It’s almost Valentine’s Day, and I have to say I love Valentine’s Day. It has nothing to do with having a sweetheart or not, I love the colors, the treats, and the creativity. What better way to celebrate Valentine’s Day then with making a Valentine’s Day breakfast?
Even better, this breakfast takes just about 20 minutes to prepare, so it is fast enough to fix for the kids before heading out the door to work or school!
Basically this breakfast is all about cooking eggs in a heart shaped muffin tin. I picked up a heart shaped muffin tin at Target last Valentine’s Day in their $1 section. It has since proved to be very useful, I use it on a regular basis!
The first time I saw the idea for baking an egg was on this article on eHow, yes they have just about everything! Many people are aware of this concept and many are not, it’s so simple though I could not imagine doing it any other way!
If you wanted to you could also use a few pieces of bread with cheese and make an egg sandwich.
Note: If you are gluten free, simply prepare these eggs with your favorite gluten free bread recipe. I enjoy using my bread machine for a variety of gluten free breads.
My husband thought these were the most wonderful breakfast, I think I’ll be using this same concept for many breakfast to come. It’s very easy to find seasonal cupcake tins, be sure and pick them up when you see them and make some festive meals!
