Use your cookie cutter to cut heart shapes out of the center of the slices of bread. (Save the hearts - you'll use those in a minute.)
In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Place the slices and hearts on the skillet and toast them on both sides.
Crack an egg into the middle of the heart-shaped cut-out.
Try to keep the yolk in the center - it likes to drift to the side.
Place a lid on the skillet and cook the egg until it reaches your desired level of doneness (probably about 3 minutes).
Add the salt, pepper, and chives (if desired).
Repeat with any remaining bread slices/eggs, then serve and enjoy!
