When you wake up in the morning, a cup of coffee or tea may be what you crave for. Perhaps you reach for lemon water instead, reserving mimosas for Sunday brunches. For your next Sunday brunch, however, why not toss things up a little bit? Let’s give breakfast with wine a try.

People often think of wine as a drink you enjoy at dinner or on the couch as you catch up on Game of Thrones. If champagne can be enjoyed at any time of the day, however, who says that wine can’t be either? Wine can be the perfect pairing with your breakfast meal. It may even become your new Sunday brunch routine!

With that being said, here are a few favourite breakfast selections that go perfectly with a glass of your favourite wine. Prepare yourself for a sumptuous breakfast with a twist!

Wine with Smashed Avocado Toast

Who doesn’t love kicking off the day with smashed avocado toast? Cut yourself a thick slice of crusty bread and cover it with smashed avocado. Drizzle it with EVO (extra-virgin olive oil) before you sprinkle some cumin, salt, and red pepper flakes on top. Don’t forget the fresh green herbs! Then, complete the dish with a poached egg.

Although smashed avocado toast is delicious on its own, the ensemble also goes perfectly with good wine. Not only does wine play up the green theme entirely, but it also adds the appropriate acidity. There you have it, a perfect breakfast!

Wine with Chicken & Waffles

Next, on the list of perfect breakfast wine pairings are a classic - chicken and waffles! Who would say no to some tasty southern fried chicken? While everybody loves chicken, it tastes ten times better when enjoyed along with an exceptional kind of waffle. Who knew that waffles, which are ordinarily eaten sweet, could be delicious savoury too? Add an extra dollop of butter on top if you aren’t too concerned about your waistline!

Rather than downing the meal with sweet tea, opt for some delicious wine instead. Chilled red wines have the right amount of tannins to help scrape the fat from your tongue.

Wine with French Toast & Bacon

Another incredible breakfast treat begins with a thick cut of brioche complemented with generously-sized pieces of bacon. Add a fried egg to finish it off. Who can resist some wholesome French toast with bacon for breakfast? There’s no doubt that this is a tasty treat.

For this breakfast combo, a white grape wine will be best. The wine amps up the taste of the bacon, thus counteracting the syrup on the French toast. It will serve as a palate cleanser, thanks to its high acidity.

Wine with Biscuits & Gravy

Last on the breakfast list is another southern favourite - biscuits and gravy. Those hot, fluffy biscuits should be coated with thick, gooey, salty gravy. This is absolutely a quintessential greasy spoon breakfast!

That given, you might always end up for something wet to wash it down. That is where the wine is ideal for quenching your thirst. A red also has a touch of tannin and moderate acidity that will tone down the taste and make sure that you feel satisfied by the end of the meal.
