Okay, Valentine’s day is this weekend and while I’m over here whipping up Cupid cupcakes and Vanilla Glazed Heart Shaped Cookies for a kinder party today, I thought I’d share two of my favorite super easy and DELICIOUS breakfast ideas that are perfect for Valentine’s Day.
Now, I want y’all to keep in mind that these are two of my first video recipes EVER so, just look past that and enjoy the recipes and mine and my kids’ silliness.
First Up: Eggs in a Basket ~ Valentine’s Style
These are super easy.
- Texas Toast (or thick cut white or wheat bread)
- salt and pepper
- Butter the bread using a heart shaped cookie cutter, cut a heart into the center of your bread. Put in a skillet over medium heat until you can hear the butter start to sizzle.
- Crack your egg into the heart and let it begin to set; I prefer my yolks scrambled, so scramble it and then add your seasonings to taste.
- When the egg is set, flip and brown the other side.
Serve with fresh fruit and a mimosa for the adults and orange juice and sparkling cider for the kids (adding raspberries to these drinks is a delicious and fun twist!)
Next: French Toast Apple Bake
(This is prepared the night before)
This video was Monkey and Princess’ debut
- 3/4 C butter, melted
- 1 C brown sugar
- 1 tsp cinnamon (more, if your palate pleases)
- 2 (21 oz) cans apple pie filling
- 15 to 18 slices white bread
- 8 eggs
- 1 3/4 to 2 C milk
- 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- Syrup (for later)
- Grease/Pam/Butter a 9X13 baking dish
- Pour butter into the dish and then sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon into the dish.
- Top with the apple pie filling.
- In a mixing bowl whisk together eggs, milk and vanilla
- Layer the bread slices on top of the apple pie filling, pressing down firmly so that they get all nice and smooshed down onto the apple pie/butter mixture. You can alternate layers of bread with pouring the egg mixture so that every layer is thoroughly saturated.
Make sure that you pour SLOWLY, so as to avoid spillovers
- Cover with aluminum foil and refrigerate overnight.
- Uncover and bake at 350 for 1 hour.
- Drizzle with syrup and put in the broiler for a few minutes to caramelize.
I hope y’all have an amazing Valentine’s Weekend.
