love waking up in the morning

Mornings are rough for everyone, especially Mondays!
So give your morning some extra love with this super simple twist on breakfast that is sure to put a smile on your face.

Start with a little butter on your pan at a medium heat. I prefer the “I can’t believe it’s not butter” butter as a health conscious choice. Put as much as you want to not only add flavour but to avoid sticky-ness to the pan.

Next, grab a piece of bread. I personally love a grainy loaf. I also chose the end piece. Not only is it a great way to avoid wasting it, it holds up nicely when the egg is added and doesn’t get soggy.

Then choose your cookie-cutter. I opted for a heart, but feel free to pick whatever your heart desires. Just make sure it doesn’t hit too close to the edge of the bread before you commit!

Place the bread face down like pictures above, as to slightly toast the side in which the egg will be put.

Crack the egg into the shape left by the cookie-cutter.

Lately I’ve been a fan of slightly cracking the yolk of a sunny-side up egg because I like to spread the taste of yolk rather than keep it so condensed in one area. But choose what style delights your tastebuds, sunny-side and cracked yolk or plain whites being the best suited for this breakfast.

If you choose cracked yolk or whites, be sure to flip the toast and let it sit on the opposite side for a few beats, this will allow for the egg to cook more throughly.
If you like your eggs sunny-side up but medium done, place a medium pot lid with a tsp of water over top the toast, this will effectively cook the egg without breaking the yolk.

Vola! Enjoy the best start to your morning and smile the rest of the day!
