Heart Breakfast Ideas

for Valentine's Day Breakfast


While working on this year’s Valentine’s Day Brunch post {if you missed all of the amazing Valentine’s Day breakfast content from last year – here – I highly recommend you check it out!!}, I came across some super fun ideas that incorporate hearts into your Valentine’s Day Breakfast menu. From cinnamon rolls, which are a highly coveted breakfast item in our house, to a healthier option of Valentines-themed Rocky Mountain Toast or “Egg in a Heart” – which I shaped with a heart cookie cutter, and lastly, a cute twist on a Yogurt Parfait. Here are my ideas that I taste-tested and approved and hope will inspire you to get creative in the kitchen on Valentine’s Day morning!!


Heart Cinnamon Rolls


Heart Cinnamon Rolls

Ingredients:

  • 1 can Pillsbury refrigerated flaky cinnamon rolls with icing

Directions:

Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 9-inch round cake pan with cooking spray.

Carefully unwind each roll into long strip of dough, leaving the end that is “coiled” as is. Take the opposite end, and coil, making two equal coils. Pull the middle down to make a point, forming a heart shape; pinch the point. Place in pan, points toward center. (Watch video here.)

(Expert Mom Tip: If you bought the round rolls by accident, simply roll them out into snakes and shape into hearts on your own!)

Bake 13 to 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 5 minutes before removing to cooling rack. Spread frosting over top.


Egg in a Heart


Egg in a Heart

Ingredients:

Directions:

Take your heart cookie cutter and trace a heart with a knife in the center of your toast and remove the heart center. Place to the side.

Heat a skillet over medium-low heat and melt in a tablespoon of butter. When the butter is all spread out, place the slice of bread in the skillet, once toasted, flip. Next crack an egg straight into the center of the heart. Cook until the egg sets a bit on the bottom, 30 to 45 seconds. Sprinkle the egg with salt and pepper.

(Expert Mom Tip: If your egg spreads too much, try cheating the system. Instead of frying your egg inside the toast, fry your egg in a small pan, use your cookie cutter to trace the cooked egg and then place inside the toast. You will notice below that the egg on the left I traced and the egg on the right I cooked inside the toast. Both are cute but one is definitely more precise!!)


Valentine’s Parfait


Valentine’s Parfait

Ingredients:

  • Vanilla yogurt
  • Granola
  • Conversation Heart Candy
  • Bowls (ideally pink) for serving – I have some suggestions to shop at the end of the post!

Directions:

Serve a half a cup of vanilla yogurt, top with granola, sprinkle hearts on top.

(Expert Mom Tip: If you don’t have Conversation Heart candies, use Lucky Charms cereal!).
