Less Than Three Eggs


Love is in the Air! And it smells like bacon and eggs. Valentine's day is only a few days off so it's time to finalize those plans you've made for your sweetheart! This year I'm going for a <3 themed Valentine's Day. I already decided on dinner with heart-y huevos rancheros. Now it's time to decide what's for breakfast in bed!

These heart shaped pieces of delicious happiness are simple to make and you can use either real eggs(left in pic) or fake eggs(right in pic). All you need is some bread, eggs and butter! And a cookie cutter helps but if you've got mad carving skillz you can get by without one.


D'aww. Isn't that cute? I promise your sweetie will think it's cute too. This meal is doubly awesome because you can get two meals outta it. Don't discard/eat the center hearts! Stick them in a sammich bag and save them for lunchtime. I've got plans for those things!



Less Than Three Eggs

2 Servings | Total Time: 10 min | Apprentice

Mats:
  • 2 slices of Bread
  • 4 tsp Butter
  • 2 Eggs
  • Salt
  • Pepper
Craft: Warm up a small skillet with lid over medium-high heat. Cut a heart shape out of the middle of both slices of bread. Butter both sides of both pieces. Place one piece in the skillet and pour the egg into the heart. Sprinkle the egg with desired amount of salt and pepper. Let cook, covered, 1 minute. Add 1 tsp of water to the pan and quickly cover and cook for 30 sec to 1 min again. The steam will help the topside of the egg to cook a little and hold it's shape before flipping. Remove the lid and flip. Let cook another minute before removing from heat. Repeat with second slice of bread.

Strategies: One side of the toast will not look very heart shaped but don't worry, the other side will! But, if you're using fake eggs you'll want to let it cook a little longer on one side before flipping it or your eggs won't be cooked enough to hold their shape and you'll lose the heart!

LFM: Bananas, Pears, Oranges, Cranberry Juice, and Bacon or sausage!

Cost:
  • Wheat Bread $1.00
  • Eggs $1.00
Total Cost: $2.00
Cost Per Serving: $1.00
