So, you want to know how to make your girlfriend breakfast in bed, but you’re a novice in the kitchen. When it comes to saying “I love you” without words, food can do wonders. It’s important to learn your way around the kitchen if you want to impress your girlfriend. Don’t worry, it’s not as hard as you think. With a little preparation, you’ll see that it’s easy to make your girlfriend breakfast in bed.

To Make Your Girlfriend Breakfast In Bed, You Will Need the Following:

  • Eggs
  • Sliced Bread
  • Fruit Juice
  • Ham
  • Non-Stick Skillet
  • Serving Tray

The Procedure:

Know What She Likes. It’s not enough to know how to make your girlfriend breakfast in bed. You’ve got to make her the breakfast that she wants. Does she like her eggs scrambled, over-easy, sunny-side? Wheat toast, or white? Is she an apple juice girl, or does she roll with the OJ? This is all stuff you need to know before you turn on the stove.

Pre-Heat Your Non-Stick Skillet. You can’t just dump your eggs into any pan. Non-stick is the way to go, and if you and your girlfriend are health-conscious, you can skip the butter and just cook the eggs straight up in the pan with no need to grease it up. Put the pan on the stove at medium heat, and give it a minute or two to warm up. Don’t let it start to smoke though, the non-stick coating shouldn’t be allowed to burn. It’s toxic.

Slice Your Ham. You can pick up the butt-end of a small ham at the grocery store, usually near the bacon. Bacon is a popular breakfast meat, but ham provides a delicious pork flavor at a fraction of the calories and fat. According to Nutrition.gov, 43 percent of bacon’s total weight is fat, while one slice of lean ham steak contains only two percent fat. Breakfast in bed shouldn’t leave your girlfriend feeling tired from eating too much fat. It should energize her, while reminding her what a great guy you are. Slice a half-inch piece while the pan is preheating.

Crack Your Eggs. The old-school “tap it on the side of the pan” is not the way to go. It’ll push bits of shell into your egg whites, and it could bust your yolk before you even get the egg into the pan. Instead, lightly tap the egg on a flat surface, and then pull it open. Hold the egg just over the skillet, and drop it in. If you’re going with scrambled eggs, whisk the eggs in a bowl prior to putting them in the skillet. Using metal utensils in the non-stick skillet is a no-no. If you’re frying the eggs, you want the eggs to star turning white as soon as they hit the pan.

Toast The Bread and Add The Ham to the Skillet. The eggs are going to be done soon. You don’t want them getting cold while you finish cooking the rest of the breakfast. Put the bread in the toaster, and put the ham in the skillet along with the eggs. The ham just needs to heat up and brown slightly since it’s pre-cooked. Flip the eggs if you’re doing over-easy or over-hard (give the eggs about thirty extra seconds for a harder yolk).

Serve. Now that you’ve made your girlfriend breakfast in bed, you’ve got to present it to her. An 18’x’12 serving tray will hold everything. Butter your toast, put the eggs on a plate, and neatly arrange everything. All that’s left now is to serve it to her. Watch her enjoy, and listen to her marvel at your handiwork.

See? Making your girlfriend breakfast in bed isn’t so hard. With the right tools and a little planning, it can be an easy way to show her how much you care.
