What’s the way to mom’s heart this Mother’s Day? Breakfast in bed, of course.

 

Executive Chef Justin Walters of Sullivan’s Steakhouse and Executive Chef Bob Kalish of Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steak House are making it easy for dads and kids alike, sharing their must-try recipe for Red Velvet Waffles, which is sure to melt mom’s heart.

 

With a few simple steps and ingredients that are likely already tucked away in the pantry, this decadent dish is easy to replicate and will fool Mom into thinking you’ve been slaving away in the kitchen all morning. Serve alongside a glass of sparkling rosé to show mom just how much she’s loved and appreciated.

8. Drizzle your favorite sauce, such as raspberry or strawberry sauce or maple syrup, and/or fresh raspberries or sliced strawberries.
