26 Of Our Favorite Breakfast In Bed Recipes

There’s nothing quite as indulgent as breakfast in bed recipes in our opinion. And while most people think of it for holidays like Valentine’s Day or Mother’s Day, we’re all about it anytime you can swing it.

And by breakfast in bed, we mean all-out, decadent, something to toast the holiday, and a little sweet to finish it all off, all while in PJs and top knots.

Breakfast In Bed Recipes

Yes, in an ideal world, we gift all our fellow food and travel lovers trips to Italy or Mexico or anywhere else they’re dreaming of going. But, that’s not always the case. And that’s when we make a kick-butt breakfast-in-bed like this. Oh, and all without having to exert any more effort than, say, swiping the snooze button.

We’ve got everything you need right here to create a morning that’s worthy of the one you love, be it your sweetheart, your Mom, or yourself.

26 Best Breakfast In Bed Recipes

Here are must-make breakfast in bed recipes for any time you want a lazy day and something good to eat:

Cocktails and Drinks

Spiked Horchata Latte

It’s a special day and that calls for special circumstances, like spiking our Iced Almond Lattes, don’t you think?

Dirty Bloody Marys

True, we normally turn to these as a hangover cure but that doesn’t mean you can’t start your weekend with them too.

Kir Royale Pearls

Like a more elegant, adult version of bubble tea, this is a Kir where the cassis is in the pearls.

Maple Bacon Pisco Sour

Because bacon and maple are the cornerstones of breakfast, why not shake them up in this Pisco Sour?

Tropical Fruit Breakfast Smoothie

We know, that not everyone wants to hop out of bed and start boozing. In that case, you have to whip up this smoothie that’s so colorful, that you’ll forget all about mid-winter storms.

{Bicerin} Layered Mocha Coffee 

If there’s ever a day you bypass your same ol’ coffee game, let it be today and let it be with this crave-worthy layered Mocha situation.

Spicy Harissa Shakshuka Recipe

Egg Dishes

Tunisian Harissa Shakshuka Eggs

Baked eggs are big on our breakfast in bed recipes list because they require minimal effort, which is perfect for a lazy Saturday morning.

Baked Egg Boats

Can’t do breakfast without eggs and toast? Spoon Fork Bacon marries them together in these egg “boats.”

Baked Chilaquiles with Black Beans and Kale 

Dear Valentine, please know that serving us chilaquiles is a sure-fire way to win us over and this baked version means you won’t have to sweat over the stove.

Croque Monsieur Savory Bread Pudding 

Look, we all would like to jet off to Paris for Valentine’s Day and be all hearts-in-eyes and bubbly wine. Short of that, we’d like to start our day with this bread pudding that’s a twist on the Croque Monsieur. And, yes, we’d still like a coupe of Champagne, merci!

Baked French Toast

Sweet Breakfast In Bed Recipes

Vanilla Almond Baked French Toast

French Toast made to order is so not our style. We soak the bread the night before then pop it in the oven and bake it off so it’s puffy, browned, and perfect.

Salted Kouign Amann

Sometimes we like to deliver big but don’t want too much effort. These Salted Kouign Amann are made with store bought dough so they’re just as awesome but way easier to execute.

Cranberry Muffins with Walnut Crumb Topping 

Our dream wake-up call on Valentine’s Day? Wake up to the smell of these fresh-baked muffins getting pulled from the oven.

Toasted Brioche with Whipped Goat Cheese and Asian Pear Compote Recipe

Savory Dishes

Pear Pecorino and Kale Tartlets 

Pear and pecorino cheese are a match made in snacking heaven so it’s only logical that we make them for the day that celebrates awesome partnerships!

Savory Waffles with Rosemary, Ham, and Dubliner Cheese 

Like classic waffles’ older, more sophisticated cousins, these waffles have a Ph.D. in delicious.

Buckwheat Blinis

Up the ante on Vday and bring breakfast in bed to the next level with blinis, bubbly, and caviar – aka pure decadence.

Roasted Potato Breakfast Nachos 

Sometimes love means you make breakfast nachos. And by sometimes we mean always.

Toasted Brioche with Whipped Goat Cheese and Asian Pear Compote 

Toast is having its moment and we think it’s thanks to simple but sexy combinations like this.

Macadamia Banana Croissant Tarte Tatin Recipe

The Sweets

Banana Macadamia Nut Croissant Tarte Tatin 

Yes, it’s just as over-the-top and impressive as it sounds but it’s way easier to make than a traditional Tarte Tatin!

Meyer Lemon Coeur a la Crème With Raspberry Sauce 

How can you not fall in love with this recipe?

Grilled Panettone with Blackberries and Mascarpone 

Sometimes we simultaneously love-hate Shutterbean when she introduces us to combos like this that are so indulgent and easy.

Ricotta Crepes with Whipped Ricotta, Citrus, Honey, and Mint

Ricotta, meet, crepes. Crepes, ricotta. You’ll now be making awesomeness with the help of citrus and honey. K, thanks.

Steel Cut Oats with Maple Pears and Pomegranate 

If you want to make an effort to keep it relatively healthy, then have it be with an amped-up version of oatmeal like this.

Cinnamon Sugar Breakfast Puffs

There’s cinnamon. And sugar. They’re puffs. And you eat them for breakfast. Need we say more?

Pineapple and Pecan Capirotada Bread Pudding 

If we’re going to make an indulgent bread pudding this holiday, let it please be this one with salty Cotija cheese and loads of crusty bread.

Nut Brownies In A Serving Platter With Prunes And Sea Salt In Dishes

All Things Chocolate

Particularly if your breakfast in bed adventures revolve around Valentine’s Day, you’ll want to make sure you make a chocolate recipe too!

Now we wanna know? What is your favorite recipe for breakfast in bed?
