Huevo Heart

Here's a fun breakfast idea for Valentine's weekend! These will work if you like sunny side up OR over easy eggs. I finished this one under the broiler to get the perfect egg for me.

This is a great breakfast to get the kids involved. They can help cut out the heart shapes in the tortillas and also gently pour the eggs into the cut out space to cook.

This recipe will make one serving.  Multiply as needed.  

2 corn or flour tortillas
3 T. butter, divided
1 egg
salsa and/or shredded cheese

In a medium skillet, melt 1 T. of the butter over medium heat. Using a heart shaped cookie cutter, carefully place the cutter in the middle of the tortillas and press through the tortillas. Place the cut out hearts into the skillet and let them brown for 15 - 20 seconds, turn over and let the other side brown. Remove from skillet and set aside.

Melt another tablespoon of butter in the skillet and place one tortilla at a time into the skillet and let brown for 45 seconds or so on each side. When both tortillas have browned, stack them on top of each other in the skillet.

Crack the egg into a small bowl and carefully pour the egg into the heart shaped cut out. Lightly salt and pepper the egg. Let the egg cook until the white is cooked through and the yolk is cooked to your desired doneness. If you want an over easy egg, carefully slide a spatula under the tortilla stack and flip.


You can place the OVEN SAFE skillet under the broiler to finish cooking the yolk.

Garnish with thick and chunky salsa and/or shredded cheese.  And maybe some sour cream.  How about some diced jalapenos........You get the idea.
