Rise and shine! Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, a holiday, or just someone special, making breakfast in bed for your loved one is always a thoughtful gift — and one everyone can enjoy! You’ll love cooking in your gorgeous gourmet Reunion kitchen while the star of the day gets to stay snuggled under the covers. Read on for a few suggestions of breakfast spreads from simple to ooh-la-la that will knock their slipper socks off!
Quick but Delish
Croissants and coffee guarantee cozy success. Buy croissants the day before and reheat them in a 400-degree oven for 5-6 minutes to achieve the perfect flaky crust. Serve butter, jam, or apple butter in small dishes, cream in a petite pitcher, and make sure the coffee is hot. For additional delights, rinse and serve berries or drop a few chocolate squares on the tray for true breakfast decadence.
Prep and cook the night before to ensure a delectable delivery — especially if you’re not an early riser yourself! Quiche is an easy and customizable dish that you can prepare in advance and then reheat to serve. Try a classic French Quiche Lorraine or a lighter recipe that swaps out the traditional buttery crust for one made with chopped spinach and parmesan. Serve with melon balls, berries, orange juice, and — of course — ever-essential coffee!
Fast and Fresh
For just-baked goodness without the need for sifting and measuring, use pre-made cinnamon roll dough and press into a waffle maker. Cook according to appliance instructions and use icing as the “syrup.” This sweet treat pairs perfectly with an egg baked in avocado! Halve an avocado and remove the pit, then place in a ring of aluminum foil to keep it upright. Brush with olive oil, crack an egg into the center, sprinkle with salt and paprika, then broil for five minutes. Top with lime zest and serve with small seasoning shakers, several napkins, and — did we mention? — a steaming cup of coffee.
No matter the occasion, we can’t think of a better way to start the day than with mouthwatering cuisine — and if you’re looking for the kind of kitchen that can inspire such beautiful mornings, come check out Reunion. We’d love to help you find your perfect home setting for countless breakfasts in bed!
