5 Easy Valentine’s Day Breakfast Ideas

Valentine's Day Breakfast in Bed Ideas

One of the most romantic things that  you can do for a person is to cook a meal for them. So much consideration, love, and even sweat can go into a home cooked meal. I have never been much of a chef. I do try to eat at home as often as possible, so I have learned to make simple entrees that work well for my family. But setting an elaborate tablescape and gorgeous dinner presentation on a weeknight is definitely not my thing. 

But there are certain occasions that call for a little more elbow grease. On Valentine’s Day, I like to prepare at least one meal for my husband. Last year we did a low key but romantic dinner at home that you can see in this post. But this year, I wanted to go simple but still thoughtful. 

Waking up early to surprise your loved one with either a beautifully set table or breakfast in bed is a fabulous way to show them how much they mean to you. Today I have rounded up 5 easy breakfasts that you can quickly make in the morning, even before you head out the door for work that day! These 5 breakfasts are not only fast to make, but also adorable! I call that a double win!

One of the biggest tips I have in making a meal seem romantic is to put in the effort of setting the atmosphere. Even if it is a simple breakfast, play some music, set the table, and even add a few decorations.  Get creative when it comes to the decor. You don’t need to go out and buy a bunch of new Valentine’s Day items. Cut hearts out of paper, or even find some fun printable items online. I love the site The Dating Divas for printables and date ideas. I found this cute card on their site to add to the heart theme. If you are a guy still looking for some gift ideas for your lady, I have some options in this post

I know how hard it can be to wake up even earlier to set the stage for a romantic breakfast. But even if you just take 10 extra minutes to do one of these simple ideas, I am sure it will make your partner feel appreciated. I actually think these simple breakfast ideas are also great things to make for your kids on Valentine’s day if you are a parent. Or if you are hosting a Galentine’s Day brunch, you can use a few of these options as well!

1. Heart Shaped Avocado Toast

Ingredients:

bread, avocado, salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, cayenne pepper

How to Make it:

Simply toast the bread and cut with a heart shaped cookie cutter. Or if you don’t have one on hand, you can use a knife to create the shape, like I did! Mash some fresh avocado on top and spread it out evenly over the top. Top with salt, pepper, garlic powder, paprika, and cayenne pepper.

4. Egg Bakes

Ingredients: eggs, cheese, vegetables (onion, peppers, spinach), milk

How to Make It:

Chop your vegetables of choice and set aside. Crack enough eggs to fill your muffin pans. I used about one egg per space (so 6 total). Whip eggs in a bowl and add milk and cheese. Pour the mixture into the spaces, leaving a little room for expansion. Add diced vegetables once the egg mixture is in the tin. You can top with cheese if desired. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Check up on it often.

5. Strawberry Smoothies

Ingredients:

frozen strawberries, banana, milk (almond or regular), yogurt. Optional: rolled oats, honey

How to Make It:

Simply add the proportion of ingredients you desire and blend! I recommend 1/2-1 cup of yogurt and/ or oats.
