Bell Pepper Egg-in-a-hole

Delicious or No ?

My sister handed me a stack of old Martha Stewart magazines and I discovered this little gem. The bell pepper adds gorgeous color and a very healthy veggie to your morning. Did I mention it’s really easy? You’ll definitely impress your family and breakfast guests with this bell pepper egg-in-a-hole. Thank you Martha! Serve the eggs-in-a-hole with buttered toast. English muffins are nice too. You can cook the eggs to the doneness you prefer.

Ingredients:

1 red bell pepper (yellow would probably work just as well)

4-5 large eggs

Salt

Pepper

1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese (other cheese would probably work too)

1 Tbsp Olive oil


How to make

1. In a large, non-stick skillet, heat 1 Tbsp olive oil over medium/high heat.

2. Cut peppers into 1/2″ rings and remove the seeds and centers. Place sliced peppers into the pan and let them saute for a minute.



3. Crack one egg into the center of each bell pepper slice. Start pouring the egg in slowly; it prevents the egg from leaking and forms a nice seal, but some will leak no matter what; don’t fuss over it; it will still taste great!


4. Sprinkle salt and pepper over each egg. Saute for 3 minutes, then flip it over carefully.


5. Top with a generous amount of parmesan.


6. If you want your yolks to be juicy (over easy), cook another minute.
