Huevos en los Pimientos

I had a wonderful time this weekend in Rehoboth Beach with Architect and her family....Foodie was there too. The weather was glorious and it was nice to relax on the beach and do absolutely nothing but people of my favorite beach activities. We saw some dolphins swim by and they surprised their beach-bound spectators with a spontaneous performance…they jumped completely out of the water…so exciting!

Architect's hubby, also an architect, and Foodie's hubby -- architect # 3 – grilled on Saturday evening and among the assortment of grilled goodies were peppers and eggs. Peppers and eggs…on the grill?

This dish was unlike any pepper and egg sandwich or omelet I ever had.

And, I have to admit, I was a little skeptical.

Let me clarify.

These were actually eggs poached in grilled peppers – Huevos en los Pimientos. Each red pepper was cut in half lengthwise and rubbed with a bit of olive oil. Mr. Architect placed the peppers cut side up on the grill and when the peppers softened a bit, he cracked an egg into each pepper half....the egg cooked right inside of the pepper. When served, each pepper half was flawlessly grilled and the egg was perfectly poached right inside!

Please give this a try...they are quite delicious. An ideal breakfast treat too!
