Egg in a {Pepper} Hole


People have been making “Egg in a Hole” for eons now. Certainly since before I was born and, if my children are to be believed, that means it’s been eons.


Egg in a Hole, if you’re not already aware, is simply an egg fried in the middle of a piece of toast. It looks like this:

It’s good. It’s simple food and it’s made from ingredients most of us have rolling around. Kids tend to enjoy the novelty of it.


Playing off that novelty, Egg in a {Pepper} Hole throws a little produce in the mix and adds some fun color.



Ingredients (for 4 pepper slices, which will serve 2-4):


  • 1 bell pepper
  • 4 eggs
  • salt & pepper
  • 4 slices toast


Slice top and bottom off bell pepper with a serrated knife. Carefully cut around center to remove ribs and seeds. Slice in four thick slices, trying to keep your cuts pretty straight.


Place pepper slices on griddle or flat skillet– the flatter the better.


Carefully pour one egg into center of each. The egg can be broken straight in, which will result in almost a “flower” effect, or scrambled before pouring– that’s all personal preference.


Season with salt and pepper, to taste, and allow to set up for a minute or two. Carefully flip with a thin spatula and cook on other side for about a minute.



Serve on top of or beside a slice of toast.
