"We were ever so impressed with these eggs served over the Easter Weekend. They are not only delicious but make for awesome presentation. Perfect for that special breakfast, great addition to brunch. Next time you have breakfast guests and want to add something special to impress your family and friends, give these eggs a try. I know they really impressed us! Best of all they are super easy to make. We served them with bowls of salsa, cheese and crumbled bacon allowing everyone their choice of toppings.I had mine with toast and sliced tomatoes."

Step 1

In a large heavy skillet or non stick pan heat oil to medium, add pepper rings allowing to cook a few minutes, flip over

Step 2

Add an egg to each bell pepper ring (cracking the egg into a small bowl and gently pouring into the pepper ring makes this step easier) Season with salt and pepper. To prevent whites from leaking out from under the pepper ring lightly press down on rings with egg turner. It will help to contain the whites

Step 3

Cook to desired stage. For sunny side up cover with lid while firming up. For easy over gently flip over and cook about a minute more

Step 4

Great with toast, sliced tomatoes and condiments of your choice

Great and different for a wonderful and delicious breakfast. Such a fantastic way to cook eggs. Can't wait for summer to make these with some home grown capsicum/peppers. Served with toast these make for a fantastic starter to the day!

Definitely a 5-star recipe! Mine leaked out the bottom immediately, so no time to tamp down on the pepper ring. But when I flipped it, I scooped the leaky whites into the ring while it finished cooking. I covered for a minute and they came out perfect - whites cooked but yolk totally runny. Served with leftover cheesy potato cups and fresh slivered basil. Beautiful and delicious!!!

This really is a special breakfast and they are so good and easy to prepare too. I had them at my mom's house with home fries and english muffins and we loved having something different for breakfast that tastes this good!

I had some peppers that needed to be used and made these over the weekend for my hubby and I. We loved them! I served home fries with hot sauce on the side and topped these with salsa and cheese. Yummo!

This is a great way to cook eggs up for a special occasion. I added a bit of crumbled bacon to my eggs and served it up with toasted english muffins. Made for the Billboard Recipe Tag Game.
