Fast, Easy Valentine Hearts For Breakfast or Anytime
Posted by infinitygoods on February 11, 2008
This Valentine’s Day falls on a weekday so a special breakfast for your family might seem impossible, but not if you follow these quick and easy tips. Armed with my heart shaped cookie cutters of varying sizes I can show my heartfelt sentiments with morning canapes which are some of the easiest and fastest things you can possibly make.
These ideas can also be easily adapted into sandwiches for the lunch boxes (children LOVE them) or appetizers for your romantic dinner for two or even include all your children to celebrate your family’s love.
Here’s just a sampling of the variations you can make in little more time than it takes for your toaster to pop up.
Cut your favorite brand of store-bought waffles, English muffins or sliced bread with your heart-shaped cookie cutters. Toast, and add your favorite savory or sweet toppings. If your topping is not spreadable, use your cookie cutters again!
- Jelly/Jam especially red ones to keep with the Valentine theme such as strawberry, cherry, or plum;
- Sugar and cinnamon;
- Lemon curd;
- Peanut butter or peanut butter and jelly;
- Apple sauce or apple butter;
- Cream cheese;
- Whipped cream and red sugar sprinkles;
- Nuttela (chocolate and hazelnut spread);
- Or to be totally decadent, an ice cream Sunday with a heart waffle or two on the side.
- Pate or braunschweiger;
- Canadian bacon;
- Shredded or sliced cheese; (shredded will melt faster in your toaster over)
- Minced sun-dried tomatoes;
- Pastrami or any other deli meats;
- Egg (such as scrambled or over easy, etc.)
- Roasted bell peppers (they come right out of a jar these days);
- Herb cheese spread such as Rondele or Alouette;
- Lox (smoked salmon);
- Marinated mushrooms;
- Marinated artichoke hearts.
I’m sure I missed lots of great toppings, so let us know your great ideas too.
And for the scraps left over from those heart cutouts, some very lucky dogs will love you, or you can save them for your next turkey stuffing.
