I love breakfast.
I just don’t particularly love it first thing in the morning.
I have friends whose partners regularly bring them a cup of hot coffee or tea for them to sip in bed. I’m too impatient. I want to be up and out and see what the day is like.
Everyone in my family (that I know of) crawls out of bed, throws on a robe and sits around, sipping coffee while waking up. I throw on my work-out clothes, then my sweats, and head out the door with my dog to watch the sun rise (or the moon set).
Then I eat breakfast, and only then do I have coffee. Followed by more coffee.
So when I was offered this article on breakfast in bed…. I thought that maybe other people would be interested in that idea.
As for me – I’m just interested in the food. I love breakfast food. Read on for some great ideas….

Although it’s not possible to enjoy this treatment every morning, making it a weekend ritual is. Of course, waking up with a fresh cup of joe is essential. According to information from Owly Choice, investing in a quality coffee maker will guarantee that you brew the perfect cup of java to complete a glorious breakfast in bed.
From healthy options to gourmet creations and the classic morning favorites, the choices are endless. To tweak your interest, we’ve rounded up some breakfast-in-bed-ideas guaranteed to make you want to get up bright and early.
Strawberry Coconut Chia Parfaits
Strawberry coconut chia parfaits are easy to make, tasty, have a lot of nutritional value, and are vibrant in color. They’re served in almond milk layers, coconut yogurt, maca powder, fresh strawberries, and coconut chips for an exquisite balance of tart and sweet flavors.
To make strawberry chia parfaits, you’ll need a blender. Add the ingredients into one of these, blend for roughly 45 seconds or until it’s well combined, and pour the contents into an air-tight container. Next, you need to whisk in the chia seeds, seal the receptacle, and refrigerate the mixture overnight.
Persian Kuku With Saffron Potatoes and Herbs

Like a frittata, this yummy recipe calls for an abundance of fresh herbs, saffron potatoes, eggs, toasted walnuts, and other delicious ingredients. It’s both gluten and dairy-free, perfect for vegetarians, and ready to eat in as little as 25 minutes.

Kanelbullar is the Swedish version of the classic cinnamon bun. If you like a bit of sweet but don’t particularly enjoy exceptionally rich and gooey pastries, this should be the perfect treat for you. Unlike its super-sweet, oversized American counterpart, it doesn’t come dripping with icing. Instead, it’s topped with sliced almonds and pearl sugar.
In Sweden, a cup of coffee is almost always enjoyed with a delicious and spicy Kanelbullar.
Banana and Chocolate Chip Baked French Toast
If you enjoy pastries, then this is a recipe you have to try. This bread pudding/French toast hybrid is prepared using cinnamon swirl bread. The loaf slices are layered, sprinkled with bananas and chocolate chips, dipped in a milk and egg mixture, and baked in the oven. The next time you prepare breakfast in bed, try out this recipe. Your significant other will love you for it.
Breakfast Grilled Cheese
Admit it. If you could have grilled cheese sandwiches for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, you’d gladly indulge. With a multitude of cheeses and a wide range of additional ingredients, your options are near endless. However, this recipe comes with a gourmet twist.
It’s prepared by stacking fontina and sharp cheddar cheese, chopped chives, basil pesto, crushed red pepper flakes, soft scrambled eggs, and a drizzle of honey between two slices of buttery sourdough bread. Being quick and easy to prepare, it makes the perfect breakfast dish for both weekdays and weekends.

Sticking to the classics is almost always a guaranteed winner, especially when it comes to chocolate chip waffles. However, this recipe holds an exciting and fun twist.
These waffles are sprinkled with mini chocolate chips and get their distinct flavor from real butter and plain full-cream milk yogurt, giving it a crispy exterior and a light and fluffy interior. Quick and easy to prepare, this option allows you to serve breakfast in as little as ten minutes.
To Wrap Up
Although breakfast is the most important meal of the day, enjoying it in bed is a luxury. Yet, it’s one of the most remarkable ways of showing your significant other that you care. Whether you stick to the classic bacon, egg, and toast or prepare something more exotic is up to you. The message you’re trying to convey, however, remains the same.
