Gracious Girl’s Guide to Valentine’s Day: Breakfast for Dinner

by Mindy Lockard on February 8, 2011

Valentine’s for our family is about spending time together.  Every other year the Mr. and I go out.  Because last year we went to see Swan Lake, not to be confused with…


This year, we will be staying in and relying on our favorite girlie duo for help.  When we have family V-Day dinners, we like to have a little help with the menu.

This year, it’s breakfast for dinner and this is what we’re thinking…

We’ll get all of the girls involved, because we wouldn’t want any chick drama.


Take some challah bread, cut into thick slices.


with a cookie cutter, cut out the center and butter both sides, and put it on the grill.


crack an egg into the heart


and fry it up. When the egg white turns white, give the toast a little flip and cook the other side.


Delicious when served with thick apple wood smoked bacon and one of our favorites strawberry cut hearts, Greek yogurt and granola.


This is a perfect dinner, and even better when served to your special someone as breakfast in bed.

LOVE this! Our tradition is Valentine’s Breakfast OUT… it started the first year we were dating when Brian was heading out of town and we’ve loved doing it ever since — and with kids, it means we can do something as a family for dinner! No need for reservations, fancy (overpriced) menus or babysitters who are bitter that they are missing out on time with their sweetie! Maybe we will have to try breakfast for dinner this year, too!

What a great story Katherine! I think these little traditions are what families are made of! I hope you and your family have a great Valentine’s Day!

I love this– eggs in a heart! I was thinking of heart shaped french toast, but I think I’ll try this instead for my boys! xoxo!
