There is actually a trick to this. It is easy, but there is a trick. What you have to do, once you’ve cut out the middle of the bread, is place the bread directly onto a hot griddle of butter and then pour most of the egg white into the heart shape to let the egg set for a few seconds before pouring the yolk in.
Let it cook for a couple minutes, sunny side up, throw the whole thing in the oven at 425 for another 5 – 10 minutes until you get a nice creamy yolk. If you like it runny, cook it less. I recommend creamy for this recipe. You can gently prod the yolk with a fork to see if it has any give. Just because it is bright yellow doesn’t mean it is runny, so be careful not to overcook it.
Once you take it out of the oven, butter the edges of the toast, serve it in bed to your sweetheart with a nice glass of orange juice and some fresh strawberries, and you’ll be the Valentine of the universe. It will be sooo scrumptious!
This picture actually shows the egg white overflowing a bit too much. You want to try and “stay in the lines” as it were.
The fun part is, you can take the little heart cut-outs and toast them up and lather them in butter for a yummy little treat.
- 2 pieces of bread
- Heart-shaped cookie cutter
- 2 eggs
- Preheat the oven to "broil."
- Cut out a heart shape in the middle of the bread.
- Place the bread on a greased, hot griddle and pour the egg white into the center first, letting it set for a few seconds before you pour in the yolk.
- Let this cook on medium to medium high for about 4 minutes until the clear part of the egg is entirely white.
- Carefully place the egg-toast in the oven on a cookie sheet for about 8 minutes, or until the yolk is creamy.
- Season to taste, and serve with orange juice and fresh strawberries.
