We are real lucky around here to have Kev be able to come home for lunch everyday. Yesterday, since it was Valentine’s Day I decided to cook a little “I Love You” brunch. I’ve seen this idea before and thought it was so cute, so I cooked an egg in a heart shaped cut out in some sourdough bread. Then I whipped up some honey-cinnamon cream cheese and made some delicious grapefruit tea. Mmmm! This would be a perfect breakfast for any special morning, not just Valentine’s Day.
EGG IN A HOLE:
Salt and Pepper
1.Cut a heart shape out from the center of the bread.
2. Melt a small about of butter in skillet over medium heat. Place the slice of bread in skillet and toast lightly.
3. Crack the egg into the hole and season with salt and pepper. Cook until golden brown.
4. Flip the egg, season with salt and pepper. Cook another 2 minutes for a runny yolk, or little longer for a set egg.
WARM GRAPEFRUIT TEA: (recipe from here)
2 cups freshly squeezed red grapefruit juice
2 tablespoons honey
1 cinnamon stick
1/2 teaspoon whole allspice berries
1. In a medium pot, add all ingredients and 1/4 cup water. Bring to a boil over medium heat; strain into a cup and serve.
HONEY-CINNAMON CREAM CHEESE:
8 oz. Cream Cheese
2 Tbsp. of Honey
1/4 tsp. of cinnamon
Whip all together and serve on everything! haha. It is very, very yummy.
My dad makes this and calls it “eggy bread”! It’s delish, esp with syrup! Looks like a wonderful breakfast!
Um, can I come over next time? Hehe. This looks soooo good! I’ll have to try that cream cheese recipe.
Love the fresh take on the egg in a hole!! Looks sooo good!
those gobstopper hearts are our favorite!!! they are quite hard to find around here. i only got one bag this year 🙂
wow this looks so delicious!!
That looks delicious!
yummmm egg in a hole is one of my all time favorite things to eat! whenever we have a day off together (which is rare) my husband makes it for me!
Sounds yummy! Cooking brunch with my boyfriend is one of my favorite things – Doesn’t happen very often because we almost never have days off together, but it’s a real treat when we do! The grapefruit tea sounds delicious – Must try!
Love, love, love!!!

This looks so yummy|! Unfortunately my other half agrees and think I’m the one in charge of making it x
This looks so delicious, a feast for the eyes and mouth! The tea looks so cool, I may have to try that one for myself. Hope you had a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
I call this a “hole in one!” Love the “heart” idea. Too cute. xo.
We call this chicken in a biscuit at my house. Growing up my mom would always make this kind of egg for me. It really is my absolute favorite way to eat an egg. I love the heart shape of this in your picture though. I bet Kev loved it.
This looks delicious! So making it!
my dad use to always make those for me and my sister, but he called them one eyes! i always loved getting to eat the middle of the bread that was cut out. so fun!
