on Mom’s face. Remove all but one layer of husk on each ear of corn and soak it in water for an hour to prevent burning. Simply place the corn on the grill and cook for around 15 minutes. Take the corn off the grill and remove the husk. The secret to this side dish is the chile seasoned queso fresco and lime juice mixture you slather over each ear of corn. Give this Mexican Street Corn recipe a try on the Big Green Egg and Mom will be shouting ¡Ole!
Homemade Ice Cream Sandwiches
When cooking a special dinner, it is always smart to make some of your dishes ahead of time, so you aren’t scrambling at the last minute. With a bit of advance planning, you can use your Big Green Egg to bake your favorite cookie recipe a day or two ahead of Mother’s Day. Oatmeal cranberry works great for this recipe and so does Chocolate Chocolate Chip. Bake your cookies on the BGE and scoop Mom’s favorite flavor of ice cream in between two of them to make a sandwich.
