Breakfast In Bed Recipes For Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day is the perfect opportunity to enjoy a sit-down breakfast with your significant other -- just this one day it doesn't have to be the meal you skip. Surprise your sweetheart as soon as he or she wakes up with a freshly made breakfast served in bed. It will be a moment to be remembered and savored for a long time to come.

The following collection of recipes is perfect to serve your special someone, whether it actually is in bed or at the breakfast table. Look for easy recipes like the breakfast yogurt and baked French toast. Or if you're feeling a little adventurous, try the ricotta pancakes or Moroccan baked eggs. Don't forget to toast the meal with a pretty red mimosa cocktail. Any of these breakfasts are sure to delight on Valentine's Day!
Pillow Talk French Toast
This recipe truly only plays the part of a romantic breakfast -- the sliced strawberries resemble little hearts. Plus you don't need to stand at the stove to make the French toast -- it's all baked. Serve with an easy syrup made from fresh strawberries.

 Breakfast Yogurt
This breakfast couldn't be simpler -- it's just plain yogurt spiked with honey and walnuts. But it's healthy and light. Serve it on its own or alongside toast and tea.
Homemade Waffles With Honeycomb Butter And Bananas
Show someone you really care by making them this recipe for Belgian waffles. Instead of maple syrup, drizzle the waffles with honeycomb butter and top with sliced banana. It's a new twist on a breakfast classic

Fried Egg With Chorizo
Put a Spanish spin on your fried eggs with this recipe. The eggs are individually fried in garlic-infused olive oil, making them extra crispy. Sear the chorizo slices in the same pan and serve them alongside the eggs. Enjoy this breakfast with a crusty chunk of bread.
 Blueberry-Sour Cream Muffins
 These muffins will make anyone smile when you serve them for breakfast. Make a batch ahead of time if you wish or bake them fresh the same morning and have the scent of blueberries and cinnamon wafting through the house.
 Ricotta Pancakes With Orange Syrup
This recipe is famous for being a room service favorite at the Ace Hotel in New York City. The pancakes include ricotta cheese and cornmeal, creating a unique texture. Serve the breakfast drizzled with orange syrup made from freshly squeezed juice and zest.

 Moroccan Baked Eggs With Red Peppers And Spinach
This scrumptious breakfast is made to serve two lovebirds. The recipe combines sauteed spinach, strips of roasted red pepper, cream, goat cheese, and harissa (a spicy Moroccan paste) for a bit of kick. Bake the eggs in individual gratin dishes until the yolks are just set.

 Blood Orange-Pomegranate Mimosas
 Don't forget a cocktail for the toast! Instead of regular orange juice, the sparkling wine cocktail is made with blood orange juice and pomegranate juice. Garnish with pomegranate seeds for an exotic touch.
