"Egg Pepper Rings with Carrot Salsa

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 each medium red and yellow pepper
  • 2 tbsp. Extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 large carrots, coarsely grated
  • 1 pint cherry or grape tomatoes, quartered
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 c. fresh cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 8 large eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. dried oregano
  • Kosher salt and pepper
  • Toasted English Muffins (optional)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Slice the peppers into eight 1/2-inch-thick rings. Dice the remaining peppers and transfer to a medium bowl.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add the pepper rings and cook until they begin to soften and turn golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes per side.
  3. Meanwhile, in a bowl, toss the diced peppers, carrots, tomatoes and garlic with the remaining tablespoon oil and a pinch each salt and pepper, then fold in the cilantro.
  4. Crack 1 egg into each pepper ring; sprinkle with oregano and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Cover and cook until the whites are set, 4 to 5 minutes for soft yolks. Top with the carrot salsa and serve on English muffins (if using).
