"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. "

Are you making this? 
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.

I absolutely love this quick and hearty breakfast . It warms and fuels me up before heading outdoors for some cross country skiing . NB: I sometimes use Naan bread instead.

Samich is something that two year olds say when they cant pronounce S-A-N-D-W-I-C-H correctly. Is this supposed to be clever? Pathetic

Yum! I did flip the egg (no yolks broken). Added a thin slice of ham and cheese. Be careful of yolk running out of the sandwich when you bite into it. All fit nicely on a sandwich round. May try it with scrambled eggs to make the sandwich to go.

After one bite, the pepper tends to fall out of the sandwich unless you're paying close attention to keeping it in there.
