Heart-Shaped Egg in the Hole

Here's a present you know Mom will love -- breakfast in bed with a surprise, a heart-shaped egg in the hole.  Serve it with a flavored bacon from one of our meat vendors and jam from Mema’s.  Shop the Market for an artisan bread to make it extra special for your extra special Mom.

Directions:

  1. Using a cookie cutter or a knife, cut out a small heart shape from the center of a thick slice of bread. Spread each side of bread with butter.  Make it an herb butter by adding fresh herbs or a spice blend from Wild Tree.
  2. Heat skillet over medium heat. Saute bread until golden, 2 to 3 minutes. Lower heat, and gently flip toast.
  3. Break an egg into heart-shaped hole. Cover, and cook until egg white turns opaque, about 5 minutes.
  4. Transfer to a plate along with the heart-shaped piece of cutout bread, perfect for dipping into yolk.
