Eggs in a Hole - Sunny-side up Eggs in Bell Pepper Rings
We love it when a little twist here or there makes a otherwise mundane meal a little more special! When I saw this for the first time a few months back I knew I had to give this a try but never got around to doing it till today! It sure made our breakfast a little extra special today. My husband and I have been trying hard to eat healthier. But it becomes hard when healthy equals depressing looking stuff! Some fun options that we are trying are - Granola with nuts (always check the sugar content), plain yogurt and fresh fruits, Whole-wheat Banana Muffins with Chocolate Chip, Whole-wheat Apple Cinnamon Muffins and using little bit of agave here and there to sweeten things up a bit!
- Eggs - 2, at room temperature
- Bell Pepper Rings - 2, 1/4th inch thick
- Oil - 1 tsp
- Pepper - a pinch for each egg, freshly crushed
- Salt - To taste
Heat oil in a pan. Add the bell pepper rings, one or two at a time depending on the size of your pan. Now carefully crack open the eggs into the capsicum rings. Sprinkle salt and pepper. Cook till done and using a spatula slide it onto a plate very gently. If you are not a fan of sunny-side up, go ahead and flip the bell pepper ring and cook for a minute or two. It won't look as pretty but you will have your 'Fried Egg in a Hole'. The bell pepper adds a nice bite and kicks up the flavors a notch.
