NOTE: We used an egg wash and sugar on top of our scones but the sugar gave it a glaze that changed the look of the chocolate. If you wish to top them perhaps try an egg wash then chocolate sprinkles.

One of my childhood memories was my Grandmother making toast strips to eat with my egg in the morning.  On special days she would sprinkle a mix of  cinnamon and sugar on top, pop them in  the oven on broil for a few seconds until they started to bubble.  The kitchen would smell of cinnamon as I waited in anticipation for the moment I could savor the flavor as well as the smell! Inspired by those memories, this year’s Valentine’s Day Breakfast Menu includes some tasty and comforting heart shaped Cinnamon Toast!

Crunchy and tastey!

We use 2 Tablespoons of Sugar  to 1 teaspoon of Cinnamon, but you can alter it to suit your taste buds.

Need an idea of how to use  up the left over bread?  Put it in a frying pan add an egg and cook until egg starts to solidify, cover for a minute to set the egg. If you like your eggs over easy flip them, then just leave on the other side for about 30 seconds.
Serve with a sprig of green and berries or grape size tomatoes.  Loved by kids and kitchen staff (me)!
