Heart Shaped French Toast

Heart Shaped French Toast – a cute Valentine’s food idea for kids.

I love making cute holiday-themed treats for my daycare hooligans!  Here’s a really cute food idea for Valentine’s Day.  Heart shaped French Toast with cinnamon sugar.  I’ve added a few cute heart-shaped sides to this lunch as well.

For Valentine’s Day, I like to make our lunch and snacks special for the hooligans.  You can click here to see some ideas we’ve used in the past.

Making French Toast in kid-friendly shapes is such an easy way to add a bit of fun to meal-time, or to make a themed meal extra-special.  Click to see our Mitten French Toast.  I made that last year for the hooligans on a very blustery winter day.

How to make our Valentines French Toast:

Cookie cutter and bread slices to make heart shaped french toast.

  1. Use a cookie cutter to cut the hearts from slices of whole wheat bread.  I was just able to get 3 hearts out of each slice.
  2. Whisk together 2 eggs and about 2 tbsp of milk.
  3. Melt a bit of butter in the frying pan until you hear it sizzling.
  4. Dip each heart into the egg/milk mixture, and fry over medium heat, flipping them once, until they’re golden brown.
  5. Transfer them to a plate, and top with cinnamon-sugar and syrup.

To make lunch a little more festive, I served ham and strawberry hearts on the side.
