Egg in a Red Bell Pepper

Egg in a Red Bell Pepper. A fun way to eat eggs...with some extra veggies, too!

I promise this to be my last pepper post for awhile! But, this idea is something my husband told me about that his work friends have been making.  Eggs, cooked inside a pepper.  It’s as easy as it looks:

Egg in a Red Bell Pepper

  • Slice bell peppers through the middle.
  • Place sliced pepper on a hot skillet.
  • Crack an egg into the center.
  • When egg whites are no longer runny, flip and cook on the other side.

It’s tough to get veggies in for us at breakfast, so these are great.  What do you like to do with bell peppers?Egg in a Red Bell Pepper. A fun way to eat eggs...with some extra veggies, too!

Retro says:

Hey, these look great! Do you think they could be baked? I’m terrible at flipping eggs. 🙂

So super cute! I am sure my girls would love a flowery breakfast 🙂 Thanks for sharing!

Angie says:

I’m not quite sure how you would flip the egg if it’s already inside the pepper… I’d just do this in the oven! Looks great!

Amy says:

Angie: Oven’s a great idea! Also, when you cut the pepper thin enough, it flips really easily. It tastes sooo good cooked on the griddle for some reason..kind of that caramelized pepper taste.

Amy says:

REtro: I’m so sorry, I’m cleaning out my inbox today after a HUGE project. YES! They can be baked, but that yummy caramelized flavor you can get with peppers cooked in a skillet is soooo good. You should try it!

Anna says:

I just made these for my 5-year old for lunch. Mine did not turn out that pretty, but he gobbled them up anyway. I used cucumber sticks for the stems. He wants them again tomorrow.

Amy says:

I’m so glad he liked them! Thanks for the feedback!

This would be a great recipe if I liked my eggs sunny-side-up. Maybe my son will like this recipe. I shall try this when he gets old enough to eat it. He’s only 9 months now.

Amy says:

Asilee, you can even hard cook the egg all the way through.. of course it won’t LOOK the same, but it is still delicious!!

Eli says:

I don’t mean to be dense but do you cut the pepper into a ring or in half as if putting egg into a cup?

Amy says:

Hi Eli,
good question! Those are rings- there is no bottom to them. not a cup!

Allison says:

Michele says:

My kids prefer scrambled eggs so we dice up the rainbow of bell peppers and cook them with our scrambled eggs. Yummy!

Amy says:

Oh my goodness Michele! That is a great idea! Much easier to get them cooked throughout.

stacy says:

So, you cut the pepper in half, but it doesn’t have a bottom in the skillet? So the egg is also touching the skillet?

Amy says:

Yes- there is no bottom on the pepper. The egg is being cooked on the skillet.
