Simply cuttimg out a shape from a piece of bread turns a breakfast standard into a special treat.
If your skillet is too small to fit the stencil and cut-out heart bread pieces so that they lay flat, the cut-out can be toasted in a toaster. If sunny-side up eggs are not to your liking, then once the egg is set turn over the filled stencil and cook about 1 minute more, or until the yolk is set.
Using a 3-inch heart-shaped cutter, or sharp knife, cut heart out of the center of the bread.
In a medium non-stick skillet over medium low heat melt butter. Place the bread, heart stencil and cut-out heart, in the skillet. Cook about 2 minutes, or until bread is toasted on one side.
Flip bread over and add egg to the center of the cut-out heart. Cover skillet. Cook 2-3 minutes, or until white of egg is cooked.
Salt and pepper to taste. Spread heart cut-out with jam, if desired.
