Heart of St. Valentine Egg Toast

..."Man looks at how someone appears on the outside.  But I look at what is in the heart."
~1 Sam. 16:7~

It works!
We have been SO excited about trying this idea that we found in one of our children cookbooks.  We finally gave it a whirl this morning and it works!  
This was a fun idea for St. Valentine's Day and the heart would be perfect for the Sacred Heart of Jesus or Immaculate Heart of Mary feast days.

Pick your cookie cutter and imagine the FUN while having a healthy breakfast...We want to try a clover for St. Patrick's Day!  You could also use anything that might fit an egg...Maybe a flower for St. Therese, a fleur de lis for Marian feast days, Mardis Gras, etc., etc!  The best part...It's a "piece of cake" toast!

Larger size whole wheat bread
Cooking spray
Cookie cutter of choice

Step 1.

Spray a cookie sheet generously with non-stick cooking spray.  Lay out your toast and spread a light coat of margarine across the toast.  Use a cookie cutter to cut out the shape of your choice. 
Note:  If you would like your toast a little extra crispy, try toasting it lightly prior to this step! 

Step 2.
Crack the egg into a shallow saucer first!
Then slide the egg over into the hole from the saucer...Ours just slid right in place so easily!

Step 3.
Bake for 7 minutes at 400 degrees for slightly runny...Our family's favorite.  Bake A little longer if you like your eggs with no runny yoke.  Scoop them off the cookie sheet with a spatula, directly on to your plate.  Do not attempt to flip them over.
They turned out so cute and fun!
(And they didn't stick a bit:)
Share the love!
"Today it is your turn and my turn to love one another as Jesus loved us.  Do not be afraid to say yes to Jesus."~(Blessed) Mother Teresa of Calcutta~

A little side note...If you are looking for an easy way to remember the love that Jesus first had for us, you can easily convert plain heart cookies into Sacred Hearts with a little brown icing.


  1. hmmm...think this would work for scrambled style eggs too? Most of the kids like theirs scrambled. I may just have to give this a try! Thanks!

  2. quick and yummy! my kids used to like to top their egg toast with cheese and crumbled bacon.

    happymomonline - the scrambled eggs have not worked in my experience. they tend not to bind to the toast. however, i pierce my yoke before baking and that does the trick for my kids who prefer scrambled eggs.

  3. I didn't realize these could be baked... we've done them on a griddle or in a frying pan before. Using a round biscuit cutter for the hole, I've seen them called Eggs in a Basket or Eggs in the Hole. Yum! And fun to use different shaped cookie cutters!
