Annabel Karmel's hearty breakfast
  • Serves: 1
  • Prep: 5mins
  • Cook: 4mins

This heart-shaped egg would make a fun surprise breakfast for mum or dad and only takes a few minutes to prepare. 


  • 1 thick slice white bread
  • 15g unsalted butter plus an extra knob
  • 1 large British Lion egg
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Cut a hole in the centre of the bread using a heart-shaped cookie cutter about 8 cm (3 “) wide at its widest point.
  2. Melt 15g of butter in a small frying pan and sauté the bread on one side until golden. Turn the bread over, melt the extra pat of butter in the heart-shaped cut out, break the egg into it, and season lightly. Cook covered for about 2 minutes until the egg is cooked to mum’s or dad’s liking.
  3. You can also dip the cut out heart in a little egg and sauté that too, to make French toast.
