    First answer: My eyes. Because, as per the puzzle statement, I am sleeping. And, as a matter of fact, I don’t sleep with my eyes open…!

    However, given the details, I have a counter-point: If I am sleeping, how do I know that they (the visitors) have bread, jam, honey, juice, milk… all these items with them? I can know this information only after I get up (open my eyes) and open the door and see the aforesaid items in their possession. That means, by the time have reached the last line of the puzzle, I have already opened TWO things. So, the question of “what do you open first” is already ‘dead’…! And once I know the items they have, it’s purely choice – either mine or theirs – whether to open any of these items in question or to open something else that I have at home. ‘The odds are even’…!

    The door! Since its given that its 5 am in the morning when your family arrives… You cant know its 5 am if your eyes aren’t already open. So I assume you will, at this time, first open the door
