Valentine’s Day Breakfast Idea – Eggs in a Heart-Shaped Basket

I love adding sweet touches that say “I love you” throughout the day on Valentine’s Day. I usually start by making a special breakfast with a love-inspired menu. One of our favorites? Eggs in a Heart-Shaped Basket. This is basically eggs in toast, but just kicked up a notch for this special day.

Heat griddle or pan on medium heat. Lightly spray pan and cookie cutter (both inside and outside). Place cookie cutter on griddle or pan. Gently crack open egg into cookie cutter.

Cover with a lid (this allows egg to cook via steam). Once egg is cooked (to your liking), remove cookie cutter and egg from pan using a spatula. Place the cookie cutter and egg into the toast, and gently remove the egg from the cookie cutter (you may need to use a small knife or spoon to help the egg separate from the sides of the cookie cutter).
