I first made these one morning when I wanted to make breakfast sandwiches but didn't have enough egg rings. I used a pepper to make rings, cooked the eggs in a ring topped them with tomato & served on a English muffin. They were a hit! I have continued to cook my eggs this way, just be sure to make the pepper slice with one cut so that it lays flat in the pan so the egg doesn't leak out. I have also used onion rings. 5 stars because it is so simple, easy & good. Read More

If your egg is too much for the pepper ring line the pepper ring with a slice of ham & bake in the oven at 350 for 15 - 20 minutes top with 1/4 processed cheese slice during last 5 minutes of cook time!! Delish! Read More

Very good idea! I sauteed the pepper rings in a non-stick pan with a little bit of grapeseed oil on medium low heat to soften them before adding eggs. Sprinkled with salt n' pepper and topped with a tablespoon of shredded cheddar cheese. Covered pan with glass lid and continued cooking on med.-low to melt cheese and baste eggs. Turned out perfect!!

Read the flipping and leaking problem. I used a little canola spray and then fried the pepper a bit (about a minute) and then added the egg. This seemed to take care of the leak. For those who like their eggs 'over easy' I just took the pan lid added added a little water (like a tablespoon or two) to the pan and covered it. The steam generated results in an over easy egg. The longer you leave it the more it cooks. Ya might wanna give this a try. Read More

A great idea, but with modifications. Get the largest peppers you can, cut them into 1/2 to 3/4 inch rings. Use small eggs, not jumbo's. I also add diced tomatoes, and diced ham inside the pepper ring, a kind of western with a yolk, and don't flip them, after a few minutes when the bottom is set, turn heat to low/warm, cover pan and cook to desired doneness ! I added chourizo in lieu of ham for my more adventuresome friends, actually, anything works, just cut to appropriate size, and cook item ahead if needed, i.e., mushrooms, sausage, etc.. Read More

Made this many times for company. I also buy extra large eggs so I just cut the pepper thicker to contain it. Also use a large onion for onion rings. Using onion rings and different colors of peppers makes for a festive presentation or use just red and green for Christmas or just red for Valentine's etc. Do cook the peppers and onions ahead of time and cover the pan with a lid. If you do this you will not have to flip them. Read More

Loved the idea of this 'recipe'. I tried this a while back before I saw this recipe. Your success will all depend on your personal preferences re: how much you like to cook your peppers and how and how much you like to cook your eggs...not to mention such domestic engineering feats as the size of the pepper the size of the egg whether the egg leaks out under the pepper ring whether your nonstick skillet is truly nonstick ETC. I would actually like to try this again with scrambled eggs...whisking the eggs together first then pouring into the pepper rings. Then I could control the amount of egg in each! PS: I always had trouble flipping an egg without breaking the yolk until duh just the other day after cooking for more years than I care to count I sprayed my utensil with Pam before I attempted the flip!

These are so much fun to make and to look at! I love it! I cooked the pepper a little on both sides before adding the egg just to make sure it got soft enough. Served with a side of bacon perfect breakfast:) Read More
