Gluten Free Bell Pepper Egg In a Hole

Gluten Free Bell Pepper Egg In a Hole

I saw this idea on Pinterest and just had to try it. It’s the simplest recipe, you fry eggs, but you fry them inside bell peppers which makes for a pretty presentation and is also very tasty, as the bell peppers become soft and slightly caramelized. 

Bell Pepper Egg In a Hole

Sometimes you want a breakfast that’s not only tasty and easily prepared, you want one that looks pretty, too. This is that breakfast. It takes as long to cook it, as it does to fry up an egg.

Egg In a Hole

Pepper of your choice
2 eggs
Salt and pepper
Olive Oil for frying
Chopped spring onion for garnishing

In a large Non Stick Frying Pan , heat olive oil over a medium to high heat.
Cut the peppers into ½" rings and remove the seeds and centers. Place sliced peppers into the pan and let them saute for a minute.
Crack an egg into the center of each pepper slice. Start by pouring the egg in slowly, it prevents the egg from leaking and forms a nice seal.
Sprinkle salt and pepper over each egg. Saute for 3 minutes, then flip it over carefully.
Top with the spring onions.
If you want your yolks to be hard, cook for another minute.
Serve with gluten free bread or toast.

Gluten Free Chilli and Chocolate Brownies

Anyway before i start i need to apologize for the quality of the photos, my camera has been playing up on me lately.

Chilli and Chocolate Brownies

With these i just used a simple chocolate brownie recipe and added 2 teaspoons of chilli powder to give them a chilli kick that works amazingly well together.  

When biting into one of these brownies you will get a delicious chocolate brownie taste followed by that spiciness of the chilli.

Add more chilli if you want a real spicy brownie or add less if you don't like chilli all that much, or don't add any for a simple yet delicious brownie.

Gluten Free Chocolate Brownies

To serve sprinkle with icing sugar or my favorite, heat them up and serve with vanilla ice-cream and sliced strawberries, Mmm yum

Now i admit that this dish is not something i would ever make at home. I found the recipe in a Good To Know recipe Magazine and thought it sounded tasty so i thought i would give it a try.
It was yummy and i believe i will be trying more recipes like it. When it comes to dinner in my house i like things to be easy so i do not usually try making things from scratch. I know i can make things from scratch i am just lazy. Hehe... I like alot of the effort to come out of a jar. 

Rocket Potatoes

Okay back to this recipe... Now this recipe does contain Balsamic Vinegar which alot of you will probably be asking is it gluten free. The answer is Yes it is gluten free. The only vinegar us Celiacs should watch out for is malt vinegar as this is made from Barley. Just check the ingredients just to be sure there is no added wheat. If there is no wheat added it is absolutely fine for you.

My son could not get enough of this cake. He hates blueberries but loved them in this cake. 

Hes a bit like myself, am not very fond of blueberries but in a dessert or a cake they are great and so dangerously yummy.

Gluten Free Blueberry and Orange Madeira

I made mine in a square pan and sliced it into squares. You can make it in a round cake tin.

Gluten Free Cheese and Egg Breakfast Toast

Gluten Free Cheese and Egg Breakfast Toast

This cheese and egg toast is a great and easy treat at breakfast time. You could even have it for lunch or dinner. As you will see i had mine as a wee side with my dinner, i served it with skinny fries and gluten free sausages, not so healthy i no but it was yummy.

Cheese and Egg Breakfast Toast

Who doesn't love a good egg with toast to soak up all that yolk, well this is a whole new take on eggs with toast as the egg is stuck on top of the bread and covered in cheese. 

Cheesy and Egg Breakfast Toast

This can be made with ordinary bread but for us celiacs that wouldn't be a good idea right? What i mean is you can treat another member of your family to this cheese and egg toast using ordinary bread.

Cheese and Egg Toast

I Know its hard to find a good gluten free bread. I mean i have tried alot and some have tasted like tiny rock hard dog biscuits. Not like i have ever tasted a dog biscuit but am guessing it was close enough or maybe the dog biscuit would have tasted better. Also i hate when you have to toast the bread or refreshing it in a microwave before eating it. It just ends up warm and chewy putting it in the microwave. I prefair to be able to just take it out of the packaging and thats it. 

Gluten free breads i would suggest would be Genius, Purebred, and Kelkins Sourdough Bread . My favorite store bought bread would most definitely be from Aldi. They have a wide range of gluten free products that are only growing as they are always adding more gluten free foods.
