Eggs Served With Love #eggmainsinminutes

April 16, 2013

I love egg on toast, it is a quick and easy breakfast. It is easy to make a small variation and make the dish look special and visually appealing. I do this by using a cookie cutter or a knife to create a shape in the bread, putting the egg inside the hole and cooking in the oven. It is easy to fit a few slices of bread on a baking tray and it is a meal children can easily make themselves.

For this creation I used knife to cut a heart shape.


The bread can also be fried but I found this can often end up with the toast being burnt on one side as the egg takes a little while to cook. My son was delighted with his breakfast, he thought it was unusual but I think he would have preferred a star rather than a heart.
