Heart-Shaped Eggs-in-a-Hole served with Mom’s favorite jam, fresh fruit, bacon or sausage links are sure to please. Add a single flower to dress up the tray or table. This is best made right before you need to eat it.


  • 1 slice of whole-wheat bread or Mom’s favorite bread.
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 1 large egg
  • Salt, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Steps to Make It

  1. Using a heart-shaped cookie cutter, cut out the center of the bread.
  2. Heat a medium-sized frying pan to medium heat. Add the butter, and once it has melted, swirl to coat.
  3. Add the bread to the pan and let it cook on that side until golden. Using a spatula, flip the bread over.
  4. Crack the egg into the hole in the bread. Turn the heat to low, cover and cook for about 2 minutes or until the egg has been cooked through. Toast the cut-out bread piece in the pan as well and use it for dipping in the egg.
  5. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and serve immediately.
