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.


Eggs in a Heart-Shaped Basket

What You’ll Need:

  • Eggs
  • Bread, toasted
  • Heart-shaped cookie cutter (heat resistant; silicone or metal)
  • Cooking Spray

Directions: Using cookie cutter, cut out heart from center of toast.



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).





  1. I just made eggs in a basket. I make mine slightly different. I cut my toast out with the heart shaped cutter, oiled the pan, and put both the heart and the cut out bread in the pan, and cracked the egg right away inside the heart hole. Then when it’s cooked on the one side, I flipped it. It turned out pretty good. My husband was a little critical because I used coconut oil instead of butter. I thought it was a little healthier, and you couldn’t taste a coconut taste.

  2. This is such an adorable idea, I am going to make these for my boys this weekend. So simple and cute, thanks for sharing!

  3. Wow, this looks great, we are going to give it a try, since it doesn’t look that hard!
    It looks fun to with the family

    thanks for sharing!


  4. I’ve never tried this before but will have to make it sometime soon. It’s cute, and I think my family would eat it up.
