Spoil Mum This Mother's Day with These Breakfast in Bed Ideas

Spoil Mum This Mother's Day with These Breakfast in Bed Ideas

For most us we don’t need a reason to spoil mum (we do it anyway!), but Mother’s Day is the perfect time to really pull out all the stops and what better way to ensure that mum’s day starts out perfectly than by making her the most amazing breakfast in bed!

Don’t forget that when it comes to food, how it looks is almost as important as how it tastes, so a beautiful tray, flowers, and of course a card or two will make breakfast even more special!

Waffles and Pancakes!

Waffles and Pancakes

You can’t go wrong with waffles or pancakes for breakfast! Waffles might be a little trickier to make as you’ll need a waffle iron, but pancakes are dead simple. Instead of going for the traditional ice-cream, why not make taco style pancakes stuffed with diced fresh fruit with a dollop of cream or yogurt and honey on them? If in doubt, remember that you can’t go wrong with heart shaped pancakes.

Eggs!

Poached Eggs

Cut a heart out of piece of toast and fry and egg in it for a beautiful and different way to do eggs. Or combine them with a pancake and make a portrait out of scrambled egg hair, pancake face and fruit for decorations!

Croissants

Croissants

Croissants have come a long way since the plain butter and jam ones. Now you can get a whole range of delicious and novel ones ranging from the common chocolate croissant to ones with raspberries and other berries, to ones that are glazed with a variety of decadent toppings. Find something completely different and pair it with different jams or marmalades, and cheeses for unique breakfast combinations.

Fruit

Fruit

If mum prefers fruit for breakfast that doesn’t mean that you can’t spice it up by preparing it in a beautiful way. Go wild!

Muesli

Muesli

Muesli may not sound like the most amazing of breakfasts, and not something that you would traditionally think of making for mother’s day, but with a little creativity, imagination and layering of fruits, nuts, berries and mueslis, you can create beautiful looking and healthy breakfasts.

Quiches

Quiches

Quiches are not only super easy to make, but they are delightful and deliciously different breakfast ideas! There are a wide variety of recipes available, ranging from sweet to savoury to sinfully delicious. In fact there is very little that you can’t put into a quiche. Our favourites? Egg, pine seeds, crispy bacon and Roquefort cheese. Serve with a piquant sauce and rocket for a breakfast treat!

Good luck with spoiling mum this Mother’s Day and a happy Mother’s Day from all of us here at the Bed King.
