Valentine’s Day Recipes From Chef Couples: Egg Sandwich, Strip Steak and More


Need some Valentine’s Day mealtime inspiration? Us Weekly has got you covered with this roundup of drool-worthy recipes from famous chef couples who are running restaurants across the country.

If your loved one is a fan of breakfast in bed, look no further than the “Pepper Boy” sandwich recipe from Egg Shop. The trendy New York City eatery is owned by adorable husband-and-wife team Sarah Schneider and Demetri Makoulis, who have been together for more than 10 years.

The dish itself is an elevated take on the traditional BEC (that’s short for bacon, egg and cheese), and in addition to the titular ingredients, this messy meal features some diced green bell pepper and a homemade caramelized onion aioli that tastes like it came straight from a five-star chef’s kitchen. It can also be made into a gluten-free meal.

If omelettes are more your speed for breakfast (or lunch), try the soft omelette-in-a-bag recipe from Anna and David Posey of Chicago’s Elske restaurant. Though the dish sounds complicated, it’s really just an unconventional, yet fun and easy way to make a delicious omelette. Procrastinators might also be relieved to know that this meal, which features cayenne pepper and a squeeze of lemon juice, can easily be prepared early and served at anytime of day.
