Why We Love This Oven-Baked Egg Heart

  • So simple to make: Unlike other heart-shaped egg recipes that call for rubber bands and chopsticks to form the shape, this version is EASY! You just need some sort of pan with a heart-shaped hole, whether that’s a muffin tin or silicone pan.
  • Healthy breakfast option: Since this recipe contains just eggs and a little salt and pepper, you know they’re a great source of healthy fats and protein to prepare you for the day. 
  • Great for special occasions: These oven-baked eggs are a great option for brunch or a special breakfast. We like to serve them on Valentine’s Day, but they’re also wonderful for Mother’s Day, birthdays, or any special occasion!

Ingredient Notes

Ingredients required to make heart shaped eggs.
  • Eggs: Stick with regular, large eggs. Feel free to use organic or pasture-raised if you prefer. 
  • Salt & pepper: A little seasoning will make the eggs taste extra delicious. Just skip the salt if serving to babies.
  • Heart-shaped muffin pan: I recommend using a silicone mold because it’s really easy to pop the eggs right out. 

How to Make Heart Eggs – Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Set the oven to 350 degrees F. Add an even coating of cooking spray to the muffin tin or use heart-shaped silicone molds.
  2. Crack open each egg directly into the muffin cup.
  3. Bake the eggs for 20-25 minutes, adjusting the time as needed depending on whether you like soft or firm eggs. Season with salt and pepper, then serve warm.

RECIPE TIPS

  • Once you know how to make a heart shaped egg, try this recipe with different molds! There are so many different types of silicone molds out there that would work for any occasion.
  • Monitor the eggs and tweak the baking time to remove the eggs at the right level of doneness.
  • For children under the age of 5, be sure that you cook the yolk so that it’s no longer runny as it’s recommended that young children avoid runny yolks.
  • For easy carrying, place the silicone mold on a baking sheet and then place the whole tray in the oven. No spills!

Recipe FAQs

How do I prevent my heart-shaped eggs from sticking to the mold or pan?

If you’re using a ceramic or metal muffin pan, it’s really important to grease it really well! Spray it a couple of times with cooking spray to make sure the eggs won’t stick.

Silicone molds are naturally nonstick, but you can also add a thin layer of cooking spray to them as well. Let the eggs rest for a few minutes after they finish baking to give them a chance to firm up. This should help prevent any problems.

Can I make heart-shaped eggs ahead of time for meal prep?

Yes! Baked eggs can be a great meal prep option, especially since you can bake so many at once, and they’re already individually sized. The main issue is reheating. If you heat them too much, the egg white can harden, and the yolk can become overcooked. I recommend microwaving them in short 30-second bursts. You can also add a little water to the plate to help them steam just slightly.

​How do you make shaped eggs?

There are several methods, but the easiest is to use a silicone mold. They’re naturally nonstick, and the eggs always come out perfectly shaped! You can also add your eggs to a muffin pan with shaped holes. This works well, but be sure to spray well with cooking spray!

Another option, if you just need 1 or 2, is to make the eggs directly in a skillet. Set a silicone or metal cookie cutter in the center of the pan, let the pan warm up over medium heat, then spray well with cooking spray. Crack the egg into the center of the cutter, add your seasoning, then cook and flip if desired. 

Storage Guidelines

  • Serve your heart shape eggs fresh from the oven. You can also keep the leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.
  • To reheat: Microwave them on low heat in 30-second bursts to avoid overcooking the egg yolk. 

Serving Suggestions

These heart-shaped eggs pair very well with other breakfast recipes, like pancakes, waffles, toast, and so much more.

Recipe Variations

  • Scramble & season: ​If your kids aren’t a fan of hard-boiled eggs or oven-baked eggs, scramble the eggs and add ham, bacon, shredded cheese, a little frozen spinach or some minced bell peppers. They’re delicious this way too!
  • Use a different mold: Instead of hearts, bake star eggs, Christmas tree eggs, flowers, or any other shape you can find. The same theory applies!
  • Substitute egg whites: Prefer egg white? Feel free to use that instead of a regular egg. You will want to add some cheese or extra seasoning for flavor.
  • Make them in a skillet: Use a heart-shaped cookie cutter to make heart shaped eggs in a frying pan! Let the pan heat up, and set the metal or silicone cookie cutter in the middle. Spray well with cooking spray, then crack the egg in the center of the cookie cutter. Sprinkle eggs with salt and pepper, then flip once the white begins to set.
