Egg in a Hole

While flipping through some old Everyday Food Magazines, I came across this Egg in a Hole recipe. Super simple, but gives a boring, old fried egg a little something more.

This was the perfect way to try out our fresh eggs from our newly laying chickens!

Egg in a Hole

2 teaspoons butter
1 bell pepper (any color), cut into four 1/2-inch-thick rings
4 large eggs
Coarse salt and ground pepper
2 teaspoons of your favorite grated cheese

In a large nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon butter over medium-high. Add bell pepper rings, 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 cheese. Serve once cheese is melted.
