I was craving something for a late breakfast the other day, but wanted something a little more hearty. This post was inspired by the one and only Peter Pevoto. He posted a picture of his eggs in a nest breakfast on my Facebook wall, and the idea of eggs in a nest inspired this eggs in a red bell pepper idea. Hope yall enjoy!
Fresh Sourdough Bread (thinner breads might fall apart, so choose a bread with some substance)
Fresh Bell Pepper
Crushed Red Pepper
At the last minute, I threw a little of my homemade Spicy Italian Dipping Sauce on top
Mince the garlic.
I cooked everything in the same pan. I used a cast iron skillet and highly suggest you use cast iron if you have one. Place minced garlic in the pan and generously drizzle with olive oil.
Place your bread in the pan and brown on both sides.
Each side should look something like this. Those spots on the bread are the garlic.
This is my attempt at making the sausage patty in the same shape as the bread.
Be sure to cook the sausage all the way through.
Wash and slice the red bell pepper, removing the ribs and seeds.
Drizzle extra olive oil in the skillet and place the bell pepper slice in. Crack the egg into the bell pepper slice. If your slice does not have even edges, some of the egg whites might slip out, not a big deal.
Now, plate the bread with the sausage and bell pepper with egg on top. I added some Italian dipping sauce herbs for extra flavor. Hot sauce or pico de gallo would go great as well.
