10 Healthy and Delicious Breakfast-in-Bed Recipes to Make This Weekend
Breakfast in bed is one of those things that always happens on TV but rarely happens in real life. (And no, being too hungover to move your Doritos-eating somewhere besides your bed does not count.) So this weekend, we say sneak out of bed nice and early, whip up a feast in the kitchen, throw it on a tray and surprise your boo with some breakfast in bed like a character straight out of a Nicholas Sparks novel. Below, 10 healthy breakfast-in-bed recipes for you to choose from, from breakfast tacos to healthier pumpkin spice waffles to good ol’ avocado toast. And don’t forget the mimosas!
Smoked Salmon Pizza
Via Spoon Fork Bacon
Like a smoked salmon bagel but — dare I say it? — better. To avoid having to make your own pizza dough before you’ve even had your morning coffee, just grab some of the pre-made whole wheat stuff from Trader Joe’s and add the toppings. (We won’t tell.)
Caprese Omelet with Sauteed Spinach
Via Modern Granola
This omelet breakfast gives you the best of both worlds: It looks like you worked really hard on it because it’s so darn pretty, but it only takes 10 minutes to throw together. Bonus points if you cut the tomatoes into the shape of hearts.
Lemon-Poppy Seed Pancakes with Blueberry Cream
Via Be Well Philly
Impress whomever’s snoozing in your bed with these fancy-pants pancakes that pack lots of flavor and just 296 calories per serving — plus 13 grams of protein!
Autumn Avocado Toast with Gorgonzola, Pears, Toasted Walnuts and Honey
Via How Sweet Eats
Avocado toast is the Jennifer Lawrence of meals: It’s loved by all and, really, can do no wrong. Plus, it’s so easy to make. This variation is topped with sliced pears, walnuts and gorgonzola.
Grilled Wedge Salad with Fried Egg, Bacon and Cranberry Feta
Via My Name Is Yeh
Guys, guys, guys: This one is way easier than it looks. All it requires is eight ingredients — including salt, pepper and olive oil — and like 10 minutes. And BAM: You’ve got a restaurant-worthy salad in bed.
Migas Breakfast Tacos
Via Love and Lemons
You know what’s better than tacos for dinner? Tacos for breakfast. These are heavy on the veggies and lighter on the cheese, making them completely guilt-free. And if you really want to impress, pair ‘em with a Bloody Maria.
Superfood Avocado Toast with Kale Tapenade
Via Hello Glow
Here, another avocado-toast concoction to add to the mix, because you really can never have enough. This one is a healthy-breakfast superstar, featuring eggs, a kale tapenade (much simpler to make than its fancy name suggests), pumpkin seeds and, of course, lots of avocado.
Baked Chilaquiles with Black Beans and Kale
Via Bojon Gourmet
If you and your S.O. downed one too many glasses of rosé the night before, this healthy take on the tried-and-true hangover food should help bring you back to life.
Healthy Pumpkin Spice Waffles
Via Cookie + Kate
I mean, need we say more?
