Valentines Breakfast

Remember this post about these eggs:



That requires you to have one of these:

Well if you don't, I found another way for you to have heart shaped eggs for breakfast!! And toast too!

Polka Dot Apron posted this:


You cut a heart out of a thick piece of bread using a cookie cutter. Remove the center.
Melt butter in a small skillet over medium heat and place the bread slice in skillet. Cook until one side is lightly brown, the add a little more butter and flip the bread over and put the cookie cutter, coated with cooking spray, in the cutout heart. Crack an egg into the cutter. Cover skillet, and cook until egg is set, 2 to 3 minutes. Use tongs to remove cutter. Toast the heart that you cut out at the beginning and serve.

One eyed jacks is what we call those. I love the idea to do them as hearts. Because I don't have one of those cool things for the griddles.

Thank you!

I LOVE this. In fact I saw it in my Martha Stewart mag last night and am dying to try it out! Who knew eggs and toast could be so cute?

This is almost exactly what we made for breakfast at girl scout camp when I was a little girl, minus the heart cookie cutter! We just used our fingers to tear a round hole of bread out of the center, then filled it with egg and fried it in a pan over the fire. It's a cute idea to use a cookie cutter and you could really use the idea for any shape any time of the year!
