Ingredients

2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

1/2 yellow bell pepper, thinly sliced

1/2 red bell pepper, thinly sliced

1 English muffin

2 tablespoons white vinegar

3 large eggs

2 slices cooked ham

2 tablespoons grated Parmesan

Directions

  1. Preheat the broiler. Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium skillet over medium heat and cook the peppers until soft, about 5 minutes; set aside and keep warm.
  2. Split the English muffin and brush the cut sides with some of the remaining olive oil. Toast lightly under the broiler and keep warm.
  3. Bring 2-inches of water to a boil in a large skillet and add the vinegar. Reduce the water to a simmer and gently break the eggs into the water. Cook until the whites are set and feel firm, about 3 minutes. Meanwhile, put the toasted English muffins on a plate and top them with the ham. Remove the eggs with a slotted spoon and place them onto the ham. Add the cooked peppers and sprinkle over the Parmesan. Now that's a Poached Egg!!
