egg and pepper samich. quick, and simple with great flavors!

"Was awesome. Quick, simple, delicious. Can make sunny side up, over easy, or break the yolk. Can add whatever you want on top: cheese, scallions. Season with Tabasco sauce. "


1 large egg; in shell
1 regular size english muffin; lightly toasted
1 whole bell pepper of choice; red, yellow, orange, green

Original recipe makes 1 Serving



Heat frying pan or griddle on medium. Best option is to use a flat cooking surface like a griddle or flat stove-top pan.

Wash, then remove the top of the pepper, seeds and core. Cut pepper into ring shapes, about ½ inch thick. Place pepper ring on pan/griddle cook for 3-4 minutes then flip to other side.

After the first flip, crack 1 egg into the pepper ring. Add salt & black pepper to taste. While the egg cooks, lightly toast an English muffin of choice.

When the egg is cooked to your desired doneness, remove egg, place on English muffin and ENJOY!


If using a frying pan, add a few drops of water to the pan and cover for 1-2 minutes, the steam will help cook the top of the egg white without the yolk turning solid.

I like to cut a pepper into multiple rings, store in the fridge and use as needed.

This a a pretty simple and rewarding recipe and turns out really cool when done right. An Extremely steady hand and extra sharp knife are a must to get a good result though. If the pepper ring isn't completely flat half the egg comes out the sides. I'm sure some sort of slicer would also work, but I haven't ever tried it. I have a pretty steady hand. If i do have some egg come out the side I trim off the extra with a pairing knife to give it that picture perfect look.

Tastes like a pepper with egg of course but I would not make this again. Didn't come out like the picture. The egg white oozed out of the sides of the pepper while cooking. The pepper fell out of the sandwich while eating it. Wasn't worth the trouble. I'd rather make an egg omelet with diced peppers.

This is so clever! I love egg sandwiches but hate trying to fight an egg to fit the bread. You are awesome.
