Egg In A Pep

Many moons ago I saw a little thing on Pinterest that made my tummy growl. About 3 years later, I finally got off my booty about it and took the 4 minutes out of my day that it takes to make it. Yes, seriously it's crazy easy and speedy. And of course the most important part, it's healthy. Winning.

You may have seen me drool over it on Instagram this past weekend. But I don't like to be alone so I'm gonna let you drool with me and post it here. Although, if you're not a fan of eggs or peppers, you will most likely just eye-roll at this simplicity and move on.

What You Need: (I keep it clean, you can use whatever healthy/unhealthy version you want)

  • pasteurized eggs
  • grass fed butter 
  • organic bell pepper (green is my go-to and fave)
  • salt/pepper

What You Do: 

  • Push your pepper over on it's side and slice it. I shouldn't have to tell you but remove the seeds. Each slice is for each egg. 
  • Melt the butter in a pan and drop the peppers in to cook on one side for a few minutes. 
  • Smash Crack your egg and drop one into each pepper, let cook for a few minutes, to your liking of a fried egg.
  • Sprinkle a lil salt and pepper on 'em (and/or any other seasonings of your choice)
  • FLIP!
  • And again, cook to your liking of a fried egg and add some seasonings if you want more. 
  • Put on a plate, post on Instagram, and NOMs away. 


  1. That looks delish :) I think I'll try that soon!

  2. i thought it was gonna be like "meh." but it was so good! let me know if you try it :)

  3. Ooooh this looks so good! I've always seen it with toast but just never tried it for some reason.

  4. Love how simple it is but lots of flavor with the pepper added.

  5. This is such a good idea! I try and eat eggs every once in a while but they're usually so bland when I make them myself- this would be a good way to jazz them up a bit!

  6. this is so cute! i usually eat scrambled eggs but need to add some variety!

  7. i love this dish!! we also make a fancier french toast and do "egg in a hole" (with bread).

  8. I HAVE to try this! Heck I may even have it for dinner!
