DSCN9468This is a simple no fuss recipe that will make a great summer dish.  To cook your  peppers on the BBQ, just break the eggs and season!  This recipe is a real topic of conversation.  Your guest will love looking at them in anticipation and then dipping their bread in the soft egg yolks.


4 red peppers, cut in half, seeds and white membrane removed

8 organic eggs

salt and pepper to taste

olive oil


1-  Heat the BBQ to a medium-heat flame.  Spray or brush the grill with a bit of vegetable oil.

2- Arrange the peppers cut-side up on the BBQ.  Brush the peppers with a bit of olive oil and season with salt.

3- Break each egg inside each pepper half and season the egg with salt and pepper.

4-  Drizzle the pepper baskets with a bit of olive oil.

5-  Close the BBQ lid and let the peppers cook until they are juicy and the eggs are just set and soft.

6- It will take around 20 to 25 minutes.

7-  Serve them with a green salad and a nice chunk of farm bread.


  • I like to use red peppers for this recipe.  I love their colour and I also think they are sweeter. You can also use yellow peppers if you want.  I find that the green peppers once cooked on the BBQ can be a bit bitter.
