When the oil is hot, ask an adult to help you put the toast in the pan.

Then ask the adult to carefully crack the egg into the heart-shaped hole in the toast.

Put the lid on the pan and heat it on a low heat for about 10 minutes, checking it every now and then.

When the egg is ready, ask an adult to use the spatula to take it out of the pan and put it on a plate.

You can now add the heart-shaped piece of toast too if you like.
