It seems everyone has a different answer to the question “What’s the perfect breakfast in bed?” Some prefer the simplicity of a pastry and coffee. Others want something crumb-free, like scrambled eggs or oatmeal, to avoid a mess. If you ask us, the best breakfast in bed meals have an element of decadence to them that elevates the overall experience. Since many of us are spending so much time at home these days, we thought it was a good opportunity to share some fancy breakfast recipes. Treat eat yourself to one of these tasty meals this weekend — or any day of the week if you’re working from home. Tip: These fancy breakfast recipes are perfect to make for mom on Mother’s Day (it’s coming up on May 10!)
This British breakfast from BBC Good Food features a wonderful pair: Avocado and eggs. Throw some salty, crispy meat into the mix, and you have the ultimate 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 an extra hot kick.
Warm rolls fresh out of the oven are hard to beat. These glazed blueberry rolls from Country Living offer a twist on the traditional cinnamon bun. Just know that these rolls are not for the faint of heart — the recipe takes three hours, but they’re well worth the effort. If you’re willing to put in the work, the end result won’t disappoint.
Quinoa for breakfast? Yep, it’s a thing. Taste of Home’s quinoa breakfast bowl is similar to 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.
