Dear Darling Hubby,

As always, I agree wholeheartedly with you that flower, chocolate and romantic dinners aren’t the only sweet ideas for Valentine’s Day. So, this year, I have a brilliant Valentine’s idea to share with you. It’s a lovely breakfast meal that is extremely easy to make, yet tasty and healthy. Also, not pricey! It’s a winning combination of my two favourites: egg and toast which are presented with novelty. Wikipedia lists many interesting and funny names for this dish: egg in toast, toad in a hole, egg in the hole, cowboy eggs etc etc. I’m not sure which one to pick. Maybe we just call it egg in a basket first and create a more fun name after that.

I know you have a hidden talent in cooking and are seriously searching for ideas on what to cook for me. How about giving this lovely breakfast a try on this Valentine’s morning? If both your son and I see this dish on our dining table, we will definitely jump in joy and give you loads of irresistible kisses and hugs. But please don’t surprise me with a messy kitchen.

To make sure you succeed in making this special toast, I have prepared a detailed instruction with tips and steps by steps photos which you can find in page 2 of this post. Don’t worry if your first attempt doesn’t turn out well. (It took me 4 attempts to perfect mine). We will still appreciate your efforts from the bottom of our heart and devour a dish that is made out of your love, care and patience.

Just to let you know, I have stored plenty of eggs and bread in the fridge for you to experiment with. So, have fun and enjoy!!

Yours forever

PS: Psssst! If you love this dish as much as I do, please pass it on to your circle of friends and colleagues (especially guys). You know what I mean, right?
