Valentine’s Day is a big day for carbs! Candy, chocolate, sweet drinks….
I had already planned to make a big meat heart for Valentine’s Day and treat it like a burger. I thought about making smaller individual heart shaped burgers, but I couldn’t find my cookie cutter. I decided to try the local hobby store and since it was Valentine’s Day, the pickings were very slim. They did have a smaller heart shaped cookie cutter and I also picked up a silicone heart shaped candy mold.
I decided to just bake the big heart, brown the top a little with a torch, add white cheddar in the shape of another heart and add a ketchup border. Serve with favorite burger toppings.
The small hearts are tomato blended with an immersion blender. Add agar agar to a concentration of 1.5% and heat to boiling. Pour the mixture into the mold and cool at room temperature.
Top with sour cream, pesto or other condiment.
