Start the day off right with breakfast or brunch! Bonus points for breakfast in bed. A Valentine’s Day breakfast makes the whole day feel special. Especially if you serve it with recipes like candied bacon!
You can serve our candied bacon recipe with just about any breakfast. It is that delicious. It’s even better if you pair it with our eggs benedict recipe and homemade hollandaise sauce!
For something a little sweeter, try our Dutch baby pancake with a side of berry compote. Yum! Oh, and don’t forget the whipped cream!
