Egg in a Heart | Eating Bird Food

February is a fun month around these parts because we have lots to celebrate.

The festivities started yesterday for Isaac’s 28th birthday! Cupcakes were involved.

I was going to go all out and make these Ginger Cupcakes but time got away from me and I ended up grabbing a box of cake mix from the store at 8:30PM on Tuesday night. I felt guilty but at least it was an organic mix, right?

I made up for using boxed mix for the cupcakes by waking up early to make Isaac’s favorite breakfast – Egg in a Hole! I’d actually never had this little gem before meeting Isaac (I guess my Dad taught me the microwave egg in a bowl thing instead), however it’s such a great idea. “Grilled” bread with a cooked egg in the middle! Typically the hole in the middle of the bread is a circle that you cut out with a shot glass/round cookie cutter but I decided to make a heart version.

Egg in a Heart This breakfast is perfect for birthdays, anniversaries or Valentine’s Day!

1 teaspoon butter
1 slice bread
1 egg


Using a heart-shaped cookie cutter or a knife, cut a heart shape out of the center of the bread.
In a medium non-stick skillet over medium low heat melt butter. Place both pieces of the bread (heart stencil and cut-out heart) in the skillet. Cook about 2 minutes, or until bread is toasted on one side.
Flip both pieces of bread over and add the egg to the center of the cut-out heart. Cook 2-3 minutes, or until white of egg is cooked, flip bread with egg if needed.
Salt and pepper to taste. Spread heart cut-out with jam or apple butter, if…
