Eggs in a Bell Pepper Basket

You know the classic way to make eggs in a basket. Cut a hole out of a piece of bread. Crack the egg in the  hole. Cook until perfection. 

While I had bread in the cabinet this morning, I don’t want to eat a lot of it. So I improvised. 

I had a slightly wrinkly orange bell pepper. It was on the verge of going bad. So I sliced it into rings and sautéed them in a little oil with some salt and pepper. 

I cracked farm fresh eggs in a ramakin one at a time and poured them into each ring. Right before I poured the egg in, I put a pat of butter on the hot pan. 

I toasted two slices of wheat bread. One for me and one for the boyfriend. Flipped the eggs. I cooked them a little too long. No runny yolks today. And I topped the eggs in a basket with Parmesan cheese. 

Amazing! Extra veggie kick with the bell pepper. Definitely a brunch treat you want to try. I know it will be a staple in our house. 

What did you make for breakfast this morning?
