Eggs in a Nest

15

I love breakfast. Since my family and I have cut out grains entirely {among other things}, I have to get pretty creative in the morning to break the monotony of eggs. I experimented a bit yesterday and gave the typical Eggs in a Nest a fresh look. Perfect for gluten intolerant or celiac folks or those simply following paleo or primal fare.

The sweetness of the pepper is a welcome addition. Served with chicken sausage and a nice cuppa – it is the perfect way to start my day!

Preheat oven to 375° F. Drizzle oil in a ceramic baking dish.
Slice top and bottom from pepper. Cut the remaining pepper in half, horizontally, and remove core and seeds.
Place in bottom of baking dish to coat in oil. Flip once to coat other side.
Crack open one egg and pour into a pepper ring. Repeat with other egg.
Sprinkle salt blend on top and bake in oven to desired doneness. For mine to be completely cooked through, it took about 15-20 minutes.
Remove from oven. Using a metal spatula, lift out of baking dish, and arrange on plate.

  1. My mom used to make “eggs in a nest” for me all the time when I was growing up. I make them every now and then for my own kids. I never thought to make them this way. What a great idea! Thanks for sharing this recipe. I’ll have to try it out.
