Eggs Capsicana or Pepper Egg or ...

I'm really not too sure what to call this.  I found it over here and then modified it a little.

I don't think it really matters what you call it, cause it tasted good and was for me a fun way to eat a green pepper.

I had some peppers in the fridge I'd bought cause they looked good and were on sale and I thought they needed to find a new home in my freezer. 

I love having chopped up peppers in the freezer, I can use them in so many different ways.   From fillings in omelettes' to fajitas to quesadilla's, well you get the drift.

To start with, take a fresh green pepper or any other color you like, cut it in half, then clean out the seeds.

Lightly grease a pan or just hit it with some cooking spray, place the pepper cut side down in the pan and cover it, let it cook for about 4 minutes or so.

Then flip it over, place a few slices of cheese inside, like this and let them melt.
Add your egg, cover it and let it cook on low heat for a few minutes.   I did find out one thing, that the pepper has to be dead level and deep, or the egg white overflows the side, and that can not be a good thing.

 Mine took almost 10 minutes, and then I kinda overcooked it a little.   Add a little cracked black pepper and you're done.


Look at that cheese oozing out.    I just ate this bare bones, but I think it would have been great with some toast as well.  
Simple, easy and can you imagine making a whole pan full for friends and really wowing them at breakfast?  or a nice brunch.
