The big day is on its way, and you want to do something a little different this year. What better way than to start nice and early by making your Valentine a romantic breakfast that’ll start their day right. Find inspiration with our Valentine’s Day breakfast ideas below.
Heart Shaped French Toast
Anything French is sure to be romantic, right? This breakfast classic can be spruced up for Valentine’s Day by simply chopping round the edges of the bread to form a heart shape. But why stop there? Get creative and show them how much you really care with individually carved pieces of bread you know they’ll appreciate. Once you’ve prepared your bread, simply coat in egg mixture and fry. For sweet French toast, add vanilla, cinnamon and all-spice.
The sophistication of eggs benedict means that it doesn't need to be changed too much, if at all, to qualify as a romantic breakfast. Poach your eggs, place on top of your lightly toasted and bacon topped muffin, then simply douse in hollandaise sauce. If you have to mix things up, why not add asparagus for a savoury twist, or replace the English muffin with brioche for something a little sweeter.
A great Valentine’s Day breakfast for those seeking something quick and easy while still looking to impress, pancake kebabs are tasty and romantic all at once. Simply combine warm American style pancakes with strawberries, blueberries and any other fruit you desire – and then skewer. You can then drizzle with syrup or honey, or simply leave as is. Using smaller pieces of (heart-shaped!) pancake works well, and makes your romantic breakfast a tad easier to tackle. Simply make them small if you’re doing them from scratch, or use a cookie cutter to get the right size.
The best Valentine’s breakfast recipes are the ones that you can customise for your Valentine, and granola is great for this. Combine rolled oats, pecans, and any other nuts of your choice to honey, seeds, puffed rice and chocolate curls, and bake the night before. Come Valentine’s Day, simply break up and top with milk and berries. What better way to say I love you than with a pre-baked breakfast!
No Valentine’s breakfast recipes list would be complete without a nod to a pastry – and with croissants being the kings of breakfast pastries, they’re a great way to surprise your loved one with a romantic breakfast. Cut in half lengthways before placing in the oven to heat and crisp. Once done, go savoury by adding scrambled eggs, bacon and cheese, or make it a sweet treat by adding strawberries and cream!
