Mother's Day is coming up quickly, and many readers ask about easy Spanish breakfast or brunch dishes, especially easy enough for a novice cook, or for the kids. We picked out three that we think will be a hit with mom, but won't keep you in the kitchen all morning. Churros are the classic Spanish fritters that everyone loves. (Be sure to use caution and to supervise when cooking with oil.) Next, the classic bread pudding the Spanish call torrijas. The third choice really gives you lots of options - revueltos, which are scrambled eggs mixed with your choice of ingredients. The Spanish combine eggs with lots of different foods, from shrimp or ham, to mushrooms or vegetables. Don't forget to make some espresso or Spanish hot chocolate, and let mom read the paper.
