Bell Pepper Egg-in-a-Hole

Meatless Monday Menu – Bell Pepper Egg-in-a-Hole, Salad, Crusty Dinner Roll
Farm Share Produce - Bell Pepper, Salad Mix
Other Local Produce – Cucumbers, Tomatoes

I really enjoyed this dinner. My husband said he would rather have eggs and bell peppers together in a western omelet. Okay, fair enough – I’ll make it when he is out of town or away for dinner.

Bell Pepper Egg-in-a-Hole
Adapted from

1 t olive oil
1 t butter
Bell Pepper, cut into ½ inch slices (I got 4)
4 eggs
Salt and pepper

Heat oil and butter in a non-stick skillet. Add pepper slice and then crack 1 egg into each pepper ring. Cook until whites are mostly set, 2-3 minutes. Gently slip and cook 1 minute more for over easy. Remove from skillet to plate and season with salt and pepper.

NOTE: the original recipe has parmesan cheese sprinkled on the top. YUM! Wish I would have remembered.
