Easy Valentines day french toast hearts

02/07/2017

alt="easy valentines day breakfast idea" Way back in primary school when I was much younger, we used to spend the days before saint valentine’s day (that was how we called it) cutting up little hearts and making cardboard cards for our parents and classmates. I remember enjoying those moments, especially the little cupcakes we got after we finished our “craft sessions”. What I didn’t enjoy, was how much glue I would get on everything, my uniform, my arms, sometimes even my hair. My cards weren’t pretty either, I never cut out the hearts properly and when I colored my drawings, I kept coloring outside the lines with my crayon..it was really terrible.

Now however, having realized how terrible I am at crafts, I just buy my friends a card and maybe bake some cookies if I’m feeling up to it.

alt="easy valentines day breakfast idea"A few weeks ago, I was perusing pinterest when I came across this french toast churros bites recipe. I mean it’s so simple and obvious I thought with the amount of experiments I like to do, how have I never thought of this? It’s the same classic recipe for french toasts, the only difference being the bread is cut into little heart shapes and then tossed in brown sugar and cinnamon after cooking.

I thought how cute would it be to make this for valentines day. You can cut the hearts out the night before to save time in the morning, and if you have kids, even better, I’m sure they would love to help with the hearts.

If you don’t care for them that much, you can always ask me to make them my little cardboard cards 😉


Some helpful tips:

  • Use a cookie cutter to cut out the heart shapes, I find that the plain stainless steel ones work best.
  • Use day old bread, it will soak up just the right amount of egg and milk mixture, and fry well without losing its shape.

Instructions
  1. Use a small heart shaped cookie cutter to cut out the hearts. Stale bread is recommended because it will soak up more egg mixture without falling apart. If the bread is not stale the hearts will lose their shape.
  2. Beat the egg with milk, vanilla and salt, set aside.
  3. Combine cinnamon and brown sugar and set aside.
  4. In a pan over medium-high heat melt the butter, reduce the heat to medium-low.
  5. Dip each heart in egg mixture to coat both sides, but don’t let it soak too much liquid or they will lose their shape and shake off excess egg mixture.
  6. Place the bread in the pan and fry about 45 seconds per side.
  7. Transfer the hearts in cinnamon-brown sugar mixture to coat well and serve immediately
