So this Valentine's Day get a little creative when cooking up your eggs and make the ones you love a Heart Shaped Egg Breakfast.
If you are wondering how the heck you are going to do that, not to worry I am going to share with you how right here. It is not as hard as you think and there are many different methods of making your Eggs into a Heart Shape.
The other great part is that no mater how your loved ones like their eggs cooked, whether it be Hard Boiled Eggs, Fried Eggs, Scrambled Eggs or Poached Eggs, there is a method for each of them.
Have you ever turned your Eggs into Hearts?
Heart Shaped Hard Boiled Eggs
So how do you turn a Hard Boiled Egg into a Heart? It is not as hard as you think. A very easy way to do it is by using a Heart Shaped Egg Mold. These are really easy and fun to use. All you have to do is boil your eggs and then place inside of the of the mold snap it closed, stick in the fridge and let it set. When you open the mold your hard boiled egg will be in the shape of a Heart.
I have used these molds before and you can see my step by step tutorial here:
Bento Egg Molds
I also came across this other way to turn your hard boiled eggs into Hearts using items you may already have in your home (pictured to the right).
Check out the full tutorial here:
Heart Shaped Fried Eggs
Whether your loved ones like their Fried Eggs sunny side up or over easy you can still serve them up shaped like a Heart. To create fried eggs into heart shapes you will need to use a Heart Ring or a Frying Pan with a Heart Cavity.
Either one of these tools make it easy. All you do is crack your egg right into the Mold or Heart Shaped Frying Pan and your Egg will form the shape of a Heart. If you need to make your fried eggs over easy just wait for the egg to set up and then give it a quick flip. If you are cooking up breakfast for a hungry bunch then double the love and put two eggs into one mold for double the love and double the yolk.
Another fun idea that I do all the time for my kids is what I call "Eggs in a Hole". This is when you take a slice of bread and cut out the middle, in this case you would cut out the middle of the bread using a Heart Shaped Cookie Cutter. Set aside the piece that you cut into a Heart. Then place the slice with the Heart cut out into a buttered frying pan.
Next just crack your egg directly into the cut out of the heart. Again if they like their fried egg over easy wait till it sets up and give it a flip. Once that cooks take your Heart Shaped piece of bread you cut out and toss it in the pan with some butter to toast up a bit and serve it on the side for dipping in the yolk.

Heart Shaped Scrambled Eggs
You can create a Scrambled Egg Heart using the Heart Ring or Heart Frying Pan as talked about above.
Prepare and scramble your Eggs and then just pour them into the mold or pan. Now you will not have loose scrambled eggs, but more of an omelet type egg.
Doesn't that look yummy?
Heart Shaped Poached Eggs
To make Heart Shaped Poached Eggs the best way is to use a Heart Egg Poacher. This just makes it really simple and easy. You can also use one of the Heart Egg Rings, but that may a be a bit more challenging to use when poaching.
To use the Heart Egg Poacher you just sit it in a frying pan within a water bath. Crack your egg into the heart cavity and cook to your desired taste. Easy Peasy !!
