Eggs in bell peppers – how pretty! I saw the idea on Pinterest (of course) and just had to try it. It’s the simplest recipe – you fry eggs, but you fry them inside bell pepper molds, which makes for a pretty presentation and is also very tasty, as the bell peppers become soft and slightly caramelized.

Recipe type: Breakfast, Gluten-Free, Low-Carb, Primal/Paleo
Yield: 3 servings
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 bell pepper rings (1/3-inch thick)
  • 3 large eggs
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  1. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat, about 4 minutes.
  2. Add the bell pepper rings. Cook 1 minute on each side.
  3. Crack an egg into each bell pepper ring. Lower heat to medium-low. Cook until whites are set, 5-10 minutes.
  4. Season with salt and pepper, and serve.
If your eggs are very large, baking them in the oven rather than frying might prove more efficient in terms of getting the whites to set. Simply brush a baking dish with the olive oil, place the bell pepper rings in the dish and crack the eggs into the rings. Bake 10-12 minutes in a 400-degree F oven.
