Eggs Fried with Tomato in Bell Pepper Ring

Looking for bright colors for fresh and energetic start of the day? This is your recipe: easy nutritious breakfast eggs and very fun looking also, when prepared accurately. I bet your kids will love them as much as I do.

I usually pick green peppers, they look good in combination with yellow-white eggs and red tomatoes. But any color will work here, just make sure you select big and nice shaped pepper.

Don’t worry if egg white spills around the bell pepper ring, you can easily remove it later on with spatula.

Ingredients:

  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tomato
  • 1 bell pepper
  • Butter
  • Salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • Leaf of fresh dill for decoration

How to prepare, step-by-step:

  1. Prepare ingredients: pick big and wide bell pepper, smaller tomato and eggs:

  2. Rinse bell pepper, remove stem and seeds and cut 2 big rings about 1/3” thick. Warm up skillet over moderate low heat and grease it with butter, add them to the skillet and fry on one side for about 3 mins:

  3. Slice 2 thin circles of tomato and position them in the middle of the bell pepper rings and season with salt and fry for 1-2 mins more (btw, you will not need the remaining part of the bell pepper as well as tomato, you can use them for decoration however):

  4. Carefully crack an egg into one of the bell pepper rings right over the tomato, don’t worry if a bit of egg white gets out, you can simply remove it later on (but if too much spills that is a sign to get bigger bell pepper, or slice rings thicker, or use smaller eggs):

  4. Francecana says:

    Made it with red peppers since we do not like the green ones and it tasted delicious! Next time I’ll avoid covering with a lid to have perfect yellow yolks like yours on the picture :)

    • MeCooking says:

      I had troubles with getting it cooked enough w/o lid, it if you like your egg less cooked – I think w/o lid it should work as well :)…
      I think if you dice tomatoes instead of using whole piece the cooking will go faster too, I will try it next time.

    this so beautiful i saw the picture on 9GAG.com and searched this website thanks im making it today is there anything i can replace the tomato with?

    • You can skip tomato if you don’t like it, but egg white can spill more in this case.

      I have seen a few variations of this type of recipe and have now come up with my favorite! I cook up a slice of bacon for each egg I am making. ( set the bacon aside till needed) I then slice a ring of my favorite pepper and mince a litle bit of sweet onion. I pan fry the peppper first so it will be a little more done. (At the same time I am frying my pepper ring, I throw in my minced onion and fry that as well. After the peppper ring and minced oncion starts to get softer (3 or 4 minutes ) I divide up the onion by puttion a portion inside each pepper ring. Now I take the cooked bacon and wrap it around the inside of my pepper wring. Before adding your egg, be sure to add some butter or cooking spray which will help things cook as well as not stick! Then crack your egg inside the bacon and pepper and onto the minced onion! Finish it off with some of your favorite fruit!

    At first I cracked eggs into the bowl and then poured them slowly into the pepper rings, so it was easier to fill them precisely.

    I just made this, but I turned it into a sandwich!

  17. Kitty says:

    Hi, Your recipe is great but – I’m having some trouble with it.

    My egg is too runny and takes too long to cook. By the time its somewhat firm, the bottom is black and awful. Even turning up the heat doesn’t help… it just burns the bottom quicker.

    How do I get the whites to cook faster before then bottom burns? (I don’t mind the yolk runny though)

    Thanks!

    If you like to drink eggs not eat them this is the perfect recipe. The tomato and the butom of the pepper burns the hell out and the egg remains raw… beside this I redecorate the kitchen….
    I’m not sure but I think the egg is prepared separately and then inserted into the bell pepper…
