1 large capsicum or any coloured bell pepper
2 whole eggs
1/2 tomato diced into small pieces
1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley or coriander
Salt & Pepper to taste
2 tablespoons grated cheddar cheese
2 Strips of bacon chopped (optional)
Cut off the top and bottom of the capsicum and deseed it. Chop the bases that you just cut up into small pieces. Now cut 2 inch thick rings out of what is left.
Take a non-stick pan and spray it with a little oil. Put the capsicum rings in the pan. Add half of the chopped capsicum, tomato, bacon and parsley in the rings.
Now break an egg into each ring and let it fill up the corners of the rings. Add the remaining chopped capsicum, tomato, bacon and parsley on top of the eggs. Add salt and pepper to taste and cover with a lid and let it cook for a minute on a mild flame in its own steam. Now top it with the grated cheese and cover and cook for another two mins till the cheese has melted and the egg cooked through.
Serve hot with wilted spinach and buttered toast for a wholesome and deliciously different breakfast!
