Egg in a Hole, Revamped

I saw this recipe on The Novice Chef's blog and had to try it. This was very good and a fun, different way to eat eggs. The only changes I would definitely make are in the flavors. Asiago cheese and balsamic vinegar are so strong that they overpower everything else. Next time I might try parmesan or a medium cheddar cheese and I'd leave off the balsamic or use a much smaller amount. Nick and I both liked this one and will absolutely make it again, with our adjustments.

Egg in a Hole, Revamped
*From The Novice Chef

1 large bell pepper, seeded and sliced into 1/2 inch rings
4-5 eggs (one per pepper ring)
Asiago cheese
Balsamic vinegar
Salt and pepper
Olive oil

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add in bell pepper rings and cook for 30 seconds on each side to soften a little. Crack an egg in the center of each ring. Season with salt, pepper, and a dash of cayenne. Cook the eggs for about 3 minutes on the first side, until the white of the egg is mostly cooked.

Carefully flip the rings and cook for an additional 1-2 minutes on the other side. Remove from the pan and top with asiago cheese and a drizzle of balsamic vinegar. You could also try parmesan or a medium cheddar cheese and omit the balsamic.
