Valentine's Day breakfast in bed recipes. This meal does wonders as breakfast in bed the day after Valentine's Day for anyone who wants to keep the romance going.
Romance is the air. Flower delivery trucks clog roads. Lovers come together and share sexy meals. It's Valentine's Day.

Every year, the question arises: what's the perfect sexy meal for this Valentine's Day? For some, sexy is about the ingredients; for others, it's about memories. Still, most everyone can agree that the romance is all about the setting and what setting can be more romantic than breakfast in bed? You can light a few candles, have a great meal, keep the massage oil handy, and the bed is there in case it's needed for things...(like post meal naps, what were you thinking?)

Of course, not any breakfast will do. You can't serve shredded wheat and a half glass of juice and expect the sparks to fly. Romantic breakfast in bed is the time to bring out the big guns, like the menu below.

Also, in case you were wondering, this meal also does wonders as breakfast in bed the day after Valentine's Day for anyone who wants to keep the romance going.

Stuffed French Toaststuffed-frenchtoast.jpg

This dish is going to play on the natural association of romance and chocolate.

  • 1 cup Nutella (divided)
  • 8 slices brioche
  • Juice and zest of 2 oranges
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • Cooking spray
  • Powdered sugar

  1. Take half of the cup of Nutella and put in the microwave for 30 seconds; remove; this will make it easier to spread.
  2. Spread the Nutella on half of the slices of bread and squeeze about a tablespoon of orange juice on the Nutella; top the Nutella with the other slice of bread; press down so the bread sticks together.
  3. Beat the eggs, cream, melted butter, and orange zest until the eggs are scrambled; dip both sides of the French toast into the egg mixture, being sure that all of the bread is covered.
  4. Spray the cooking spray in a skillet and set it to medium-high heat; when the skillet is hot, cook the French toast for 2 minutes, then flip and cook another 2 minutes; repeat until the egg mixture is completely cooked all the way through.
  5. Top with powdered sugar and a dollop of Nutella.

Fruit in Crème Anglaiseberries-creme-anglaise.jpg

Crème anglaise is a fancy term for vanilla custard. It is a great bed on which to serve berries, but it can take time to prepare properly. If you don't have time, use vanilla pudding instead.

  • 4 eggs yolks
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 cups cream
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 1 cinnamon stick, optional
  • 2 cup mixed berries

  1. Mix the sugar and yolks and set aside.
  2. In a saucepan over medium heat, bring the cream to the point where it is starting to boil; add a few tablespoons of the cream to the egg/sugar mixture to temper the eggs; slowly start to whisk in the rest of the cream.
  3. Return the cream/egg/sugar mixture to the stove and add the vanilla bean and the optional cinnamon stick; cook the mixture for 4 to 5 minutes at the point where it is just starting to steam; it should begin to thicken.
  4. Finally, strain the crème anglaise into a bowl that is sitting in ice to stop the cooking process. Serve immediately or keep in the refrigerator covered tightly in plastic wrap.
  5. When you are ready to serve, fill the bottom of a bowl with crème anglaise and top with mixed berries.
