#2. Heart-Shaped Bacon

Why stop at eggs when you can make your whole breakfast heart-shaped? Cut bacon slices in half and form them into hearts, then bake in the oven so they keep their shape. Instructions can be found on The Paper Mama.

#3. Heart-Shaped Egg in the Basket

Turn a regular breakfast sandwich into a festive Valentine's Day breakfast by cutting a heart out of one piece of bread and cooking an egg in the middle. You can find the full instructions on Reclaiming Provincial. For a more gourmet Downton Abbey-style twist, try out truffled eggs on toast, and just shape the hole as a heart.

#4. Heart-Shaped Pancakes

Make heart-shaped pancakes by putting a cookie cutter in the skillet before pouring in your batter. If you don't have a cookie cutter, you can use a squeeze bottle or pastry bag to "draw" the outline of a heart in batter and fill it in.

#5. Heart-Shaped Grilled Cheese

Use cookie cutters or a knife to cut heart shapes out of your sandwich bread. Assemble and cook your grilled cheese like usual and serve with tomato soup on the side for a quick Valentine's Day lunch.

#7. Heart-Shaped Pizza

Shape your favorite pizza dough into a heart by forming a circle and cutting a triangle out of the top, then attaching it at the bottom to make the tip of the heart. If you have a small enough cookie cutter, you can go all-out with heart-shaped pepperonis, too.
