The Best Recipes for Breakfast In Bed
Sometimes, breakfast in bed is just so much better. With these great picks of incredibly delicious and easily servable options, eating breakfast from the comfort of your own cozy oasis has never been tastier. Treat yourself to some of the best breakfast options ever, such as pancakes stacked a mile high, scrumptious cinnamon rolls, or a fresh omelet. And of course, don't forget the piping hot coffee.
Raspberry-Chocolate Chip Kaiserschmarrn
Kaiserschmarrn is an Austrian dessert named for a former emperor who loved shredded pancakes. In this indulgent version, we created the fluffiest pancake you've ever had, cut it into pieces, gave it crispy, buttery edges, and served it with lucious toppings like raspberry and chocolate. It truly is a breakfast fit for royalty. Go ahead and eat in bed; the bite-sized pieces make it less messy than regular pancakes.
Be-Still-My-Heart Breakfast Pizza
As delicious as cold, last-night's pizza can be for breakfast, some occasions call for a little something extra. Perfectly cooked eggs, tender heart-shaped dough with a crisp bottom, and traditional hot Italian sausage make the cutest morning pizza. Add whatever extra toppings you, or whomever you're making this for, love. Just make sure not to crack the egg into the bacon heart, because it won't cook.
Raspberry and Cream Cheese Danish Roll
Make holiday mornings even more special with this raspberry danish. Tender, golden dough filled with fruity jam enriched with cream cheese creates the perfect pastry to serve family and friends. Master the jelly roll technique by following the steps in this simple recipe.
Broiled Grapefruit with Ginger and Maple Cream
Not overly sweet, this elegant, seasonal dessert is a grapefruit-lover's delight. To whip the maple-infused cream into fluffy peaks with ease, start with a frozen metal bowl and whisk. Using chilled tools helps the cream to develop and hold body quickly.
Sweet Potato Home Fries with Eggs
With the sweet potatoes already roasted the day before, this breakfast is ready in a flash. Serve with 1 orange or 2 clementines to complete the meal.
Easiest Cinnamon Rolls Ever
Holiday mornings and chilly afternoons are made complete with warm, gooey cinnamon rolls. If you want to make them for breakfast, you can make the rolls the night before, cover them well, and refrigerate the unbaked rolls overnight. Just let them come to room temperature before baking them as directed. If you prefer a more gooey roll, bake for less time.
It's takes a lot for a meal to be Gilmore-approved, but these pancakes have done it. This stack is perfect for a lazy Saturday morning or a Gilmore Girls viewing party.
Chocolate Buckwheat Waffles with Juicy Berries
I've remade the typical syrup-doused waffle breakfast into a lower-sugar, fruit-forward, gluten-free, whole-grain plate with 273 fewer calories. In place of refined all-purpose flour, I go with gluten-free buckwheat flour, which adds 2.4g filling fiber per serving; strawberries add another 2.4g. Barely sweetened berries and yogurt replace maple syrup, slashing 18g added sugar per serving.
Creamy Brioche and Egg Bake
This stand alone breakfast dish is an upgrade from the usual breakfast casserole. Baking eggs in brioche and heavy cream allows for perfectly set, soft, and runny eggs. Fresh herbs and rich egg and meaty sausage flavors round out this bake and give it irresistable texture. Ask for brioche at your local grocery store or bakery and they are sure to have it.
Steel Cut Oatmeal with Apples
Wake up to the smell of oats, subtle coconut, warm spices, and Granny Smith apples. All you have to do is let your slow cooker or Instant Pot to make breakfast. What could be better than that? This recipe serves 10 and is gluten-free, so it's perfect for serving family and friends during the holidays.
Blueberry-Sour Cream Muffins
When our crumbly-crisp topping meets the light, fluffy belly of this muffin, you'll swoon.
Start with strong-brewed French-roast coffee, add a splash of hazelnut liqueur, and finish with vanilla bean, cream, and sugar. Because what better way is there to kick off a festive brunch or settle down to dessert than with a spiked cup of coffee?
Overnight Coffee Cake
You can whip up this sweet breakfast at night, and chill it. When you wake up the next morning, pop it in the oven then crawl back in bed for 30 minutes while it bakes.
Here's a breakfast muffin you don't have to feel bad about. We opted for canola oil over butter, incorporated 50% white whole-wheat flour, and kept the added sugar low by leaning on the sweetness of ripe summer strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries. Peaches will be a welcome addition later in the season.
These single-serving pancakes are a bit more like the custardy center bite of French toast: fluffy, eggy, and golden delicious.
Vodka and orange juice– it doesn’t get much easier. Here's to everyone's favorite brunch cocktail!
Pancetta, Fried Egg, and Red-Eye Gravy Oatmeal
Blueberry Açaí Smoothie Bowl
Drink your morning smoothie from a bowl! With a variety of toppings, this easy breakfast movement is the healthiest way to turn a smoothie into a morning meal.
Veggie Eggy Scramble
Katie admits that she and her family "aren't big morning people." They rush through and typically grab what's convenient. We like the idea of getting them to incorporate veggies into the morning meal, and it's not hard or time-consuming to do. Katie can spend a few minutes prepping everything the night before (including beating the egg-cheese mixture) to make the next morning a breeze. When they need this to be grab and go, they can stuff the scramble into a whole-wheat pita.
Any Flavor Buttermilk Coffee Cake
Customize your topping with any fruit-nut combo. We like plum preserves, sliced plums, and almonds, or strawberry jam, sliced strawberries, and pecans.
Blueberry Coffee Cake
Combine the dry ingredients the night before for a quick morning start. Serve this cake warm or at room temperature.

Sea Breeze Mimosa
The beloved brunch staple gets a glamorous update. Add a little sparkle to your Mother's Day morning by mingling a standard mimosa with the flavors of a sea breeze cocktail (vodka topped with cranberry and grapefruit juices).
Sweet Fig Smoothies
This recipe offers a great use for figs that are very ripe (or even overripe) and need to be used soon. The riper the fig, the sweeter and more delicious in this creamy breakfast drink.
Grapefruit, Avocado, and Prosciutto Breakfast Salad
Bright, refreshing grapefruit pairs surprisingly well with nutty-earthy toasted sesame oil. This meal is full of satiating heart-healthy fats that will keep you full for a long time.
