Egg in a Heart-Shaped Hole


As I walked in, the house smelled like butter. This morning I met my boyfriend for breakfast at his home, and he was cooking away when I got there. Today marks eight months since we connected, and seven months since we started officially dating! He cooked me an egg for breakfast… a special egg…it was cooked in toast in a heart-shaped hole:


I felt so loved!

Here’s how to make Egg in a Heart Hole for your loved ones:

You will need per person:

1 egg

1 piece of bread (whatever kind they like for toast)

1/4 tsp. butter

Salt and pepper

Cut the middle out of the piece of bread: You can make a heart, or a circle, or be creative! It should be big enough to hold an egg.

Over medium heat, melt the butter in a skillet, and place your bread in it. It you like darker toast, let the bread toast for a minute or two before adding the egg. Place the uncooked egg into the hole in the middle of the bread, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and cook for 2-3 minutes until the egg starts being cooked. Flip and cook until the egg is as soft or firm to your liking.

Serve immediately amid smiles and hugs!

Hello Friends, A curious, kind, practical, and energetic writer, wife, mother, and teacher is one way to describe me. I enjoy thinking about transitions--in schools, churches, families, relationships, and even countries. I'm passionate about learning, and I love working with people. Stop by often to see which kind of transition I'm thinking about, and I would appreciate hearing your thoughts. Peace! ~Mary Hope
