One Eyed Martha

Tia left this morning, so it’s extra quiet in the house. I couldn’t sleep, so I got up early and got the day started. I had planned to make this for her, but she left too early. A couple weeks ago I noticed a recipe on the Novice Chef blog that caught my eye. It’s written by the wife of a friend, and I found it interesting that this one was tagged “ass-friendly”. I loved that.

One Eyed Martha, a variation on One Eyed Jack made with toast. I bought a red pepper Sunday, but forgot the cheese, so I got that last night. I cut the pepper and tossed it in the pan


While this was going, I grabbed eggs and a minute later cracked them inside. It didn’t work out as well as expected


To be fair I wasn’t sure how to easily hold down the red pepper sides while cracking the egg.  Still it was fine. They cooked up with some salt and pepper:


I cut some asiago cheese and then added that on top with a little drizzled balsamic. It’s just for me so the glaze doesn’t really matter.


And of course, my moonshine hot sauce:


I think if I did this again, I’d scramble the eggs a touch first and them scoop them inside. I like scrambled better than fried eggs. It was yummy.
