How to mold a boiled egg into a heart shape

“There is nothing romantic about a hard boiled egg—that is, unless you shape it into a heart,” says F&W’s Justin Chapple. The latest tip from our Mad Genius will add some love to your salads, sandwiches, bento boxes and anything else that can be improved by putting an (adorable) egg on it.

It must be stated that this Mad Genius Tip requires some artsy-craftsy effort, so be prepared. The first thing you’ll need is a stash of hard-boiled eggs (check out Jacques Pepin’s tips for perfect boiling and Justin’s hack for easy peeling).

You’ll also need an empty quart-sized milk carton, top and bottom removed; cut down the side so that you are left with a rectangular section of cardboard. Cut this in half again (along one of the creases) and fold using Justin’s method until you’ve MacGyvered a v-shaped “mold.” Once you’re satisfied, place a peeled, hard-boiled egg on its side in the trough of the folded paper.

Now, for your secret weapon—you’ll use a chopstick to form a divot in the egg, making the top of the heart. Lay it along the upward-facing surface of the egg, parallel to the folded paper, and secure tightly with rubber bands. Place the whole contraption in the refrigerator for an hour or two, and it will solidify in the shape of a heart—cut in half or into slices to get the full effect, letting the heart-shaped yolk peek through.

These cuties will add charm to salads, like this Raw Asparagus Salad with Tomatoes and Hard-Boiled Eggs, open-faced sandwiches and avocado toasts, or any other favorite hard-boiled egg recipes. And can you think of any better gift for your boo to celebrate Valentine’s Day? I think not.

As Justin puts it, “Have you ever seen anything so adorable in your whole entire life?”

How to mold a boiled egg into a heart shape

Did you know you can form hard boiled eggs into different shapes. It’s quite easy to do.
The trick is to use a newly boiled egg that is still hot.

Step 1: Materials Needed

  • Hard boiled eggs
  • Rubber bands
  • Molds/shapes

You don’t need anything too fancy, just look around the kitchen and see what you could use. Any small container that would fit an egg snugly but not too tight will work. Be creative.

Step 2: Square Eggs

Place the hot egg in one of the pieces and add the other piece to form a square. Hold it together with rubber bands and put it in the refrigerator for about 30 min until the eggs cools and hardens.
When you remove the egg it should be nice and square.

Step 3: Heart Shaped Eggs

For a heart shaped egg I start by gently pressing the egg with my thumb into the corner of one piece. The egg will flatten a bit.
Next, place the second piece, corner down, on to the egg and press gently to make an impression.
Be gentle, too much pressure will break the egg.

I held it together with rubber bands. Do not double the rubber bands, it will be too much pressure.
Place the egg in the refrigerator for about 30 min and let the egg harden.

Step 4: Oblong/rectangle

For this shape, I flattened the egg a bit and pushed it into a popsicle mold. It was a tight fit so I sprayed it with some cooking spray.

Have you ever turned your Eggs into Hearts?

Heart Shaped Hard Boiled Eggs

So how do you turn a Hard Boiled Egg into a Heart? It is not as hard as you think. A very easy way to do it is by using a Heart Shaped Egg Mold. These are really easy and fun to use. All you have to do is boil your eggs and then place inside of the of the mold snap it closed, stick in the fridge and let it set. When you open the mold your hard boiled egg will be in the shape of a Heart.

Check out the full tutorial here:

How to make a Heart Shaped Egg

Heart Egg Mold

Heart Shaped Fried Eggs

Whether your loved ones like their Fried Eggs sunny side up or over easy you can still serve them up shaped like a Heart. To create fried eggs into heart shapes you will need to use a Heart Ring or a Frying Pan with a Heart Cavity.

Either one of these tools make it easy. All you do is crack your egg right into the Mold or Heart Shaped Frying Pan and your Egg will form the shape of a Heart. If you need to make your fried eggs over easy just wait for the egg to set up and then give it a quick flip. If you are cooking up breakfast for a hungry bunch then double the love and put two eggs into one mold for double the love and double the yolk.

Another fun idea that I do all the time for my kids is what I call “Eggs in a Hole”. This is when you take a slice of bread and cut out the middle, in this case you would cut out the middle of the bread using a Heart Shaped Cookie Cutter. Set aside the piece that you cut into a Heart. Then place the slice with the Heart cut out into a buttered frying pan.

Next just crack your egg directly into the cut out of the heart. Again if they like their fried egg over easy wait till it sets up and give it a flip. Once that cooks take your Heart Shaped piece of bread you cut out and toss it in the pan with some butter to toast up a bit and serve it on the side for dipping in the yolk.

Heart Egg Rings, Heart Frying Pan, Heart Cookie Cutters

Heart Shaped Scrambled Eggs

You can create a Scrambled Egg Heart using the Heart Ring or Heart Frying Pan as talked about above.

Prepare and scramble your Eggs and then just pour them into the mold or pan. Now you will not have loose scrambled eggs, but more of an omelet type egg.

Doesn’t that look yummy?

Heart Egg Poacher

Heart Shaped Poached Eggs

To make Heart Shaped Poached Eggs the best way is to use a Heart Egg Poacher. This just makes it really simple and easy. You can also use one of the Heart Egg Rings, but that may a be a bit more challenging to use when poaching.

To use the Heart Egg Poacher you just sit it in a frying pan within a water bath. Crack your egg into the heart cavity and cook to your desired taste. Easy Peasy !!

Other Heart Shaped Egg Ideas

How could I keep you waiting all week on these eggs? You’ve been dying to know how to make them, yes? Mi scusa, peeps. Just things. But enough already! Let’s do this!

How to mold a boiled egg into a heart shape

Sidebar: I would never actually serve these on a bed of parsley, it just happened to be the only green in the house. I picked up a bunch last week to make Aneta’s fresh quinoa salad but haven’t gotten around to it. I know, I know. Damn salad’s not going to make itself. But back to the eggs.

How to mold a boiled egg into a heart shape

What you need is one of these little babies, the Eggspress heart-shaped boiled egg mould. I found it at my local stationary store, but you can also order it from amazon. It’s $8.95. Which I hope my hubby doesn’t read, as he’d probably turn as white as these eggs. “Is it gold-plated?” he’d ask. Shit, man! Don’t go spoiling my fun!

How to mold a boiled egg into a heart shape

Now the directions say to boil and peel your eggs and put them in the mould when they’ve cooled, but I tried five of them that way and it didn’t work with a damn. No, you wanna work with them when they’re still hot but not so hot that you’ll burn yourself. Peel that egg under some cold water so you can handle it, then pop it in the mould straight away.

How to mold a boiled egg into a heart shape

I used large eggs ‘tho the package calls for small, and most of them fit just fine.

How to mold a boiled egg into a heart shape

Next, you put the mould in a cup of cold water and let it sit for 10 minutes. I put mine in the fridge. Can’t hurt, right?

How to mold a boiled egg into a heart shape

Ideally you’ll open the mould after 10 minutes and have yourself one of these. That’s ideally, mind you. I tried a dozen times and got only two eggs that looked like this. (And of course they’re nowhere near as defined as they are on the package.) The others were either split at the top (which may be a large-egg problem) or heart-shaped on one side and misshapen on the other. Which ain’t worth $8.95 if you ask me. That said, I am tempted to see if it’d work better with the star shape (which you get with the heart for $4) or maybe even the bunny and the bear, because they are just so ridiculously cute. Am I a sucker? You tell me. (No don’t tell me, that would be mean.) I just really want these to work.

Have you tried any kitchen gadgets that flopped? Would you try one of these moulds?

Egg molds have seemingly endless uses. A round one can make perfect circles that cook eggs in breakfast sandwich-ready circles—and can also be used for pancakes, biscuits, burgers, and just about any other food you want to shape. Other types—hearts, stars, flowers—can double as cookie cutters, and those designed for hard-boiled eggs can work their shape-making magic after an egg is cooked. Whatever egg mold you use, it’s a way to take your cooking to a professional level any day of the week.

To help figure out which egg molds are right for your kitchen, we tested them side-by-side at home and evaluated each on design, size, durability, and overall value. Dozens of eggs were baked, fried, and boiled in order to make sure these egg molds are truly the best. As a bonus, we even tested their multitasking capabilities with pancake batter to give you the perfectly round and golden crisp breakfast of your dreams.

Here are the best egg molds.

Silicone is thick and sturdy

Finished egg bites tend to be asymmetrical

Capacity is on the small side

If you’re a fan of Starbucks’ egg bites, you’ll love these mini egg molds. This set includes two trays, each measuring 8.25 inches in diameter, and there are seven mini molds in each tray for a total of 14 egg bites. Each tray also comes with a hard plastic lid that snaps on, which is convenient for traveling and stacking.

These egg mold trays are made of BPA-free , food-grade silicone , which is also stain-resistant and odor-free. They are wonderful for making a variety of foods, such as popsicles, brownies, yogurt, baby food, and, of course, eggs.

Our tester found five large eggs with vegetables (she used chopped peppers and onions) and shredded cheese mixed in was just the right amount to fill one tray. She forgot to grease the mold the first time baking egg bites, but the cooked eggs popped right out with no mess left behind.

While there are instructions for cooking time and temperature for an Instant Pot, there is no guidance for those who prefer to use an oven. That said, our tester baked a batch at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes, and her egg bites came out perfectly cooked, albeit a little lopsided.

As mentioned above, these trays are compatible with a 6- or 8-quart Instant Pot or a pressure cooker. They can also be placed in the freezer, microwave, and oven because they are resistant to temperatures up to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. When it comes time to clean, they are dishwasher safe.

I felt confident sliding them in and out of the oven without the use of a baking sheet, and the lids make it easy to meal prep. They will definitely become a regular for making egg bites and maybe even mini pancake bites in my house. — Sharon Lehman, RDN, Product Tester

How to mold a boiled egg into a heart shape

Do you want to add a unique touch to your breakfasts or dinners? Then don’t miss out on this opportunity to surprise your partner by learning to make heart-shaped eggs. It’s really fun and is sure to make them smile.

Eggs are always a versatile resource that offer many possibilities in the kitchen. Today we’re going to show you three romantic ways to prepare heart-shaped eggs.

Make heart-shaped eggs

At first glance, it might seem like something that’s really difficult to pull off, but we assure you that it’s as simple to do and fun. So much so that we’re sure you’re going to try it on more than one occasion.

What do I need?

  • 1 hard boiled egg
  • 2 rubber bands
  • A stick 8″ in length
  • One piece of cardboard 8″ x 6″


  • It’s really simple. The first thing you’ll need to do is cook the egg like you would normally do.
  • Once cooked, quickly remove the shell. Then, while it’s still hot, place it in the mold we made to give it the shape of a heart. How do I do that? It’s really easy. Take the piece of cardboard and fold it in half, and put the egg inside.
  • Now, as you can see in the above image, the secret is in placing the stick in the center of the egg. To keep it in place, wrap the rubber bands around the cardboard to hold it.
  • Let the egg cool for half an hour, then carefully remove the stick. Now you just have to cut it in half and like magic, both halves will be shaped like a heart. Use it as part of a fun breakfast.

2. Fun with heart-shaped fried eggs

You already know how to make hard-boiled eggs into a heart shape. What if you could learn how to do the same thing with fried eggs? We’ll show you two original ways to do it, you choose the one you like best. Or try both!

Eggs with sausage: tasty!

  • So simple and fun. The first thing we need to do is get some sausages that are long and thin enough to make our hearts. Some people also make them with vegetables, strips of peppers or even potatoes. Choose whichever one you like best, but sausages usually seem to turn out best.
  • Fry the sausages using tongs or a toothpick to hold them in the shape of a heart. Next, very carefully crack an egg into the center of the sausage mold. Use a wooden spoon if you need to. Try to find a frying pan that’s right for this type of delicate task.
  • Little by little, the egg will cook. The next step, equally delicate, is to put the heart on a plate without it breaking. If you can manage to do that, your job is done. Don’t forget to decorate your heart with a little ketchup to make Cupid’s arrow!

The simplest technique: use a mold

  • There are molds manufactured exclusively for frying eggs in the shape of a heart. They have a little handle that lets you cook the egg a little easier. To do this, just add a little olive and once hot, crack in the egg.
  • The egg will quickly fry without any trouble. Then all you have to do is put it on a plate and it’s ready! This mold will also let you cut heart shapes out of bread. Then just toast them and put the egg on top. It’s really original.
  • Some real experts in this type of thing can actually shape the yolk into a heart shape while it’s still in the pan. How do they do it? With a spoon, pushing the yolk around to make it into a heart.

Remember that eggs are always a great choice for breakfast. They’re full of protein, which makes them perfect for starting your day. You won’t have to worry about cholesterol as long as you keep your portions balanced. Ready to make some hearts for breakfast?
