Ingredients:

  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Slice Bread
  • 1 Tablespoon Butter
  • 1 Spoonful Jam

Instructions:

  1. Cut a heart-shaped hole in the center of a piece of bread and butter it lightly. TIP: Consider using a heart-shaped cookie cutter if you’d rather not do it freehand.
  2. Fry the first side in a non-stick pan or cast iron skillet until lightly browned. If there’s extra room in the pan, go ahead and toast the heart cut-out as well.
  3. Flip the bread to brown the other sides, carefully cracking an egg into the center hole.
  4. Cook until egg white is set but yolk is not yet hard.
  5. Remove from pan and spread jam on heart cut-out to taste.
