Bacon & Egg in a Heart Protein Packed Breakfast

I actually made this Bacon Egg in a Heart Protein Packed Breakfast for the first time on Cincy Lifestyle morning television show in Cincinnati Ohio. It was for Last-Minute Father’s Day Gifts. It’s a fun twist to the regular breakfast in bed. It’s guaranteed to make dad, mom or your sweetheart smile.

Everyone was so very kind to me at Cincy Lifestyle WCPO TV in Cincinnati, Ohio. From the intern who helped me from start to finish, (if I could only remember your name🤦‍♀️ ), to Clyde Gray who made me feel very comfortable, and that made being in front of the camera so much easier. I also want to thank my talented niece at Nott Your Average Signs for my beautiful t-shirt. I love it!


(Apologies for the blurry shots. I couldn’t figure out how to get stills from the Facebook video.)

You’ll need:
4 slices bacon
2 slices bread
2 tbsp. butter
2 eggs
Sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper
1 tbsp. chopped green onions

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F

Place on a baking sheet and bake until crispy, about 12-15 minutes. Keep an eye on them while they are cooking in case they start to come apart.
4. Place each crispy bacon heart over the bread and cut out a heart shape from the bread.
5. Melt butter in a large ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add the bread and toast until golden on one side.
6. Flip the bread and add bacon hearts to the center of each piece of bread.
7. Crack eggs into the centers of the bacon hearts.
