Whether you’re treating someone for a special occasion, or want to make the most of a relaxing Sunday, a well done breakfast in bed is always a great start to the day. We’ve compiled a few great ideas to make your breakfast in bed extra tasty, and extra snappable.
An Instagram classic, avocado on toast has become a firm favourite to many. A relatively easy yet extremely delicious dish, avocado on toast is a wonderful breakfast in bed choice. Simple mash up or slice your avocado and then add it to your toasted bread of choice.
Slightly more complex, eggs royale are a great way to show off some culinary skills, making the perfect poached egg is a tricky skill to master. Add your salmon and poached egg to an English muffin and top with hollandaise sauce and chives for the perfect finishing touch. If you’re an avocado lover, you can even add a layer underneath your salmon.
A big hit on Insta, Acai bowls are beautifully colourful, healthy and refreshing. Completely customisable, start with a smoothie base of your choice and then top with whatever you fancy that day. Sliced banana, chia seeds, shredded coconuts and granola are all popular topping choices.
Another breakfast that’s popularity soared thanks to social media, baked oats are excellent for those that want to upgrade their usual oatmeal. Combine your oats with your chosen milk like normal, add some tasty ingredients such as berries, chocolate, syrup or bananas and then bake in the oven. Ideal for those that love to eat cake for breakfast.
Perfect for those that love variety, a continental breakfast has a little bit of everything. Usually comprising of fresh fruits, pastries, muffins and cereal, there’s nothing more appealing than a good selection of food in the morning.
Whether you’re a tea or a coffee person, most people love to start their day with a hot drink. If you have plenty of free space on your tray, why not include a small tea pot or cafetiere to your display? If hot drinks aren’t for you, then a glass of juice is a great way to wake you up in the morning and will add a fun pop of colour to your tray.
Once you’ve decided what you want for your breakfast, it’s time to make your tray look Instagram-ready. Wooden trays are a great choice for those looking to achieve the classic look, with some even coming with foldable legs to make eating even easier. Make sure the tray doesn’t look too crowded by spacing your plates and bowls out nicely. Add a small vase with a couple of fresh flowers and a book for the perfect finishing touch. All you need to do is take your photo and upload it to be the envy of all your followers.
