I have given savory touch to this egg and toast breakfast of all times.... with strawberry jam and Hershey's chocolate kisses on the side.
All-in-all, this is can be a fun breakfast or brunch, on any given day! If you have never tried these egg and toast, two-in-one combo before, I strongly recommend it!
It is important to toast bread, on low-heat when eggs have been cooking into the hollow hearts. Slow heat will set egg white and won't burn bread bottom. For similar reason, I also use a thick-cut bread slice instead of thin slice. Finishing the toasts in oven make sure that egg-whites are fully cooked. Just keep an eye to avoid cooking the egg yolks.
- 2 Egg(s)
- 2 White Bread (prefer thick cut slices)
- 1-2 tbsp Strawberries Jam
- 2 tsp Butter - Salted (1 teaspoon, per toast, or use oil spray)
- Salt and Black Pepper (as per taste)
- 1/2 tbsp Parsley (for garnish)
- Black Tea (or Coffee, for serving)
- 1. Pre heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- 2. Heat an oven-safe iron skillet on medium stove heat. Using cookie cutter, cut out heart-shaped center from bread slices.
- 3. Spray oil or brush 1/2 tbsp butter on skillet. Put bread slices and hear cut-outs and let'em toast on medium heat until nice and brown (3-4 minutes).
- 4. Turn the oven heat to low, flip toast and hearts and add other 1/2 teaspoon butter on side or each toast. Break one egg at-a-time in a small bowl and transfer carefully to hollow heart-shaped center of bread. Repeats for 2nd egg. Cook on low for 5 minutes or until white has just set.
- 5. Transfer the skillet to pre-heat oven and cook for 5 minutes, or until egg whites are set but yolks are still yellow. (Keep an eye, it only needs 4-5 minutes) Remove from oven. Use a wide spatula to transfer to a serving plate.
- 6. Season with salt and black pepper, and chopped parsley. Spread strawberry or raspberry jam on heart-cutouts, if you prefer. Serve hot coffee/tea or orange juice on the side. Enjoy!
Recipe doubles easily. Make 4 or Eight toast, or use any-shaped cutter as per availability and preference. If making for kids, I love making multiple shapes like hearts, stars, or animal shapes!
