Eggs in Bell Pepper Rings

From the recipe box of travel writer Carole Terwilliger Meyers.

Perfect for breakfast or dinner, these easy-to-make bell pepper and egg flowers bring cheer to the table.  I like to make them with two peppers in different colors and use the leftover peppers in a salad.

2 bell peppers
Cut off top, then cut two ½-inch rings from each.  Remove the cores.  Place in an oiled frying pan over medium heat. 

4 eggs
Crack an egg into each ring.  Season with salt and pepper to taste.  Cook until the eggs are ready to turn, then flip like a regular fried egg.  Continue cooking until done to your liking. 

chives or rosemary
Cut over top of eggs to add color. 

Serves 2.
