Culinary Inspiration

Valentine’s Day is a fun time to celebrate with the people you love – whether it’s a romantic partner, a family member or a best friend. Candy and flowers are a classic go-to, but if you’re still feeling gift-shopping burnout from the holiday season, a really special way to say “I love you” is to make breakfast in bed for the person you adore.

Waking up early to surprise your love with a tray of hot coffee and yummy eats is a gesture that always surprises and delights. As the saying goes, the quickest way to someone’s heart is through their stomach!

Pancakes and eggs are both quintessential breakfast staples, and we love them too. But if you’d like to go the extra mile – and let’s be honest, your special someone deserves the best – we’ve got some more creative options.

Each of these Valentine’s Day recipes is from our special brunch recipe collection, and we think you’ll find there’s something here for everyone!

Chocolate Chip and Walnut Muffins

Chocolate Chip and Walnut Muffins

If your Valentine has a sweet tooth, these Chocolate Chip and Walnut Muffins are going to sweep them off their feet. The heavenly smell of these freshly baked muffins alone might wake them up before you’re ready to surprise them. But that’s just a risk you’ll have to take. Serve these warm, chocolatey muffins with a cup of coffee or tea for maximum Valentine’s Day effect!
Brioche French Toast with Walnut Crumble

Brioche French Toast and Walnut Crumble

French toast is a breakfast-in-bed classic and one of our favorite indulgences. Our Brioche French Toast with Walnut Crumble is a scrumptious upgrade by using flakey brioche as opposed to Texas Toast. With added hints of lemon zest and vanilla extract, this French toast could be the tastiest your Valentine has ever had. You can always top it with maple syrup, but if you’re really trying to earn some bonus points, try topping it with our brown sugar walnut crumble.

Walnut Porridge

Walnut Milk Porridge with Berries

Did you know you can make walnut milk? That’s right – the specialty nut milk that you buy at your local grocery store is something you can make at home! This one takes a little bit of extra time since you’ll need to soak the walnuts overnight. But once you do, the rest is as easy as prepping a smoothie in your blender.

You can use walnut milk (your new favorite) to make our rich Walnut Milk Porridge with Berries. Top with blackberries, raspberries or any other flavorful berries to garnish this Instagram-worthy dish.

Walnut Chorizo Frittata

California Walnut Chorizo Frittata

Sweet breakfasts are great, but what if your Valentine likes something on the savory side in the morning? The answer is simple: our California Walnut Chorizo Frittata! A frittata is similar to a quiche because it’s also a type of baked egg dish filled with your favorite veggies, meats, or cheeses!

This dish is packed to the brim with plant-based walnut chorizo, onions, peppers, spinach, spices, and lots of cheese, which gives your simple frittata a Southwest spin. Serve with a little hot sauce and you’re good to go!
