When it comes to breakfast in bed, some prefer the simplicity of a pastry and coffee, while other wants something crumb-free, like scrambled eggs or oatmeal. We think the best breakfasts in bed feature decadent dishes, so you can really indulge in the experience. Since many of us are still spending lots of time at home, we thought it was a good opportunity to share some fancy breakfast recipes. Treat yourself to one of these tasty meals this weekend (or any day of the week if you’re working from home).
Fancy Breakfast Recipes for the Ultimate Breakfast in Bed
This British breakfast from BBC Good Food features a wonderful pairing: Avocado and eggs. Throw some salty, crispy meat into the mix, and you’ll have a savory, flavorful breakfast in bed dish. The recipe can be ready in 15 minutes and makes enough food for two people. Tip: Sprinkle some hot sauce on your avocado soldiers for some extra heat.
Warm rolls fresh out of the oven are hard to beat. These glazed blueberry rolls offer a twist on the traditional cinnamon bun. But beware—these rolls are not for the faint of heart. The recipe is time intensive. But if you’re willing to put in the work, the result won’t disappoint.
Quinoa for breakfast? Yep, it’s a thing. Taste of Home’s quinoa breakfast bowl is like an upgraded version of your favorite oatmeal. Quinoa packs a good protein punch, and the fruit on top adds color and Vitamin C. If you want to keep your breakfast in bed on the healthier side, this recipe is a good option.
French toast is a well-loved lazy morning breakfast dish. Add some bananas and walnuts, and you have an indulgent meal fit for a fancy breakfast in bed occasion. This one gets messy, so be careful eating it in bed. But don’t let that stop you from making it ASAP.
We love French toast so much, we had to include another recipe for it. And this one’s extra special. If you happen to have any leftover banana bread, we highly recommend checking out this recipe for banana bread French toast from How Sweet Eats. Yes, it’s as good as it sounds.
