Egg in a Bell Pepper
Author: Two Thirds Cup
Prep time: 3 mins
Cook time: 4 mins
Total time: 7 mins
  • ½ Tbsp pastured butter, extra-virgin olive oil, or coconut oil
  • 1 bell pepper
  • 4 pastured eggs
  • unrefined sea salt, to taste
  • pepper to taste
  • ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
  1. Heat a pan over medium heat and add butter or oil to the pan.
  2. Cut the pepper into ½" rings and remove the seeds and centers.
  3. Place the rings in the pan and cook for about 1 minute.
  4. Flip the peppers and cook for another minute.
  5. Crack one egg into the center of each pepper slice. To keep the egg from running under the pepper too much, pour the egg in slowly.
  6. Sprinkle salt and pepper over each egg.
  7. Cook for 1 minute or until the egg has set and you can flip it without breaking the yolk.
  8. Flip each pepper and egg over carefully so the yolk doesn't break.
  9. Top with parmesan cheese and cook for another minute.
  10. Serve hot.
It's easier to cook just one or two "eggs in a pepper" in the pan at a time to make them easier to flip.
