So let’s dish up some Eggs in Toast for mom with a special heart cut-out to make her feel especially loved.  This is a super easy breakfast recipe for the kids to help out with.

Here’s all you will need:

1. Two eggs
2. Two slices of bread
3. A little butter or margarine
4. A heart-shaped cookie cutter
5. A skillet and spatula for cooking
6. A little salt and pepper

First, let the kids help with the cookie cutter and cut one heart shape out of the center of each piece of bread.

Heat a little bit of butter in a non-stick skillet until melted; place one slice of bread (with heart shape cut out) and the heart shaped piece of bread into the skillet over medium-high heat until lightly browned on one side (about 3 minutes).

Let older kids help gently flip over the slice of bread and the heart shaped bread.  Then crack open one egg and pour it into the heart-shaped opening in the slice of bread.  Sprinkle egg with a little salt/pepper, as desired.

Allow to cook about 2-3 more minutes until other side of bread is lightly browned and egg is mostly cooked through; gently flip bread over to allow egg to finish cooking through. Remove to plate and keep warm.

Repeat with the other slice of bread and egg.  While the cooking is being done, the kids can get the serving tray and decorations ready to go.

Now, serve the heart shaped Egg in Toast to mom on a pretty plate and a serving tray with some fresh fruit, a candle or a small flower, a sweet card from the kids, and a pretty napkin.  (Or, as close to any or all of that as you can come.)

Whether serving it to her in bed or at the kitchen table, she will feel super special and loved to start out her Mother’s Day.  (But remember to have the kids help clean up the kitchen afterwards, too – right?  No need to stress mom out after starting her day with such a nice treat!)
