Breakfast in Bed: Tips and Recipes to WOW Your Sweetheart

A lazy Sunday morning, delicate sun rays streaming through the windows, and breakfast in bed! Isn’t that dreamy?

If you want to surprise your sweetheart and make them feel loved, this classic move will help.

The question is, what do you cook?

Ideally, the recipe you pick should be quick, simple, and delicious (duh)!

It’ll be a cherry on the top if you already have the ingredients on hand. It’ll save you an early morning run to the grocery store (isn’t that a relief?)

To assist you in winning your partner over, we’ve compiled a few yummy recipes in this blog post. Let’s get started.

A Classic French Toast

Melt-in-the-mouth insides, deliciously golden-brown outsides, and perfectly soft – all the things that make French toast irresistible. Serve them with a generous drizzle of maple syrup, or load them with a spoonful of butter – your tastebuds will always be delighted. Fresh berries and banana slices are popular options, too.

The best part? You can make French toast in your trusty air fryer. All you’ll need are five good-for-you pantry staples and a few minutes of air frying.

Here’s an easy-peasy recipe for you:

  • Take a shallow bowl and whisk eggs, cinnamon powder, milk, and vanilla essence together.
  • Dip a thick bread slice in the mixture and coat it evenly.
  • Place the coated slice of bread in a lightly greased air fryer basket and air fry at 350°F for about 4 minutes on each side.

Making this air fryer French toast recipe is a breeze. Just make sure you don’t oversoak the bread in the egg mixture. A soggy toast can place a damper on things.

Savory Avocado Toast with Poached Eggs

Eggs are a breakfast must-have. They are just the amount and type of protein you need to kickstart your day. Plus, when served hot, they are delightfully satisfying.

The recipe we’re sharing with you has poached eggs on a creamy avocado layer on a crusty bread. It’s so easy you won’t even realize you spent some time cooking. Can’t wait to try?

Here’s what you need to do:

  • Toast bread slices as you like. White or brown bread – take your pick.
  • Mash ripe avocado in a bowl and add flavor with some black pepper and salt.
  • Poach eggs in a poaching pan. A stovetop will work, too.
  • Now, layer the bread with avocados and poached eggs.
  • Sprinkle some red pepper flakes and dig in!

You can experiment with different toppings according to your preference. How about some crumbled feta cheese?

Breakfast Burritos

Warm meat and stretchy cheese with fluffy eggs and crisp tortilla – you just can’t say no! Burritos are a flavor fiesta.

Plus, they’re versatile. You can add a few vegetables of your choice for a color boost or add a sauce of your liking.

You can serve them with a fresh blob of sour cream or keep things simple with a side of sliced avocado.

  • Scramble eggs in a skillet over medium heat. Season them when done.

  • Layer the tortilla with scrambled eggs, shredded Mozzarella cheese, and cooked sausage. Add veggies if you’d like.

Tips for Serving Breakfast in Bed

There’s something really cute and intimate about surprising your partner with breakfast in bed. But there’s a lot to take care of. From keeping it quiet and clean to finishing in time and setting up, there’s a lot you have to get right.

Don’t worry, though. We have some failproof tips.

Plan Ahead

You can’t do it all in the morning. So, to keep the experience stress-free, do as many preparations at night as possible. Pick out the tray you’ll serve the breakfast in, whisk batters that can be whisked ahead of time, and keep the condiments ready.

Add a Loving Touch

The whole idea behind serving breakfast in bed is to express love. And trust us, the gesture isn’t complete without a bunch of fresh flowers, an emotional note, and some chocolates. Decide how you want to present the items beforehand. It’ll save you the last-minute hassle.

Keep the Rest of the Day Free

If the breakfast-in-bed idea is a part of a bigger celebration, make sure you keep the rest of your day free, too. You can spend your day in PJs with your darling, watch a movie, paint a few pots, and maybe even cook dinner together at the end. Oh, and your phone – that thing is off-limits!

Making Memories Together

Ready to woo your beloved with a sweet, sweet morning? We wish you luck. Just remember to keep things simple. It’ll help you avoid mess-ups. And please, don’t wake up the sleepyhead anytime before 7.30! You don’t want them to start their day with grumpiness.
