20 Tasty Ideas for a Lovely Valentine’s Day Breakfast

Since Valentine’s Day is sneaking up on us, I want you to be prepared to start the celebration off on the right foot, which is why I’ve gathered together a whole host (20 to be exact) of Valentine’s Day breakfast ideas and recipes. You like donuts? Try the pink ones. Not a big breakfast eater? Heart-shaped granola bars for you! Are you more traditional? Eggs-in-a-hole (heart-shaped of course) should do the trick. See? There’s a little something for everyone, from the sweet, to the savory, to the lighter fare.

Dress your Valentine’s Day breakfast table with something sweet and tasty for the people you love most, find all the photos and links in the gallery below! Happy Valentine’s Day, friends!
