Eat Your Heart Out

A heart for your Valentine

Zorra at 1 x umruhren bitte is doing a Valentine Event using edible “hearts”.

This gives new meaning to the saying..“Eat your heart out”, which is what I have been doing looking at all the great entries so far.

You can also view these edible heart entries at the roundup link.

My own entry is a simple
Chip Beef Gravy and Roasted Peppers with Heart Toasts

you will need-
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons flour ( 2 to 3)
1/4 cup chopped roasted red peppers (save a couple of teaspoons for garnish)
1/2 cup chopped up chip beef
1 1/2 cups milk
pepper to taste
white bread slices toasted
1 heart cookie cutter

Melt the butter in a sauce pan with the chip beef. Saute a couple of minutes then add the flour and brown a bit before adding milk, roasted peppers and black pepper.

Stir over medium high heat until thickened.

Toast the white bread slices and using the cookie cutter, cut out hearts. (Save the outer portions of the bread to use in other recipes as breadcrumbs. Toasted breadcrumbs also freeze well until needed.)

To serve- place some gravy on a plate and nestle hearts beside. Garnish with a bit of roasted peppers and tarragon, ( or Mexican Tarragon like I did, as that is the only tarragon I can grow in my own sunroom through the winter months. )
