A Heart-y breakfast

A little something to show you care. All you need is a 3" heart shaped cookie cutter, some bread, butter and eggs. Serve with orange juice, and a good morning hug.

I also saw this idea in Martha Stewart Living. Here are the easy instructions:

Using a 3" heart shaped cookie cutter, remove the center and toast it.

Melt about 1 TB of butter in a small skillet, and cook bread slice until light brown.

Add another TB of butter and flip bread.

Fit cookie cutter, coated with cooking spray, in bread's cutout heart and crack an egg into the cutter.

Cover skillet and cook until egg is set. (about 2-3 minutes)

Use tongs to remove cutter.

Serve with toasted heart for dipping into yolk (I cooked my yolk longer, since I don't dip).

Thanks for stopping by!
