If you ever talk to my family about Valentine’s day parties, someone will inevitably bring up the “incident” of ‘96.
Imagine being a mom of two and starting to get calls from parents RSVPing to a Valentine’s Day party you were throwing for your daughter at your home.
A party you had zero knowledge of.
Long story short, 5-year-old Morgan handmade party invites, brought them to school, and handed them out to all of her little friends.
The perfect meal for Valentine’s Day Breakfast
That being said, it’s not a stretch to imagine that I really like Valentine’s day.
Other things I love and can’t ignore: making fun, easy food!
So when I found my silicone heart mold that I used last year to make bath bombs for no candy Valentine’s day cards, an idea popped into my head that wouldn’t leave.
A heart shaped breakfast.

This Wilton 6-Cavity Silicone Heart Mold Pan is perfect to make a Valentines day food breakfast for one or two, but you might want to grab a few or use these silicone heart shaped baking cups on a sheet tray instead.
My favorite part about this is how simple it is, Just a few ingredients and one pan thrown into the oven and you’ll have a full meal.
How cool is that? Feel free to customize to your liking. Try scrambling the eggs with some red vegetables if you’re not into whole eggs. Sub in turkey bacon. Use fresh shredded potatoes.
Heart Hash Browns
These heart hash browns are not only the perfect side to your Valentine’s Day breakfast, but they are insanely simple. Just follow these steps!
- Defrost frozen tater tots. 4 for each heart worked for me to create a nice thin hash brown.
- Smush the tater tots into your silicone heart mold. You want to press to make a solid disk worked best to ensure they didn’t break after baking.
- Bake for about 10 minutes or until golden brown in a 350 degree oven.
Heart Shaped Eggs
These are probably the easiest version.
Simply crack eggs into your mold, season with salt and pepper if desired, and then bake for 8-12 minutes (depending on how runny you would like them!) in a 350 degree oven.
You could also whisk up some eggs with some milk, salt, pepper, and red vegetables and bake those in the same mold if whole eggs aren’t for you!
Another fun option would be to make this super simple heart egg in a hole!
Making the heart bacon
This simple way to make heart-shaped bacon is easier than laying it on a baking pan because the mold helps it keep its shape. The silicone also helps with any sticking as well as simple clean up!
Cut slices of thick bacon in half. Then cut the halved down the center lengthwise, leaving connected by about .5 of an inch at the base. (If you don’t leave the space, it’s no big. You’ll just need to make sure you let the edges overlap to ‘adhere’ to one another. )
Place into your silicone molds. Place the connected part should be the bottom of your heart, and the ends of each side should wrap to create a heart shape before over lapping at the top.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 10-15 minutes. This really depends on your desired ‘doneness’, but either way keep a close eye on them from the 10 minute mark on.
This Valentine’s Day breakfast is so simple and so fun – your family is going to love it!

- 1 bag frozen tater tots defrosted
- 2 eggs
- 1 slice thick cut bacon
- strawberries optional
Defrost frozen tater tots – 4 for each heart worked for me to create a nice thin hashbrown. If you use more, you might need to make a minute or two longer.
Smush the tatertots into your silicone heart mold. I found that smushing them together and then pressing to make a solid disk worked best to ensure they didn’t break after baking.
Bake for about 10 minutes or until golden brown in a 350 degree oven.
Crack eggs into your mold, season with salt and pepper if desired.
Bake for 8-12 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
Cut slices of thick bacon in half. Then cut your halved down the center lengthwise, leaving connected by about .5 of an inch at the base.
Place into your silicone molds – the connected part should be the bottom of your heart, and the ends of each side should wrap to create a heart shape before over lapping at the top.
Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 12-15 minutes. This really depends on your desired ‘doneness’, but either way keep a close eye on them from the 10 minute mark on.
Add your bacon and hashbrowns first and bake for about 5 minutes before adding your eggs. This will ensure everything is done around the same time. Check in 5 minutes to make sure you don’t over cook anything and then about once a minute after that.
So there you have it – the perfect Valentines day food breakfast for all of the loves in your life. Make this heart-y breakfast and create a love filled morning your family won’t forget!
