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.

AlexcalI added a sautéed slice of Canadian Bacon and pepper jack cheese below the egg/pepper combo. These extra ingredients made it more satisfying for the teenagers. Great recipe!4m ago
karilindemanI have used this method before myself. I make it a sandwich by toasting Texas toast slices (the fresh bread kind, not the frozen), spreading some chipotle ranch on each, then using cheese of your choice, put on the pepper egg, top with more cheese and adding bacon and even sautéed onions. Awesome breakfast!5m ago
cheri.mayellgenius I will try when I get fresh peppers!8m ago
walnuttoI've been doing a similar thing like this pepper sandwich for about the last 10 years, though the results are more like a McD. Egg Mcmuffin, since I use both english muffin halves, and add cheese and also bacon, or a sausage patty. I also add a bit of black or green olive, even some tomato bits, either fresh or dried to the egg white as it's placed in the pepper ring.8m ago
SuperTitan34Looks Awesome, I never tried it but the picture makes me want to cook it!🍴🍴🍴9m ago
colby_hansonThis 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.10m ago
tmferrara1010b2g5Tastes 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.10m ago
