Mushroom Frittata for a Cooking Light Mother's Day Brunch

The Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club wanted to celebrate Mother's Day this month by coming up with a wonderful brunch menu.  A perfect way to celebrate the mom(s) in your life.  The Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club started last July when 5 bloggers from different parts of the U.S and Canada come together "virtually" every month to share a menu theme and recipes from Cooking Light's magazine, cookbooks and website. 

This month there will be some changes as we say goodbye to 2 members.  Aggie from Aggie's Kitchen and Helene from La Cuisine d'Helene.  Both of these busy moms have other commitments and family obligations right now.  Both Aggie and Helene will always be honorary members and can come back and join us any time.  

However, we would like to welcome 2 new moms to the Cooking Light Virtual Supper Club.  Say a big hello to Patsy from Family, Friends & Food and Sandi from Whistlestop Cafe Cooking.  Patsy lives in New Jersey and Sandi lives in Alabama.  Both of these ladies enjoy Cooking Light recipes as much as we do.  We're very happy to have them join us. 

Now, on to the Mother's Day Brunch Menu:

Patsy from Family, Friends and Food made Triple Fruit Scones
Jamie from Mom's Cooking Club made a Mushroom Frittata
Shelby from The Lives and Loves of Grumpy's Honeybunch made Waffles with Two Berry Syrup
Val from More Than Burnt Toast made a Sweet Potato and Canadian Bacon Hash
Sandi from Whistlestop Cafe Cooking made Grits Casserole with Pesto Butter

I made the Mushroom Frittata in my cast iron skillet and it was delicious.  If you like mushrooms this is the dish for you.  It can be for breakfast, brunch, lunch or even a light dinner.  The recipe calls for an exotic mushroom blend but I used half white mushrooms and half baby portabella mushrooms.

Mom's Cooking Club Lesson:  I want to wish all my friends and family a very Happy Mother's Day.  And I'm sending a huge Mother's Day wish to my own mom.  I love you mom and wish we weren't so far apart so we could have a brunch celebration together.  Happy Mother's Day everyone!
