6   Extra-large eggs
1   Roasted red pepper - (6 oz)

Recipe Instructions

Place a very large nonstick skillet over low heat. Add the oil and garlic clove into the skillet and gently infuse the garlic flavor into the oil.

In the meantime, using a round cookie cutter or an empty can, cut out the center of all 6 slices of bread. Add the prepared bread slices to the garlic infused oil.

Crack the eggs 1 at a time and drop them into their "nests" or, the center of each slice of bread.

Drain and slice red pepper. Add a strip or 2 of red pepper to each nest.

Season the birds in their nests with salt and pepper and sprinkle a little cheese into each nest. Gently turn the birds in their nests and turn off the heat. Let the eggs sit in their nests 5 minutes more, then transfer to a platter and serve.

This recipe yields 6 servings.
