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.

Instructions Checklist
  • In a large cast-iron or nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon oil over medium-high. Add bell pepper, then crack 1 egg into the middle of each pepper ring. Season with salt and pepper and cook until egg whites are mostly set but yolks are still runny, 2 to 3 minutes. Gently flip and cook 1 minute more for over easy. Sprinkle with Parmesan and place each egg on a slice of toast. Toss salad greens with 1 teaspoon oil and season with salt and pepper; serve alongside eggs.

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.
