As I was thumbing through Everyday Food Magazine, I came across this recipe that I think is brilliant! It's like an egg-in-a-hole, but lighter and for those of you not eating carbs or gluten-free, a great alternative!

I served mine on a half point piece of whole wheat toast, but the bread is completely optional. Next time I think I’ll try these in large onion rings? Maybe even topping with a little grated cheddar? So many possibilities.

  1. I am loving these recipes. I just had a gastric bypass, and these recipes have low carbs and low calories. I can only hold 6 ounces, and I can put these great food in a 6-Ounce and it is so good! THANK YOU,

  2. These are delicious! I used pepper & onion and split the eggs so had 4 pieces with the 2 eggs. I flipped mine to cook them more. Definitely trying these again!

  3. I think I would try to flip the bell pepper ring before adding the egg, to get it a little more cooked, and then once the egg is in, partially covering the pan to cook the top, instead of trying to flip it and get it all leaked out. The trick will be keeping the yolk soft enough…. The ultimate will be to use this for Eggs Benedict!

  4. Definitely making this in a pie iron when my hubby and I go camping this weekend! 🙂

  5. Tried to make it yesterday. Well, it doesn't turned out exactly like what it supposed to be looked like. But still, it was so delicious. I'll definitely add it into my breakfast list. I always skipping breakfast because bread can make me gain weight easily. Thank you so much! Keep it up!

  6. Made this for breakfast today and OMG a total keeper!

  7. I am a new fan to your blog and I absolutely LOVE it! Thank you! You are so awesome! Cooked this for breakfast for my mother and I and it was so easy and filling. Yum!
    I've also cooked your Grilled Flank Steak With Tomatoes, Red Onion and Balsamic for last nights dinner and the Broiled Tilapia with Garlic and Skinny Garlic Mashed Potatoes for dinner tonight. I feel like my family is eating better than ever and you are making me look like a genius!

  9. this is delicious! I was just looking for a quick and healthy breakfast since i don't have much time in the morning, and this is perfect!

  10. I like the idea of the onion ring and maybe just a little diced bell pepper on top. I would also add a little cheese with mine and maybe some Real Bacon Bits from the jar. Yum! Great recipe idea.

  11. My dad will love you for sharing this idea. What a clever idea. I'm going to make this with onions for breakfast this weekend. I'm so excited!

Keep up the good work! xox Also, thank you for not using too many specific ingredients, I live in New Zealand, so generic stuff is easier for me to find and replicate! 😀
