Take the stress out of Valentine’s Day by creating this simple heart-shaped toad in a hole recipe that’s sure to impress your sweetheart.
1 thick, hearty slice, bread of choice
1/2 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 large eggs
12” large nonstick pan
2½–3 -inch heart-shaped cookie cutter
1. Using a heart cookie cutter, cut out centers from bread slice, reserving heart cut-out.
2. Heat 1/2 tablespoon butter in a large nonstick pan over medium-low heat. When oil is shimmering, add bread and toast until light golden, 3–4 minutes. Carefully crack 1 egg into center of bread slice and cover pan. Cook until whites are set and yolks are still runny, another 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
3. Enjoy your Valentine’s Day toad-in-a-hole! Use reserved heart cut-out to break up the yolk if that’s your kind of thing.
