Fresh, sweet bell peppers are a nice foil for the richness of the sunny yellow yolks. We lightened up the usual egg-in-a-hole by using bell peppers in place of the fried bread slices and serving the eggs on multigrain toast.

    All in all a wonderful and simple dish! I believe after making it as directed it could be elevated to spectacular by adding all or even one of the following. I think I would lightly butter the toast, add a garnish of pickled onions on top and possibly a smear of mashed avocado on the toast before placing the egg.

    I'm not very clear on previous suggestions to amend the recipe. What non-meat fillings do you use? Can you give more detail on your ideas and your directions? Thanks.

    The Pepper Ring idea is kinda' chinsy..I make this as a Stuffed Bell Pepper/cooked in a seasoned liquid on the StoveTop--you can make 4-hollowed out Bell Peppers/and use Non-Meat Fillings--adding a Raw Egg(for poaching) when you transfer to a 350-degree[F]Oven../splitting the Bell Pepper in half--makes a excellent meal.
