Visually stunning and simple to prepare, this lovely dish always brings a smile. Use Omega-3-rich organic eggs from pasture-raised chickens if available. Any color of bell pepper will work, but try to select 4-point bell peppers instead of 3-point. They taste better.
|Slice bell pepper into rings about 1/2-inch thick. Depending on the size of the bell pepper, this should yield at least 4 rings per pepper. Save the remaining bits of bell pepper for garnish or use in a salad.|
|Lightly coat the bottom of a skillet with olive oil. Turn heat to medium. Add 3 or 4 bell pepper rings to the skillet. Make sure they are not touching each other. After about a minute, turn the rings over.|
|Carefully crack one egg into the center of each bell pepper ring, taking care not to break the yolk. Lightly salt and pepper everything.|
|Cover skillet with a lid, so that the eggs will "steam-fry." Turn heat to low. After 1 minute, lift the lid and check to see if the eggs are done to your liking. (I prefer to have a soft yolk and non-runny whites.)|
|Remove egg flowers from skillet and serve with a sprig or sprinkle of your favorite fresh herb.|
