Our Favorite Breakfast-In-Bed Recipes

There's nothing quite as indulgent as breakfast in bed.

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.

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.

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

Dirty Bloody Mary Cocktail Recipe


Spiked Horchata Latte -- Salt & Wind

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

Dirty Bloody Marys -- Salt & Wind

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

Blood Orange Mimosas — from  Spoon Fork Bacon 

One of our favorite winter citruses meets one of our favorite breakfast drinks. 

Kir Royale Pearls — from Honestly Yum 

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

Maple Bacon Pisco Sour — from Honestly Yum 

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

Tropical Fruit Breakfast Smoothie — from Half Baked Harvest 

We know, 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, you'll forget all about mid-winter storms.

{Bicerin} Layered Mocha Coffee -- Salt & Wind

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 Shakshuka Egg Recipe


Tunisian Harissa Shakshuka Eggs -- Salt & Wind

Baked eggs are big for us because they require minimal effort, which is perfect for a lazy Saturday morning.

Baked Egg Boats — from Spoon Fork Bacon 

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

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.

Black Truffle Fried Egg with Mushroom and Creamy Blue Cheese — from What Katie Ate 

Truffles make everything special and are especially unexpected at breakfast.

Croque Monsieur Savory Bread Pudding -- Salt & Wind

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 Recipe


Vanilla Almond Baked French Toast -- Salt & Wind

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 — from The Pig and Quill 

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

Cranberry Muffins with Walnut Crumb Topping — from Turntable Kitchen

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

Pear Pecorino and Kale Tartlets — from So Let's Hangout 

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

Caramelized Onion and Goat Cheese Tartlets with Balsamic Syrup — from What Katie Ate 

Puff pastry makes everything feel a bit fancier, wouldn’t you say?

Savory Waffles with Rosemary, Ham, and Dubliner Cheese — from Kitchen Konfidence

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

Buckwheat Blinis — from HonestlyYum

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 — from Shutterbean 

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

Toasted Brioche with Whipped Goat Cheese and Asian Pear Compote -- Salt & Wind

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

Banana Croissant Tarte Tatin Recipe


Banana Macadamia Nut Croissant Tarte Tatin -- Salt & Wind

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!

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

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.

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