Heart Attack on a Plate- Toad in a Hole

2 servings
30 min

Bread is cut into the shape of hearts, dipped in egg and fried in bacon fat. The bread slices that have the hearts cut out of are then cooked in the bacon fat as well and a whole egg is fried in the center of the toast. This tasty dish is topped with jam, syrup and cinnamon sugar for a sweet and savory treat for your loved one.

Make a hole in the center of a piece of bread with a heart shaped cookie cutter.

First, you will fry the bacon in a pan. I prefer to use a cast iron skillet. Once the bacon is cooked to perfection, set it aside- but don’t drain the pan. You will use the bacon fat to fry the rest of the ingredients.

Dip the bread hearts in a mixture of egg and milk and fry them in the bacon fat. Set aside to cool and top with strawberry jelly. Finally, take the remainder of the bread slices with heart-centers removed and dip them into the egg batter. You are making a french-toast-style Toad in the Hole. Be careful not to rip the bread, as it is delicate.

Fry them on the pan and crack an egg into the center of each of them. Flip and fry until the egg is cooked. 

Assemble everything on a plate and add syrup and cinnamon sugar on top. 

Enjoy and make sure you clear the rest of your schedule for the day as you may fall into a food coma.
