Whether you’re making breakfast in bed for yourself or you’re trying to celebrate a holiday that entails breakfast in bed for someone else, creating the perfect breakfast spread is vital to starting your day outright. There are so many different foods and drinks that you can choose from, but not all of them are the most convenient to eat in your bed. So what should you choose?
Here are seven tasty secrets for your next breakfast in bed.
Oatmeal is a great pastime for creating a nice balanced breakfast because not only does the bowl of oatmeal itself contain many nutritional benefits, but you can also add things to the oatmeal that are healthy and add flavor.
You can add milk or some other nut milk, and you can add some honey or brown sugar for flavor. Even more, you can add some fruits and berries to the bowl of oatmeal to add texture as well as a healthy alternative to plain sugar.
Oatmeal is also easy to make, as it only requires boiling water and then adding oats until they’re soft.
Waffles are a great option for breakfast in bed because they’re easy to consume and they’re easy to make. Especially if you have a waffle maker, waffles take no longer than 10 minutes to prepare.
You can add things like berries and other fruits to the waffles for flavor and a health kick. And they create no mess for the person eating them in bed.
Avocado toast is slowly becoming one of the most popular breakfast snacks, given its delicious pairing or flavors and convenience. Not only is avocado toast great for people on the go in the morning, but it’s beneficial for the breakfast in bed experience because it creates no mess, is easy to consume, and is rich in vitamins and nutrients.
It’s also extremely easy to make, as it only requires that you make toast and spread mashed avocado on it. You can add things like nuts, seeds, and oils for extra flavor on top.
For those of you looking for a more difficult but delicious breakfast in bed meal, you can try Eggs Benedict. Eggs are difficult to master along, but this recipe requires that you poach them to ensure the yolk falls over the fluffy biscuit beneath the eggs.
Even more, you have to make sure you get the hollandaise sauce perfected, or the meal just won’t taste right. Eggs Benedict is more recommended for those with experience cooking and those looking for a more romantic breakfast experience, as it’s difficult to make.
If you don’t want to add so many different components to the plate but still want it to be filling, consider creating the breakfast burger for your adventure in bed. You can use either toast, French toast, or even pancakes for the burger bun.
For the meat, you can use either bacon or sausage. And you can add things like cheese, potatoes, and even tomato to the burger for extra flavoring.
If you’re looking for a more standard and easier-to-cook recipe, consider the blueberry pancakes for a breakfast in bed meal. You cook these just like any other pancakes, whipping up the fluffy pancake mix and placing it on a hot pan, but you add blueberries to the mix as it flattens to allow the blueberries to seep into the pancake.
You can pair these with eggs, meat, or other fruit if you wish.
Lastly, if you’re looking for a different kind of drink to make for breakfast, consider a pour over coffee. Instead of orange juice or water, bring the best pour over coffee to breakfast in bed to brighten things up. You can prepare your coffee in various ways with different-flavored syrups to help make this occasion more special.
Overall, making a great breakfast in bed requires that you create the best food that goes well together. Make sure you not only create a combination of foods that pair well together but also ensure that you consider how easy these foods are to eat in bed. Consider cooking these tasty treats in the morning for your next breakfast in bed experience.
