    2       lg           Round red peppers
    8                    Eggs
                         Salt and pepper
    2       tb           Unsalted butter
    1       c            Tomato sauce
 
   1. Select well-shaped peppers that will sit upright.
   Halve them crosswise and remove seeds.  Trim stems but
   do not make a hole. 2. Parboil peppers in simmering,
   salted water until just tender, then drain peppers.
   3. Break eggs 2 eggs into each pepper half.  Season
   and top with a 1/2 tablespoon slice of butter.  Place
   peppers in small baking pan, pour in 1 inch of hot
   poaching water, and bake briefly at 375 degrees until
   eggs set. 4. Ribbon with tomato sauce.
   
   My suggestions.  Try a spice such as Szechuan Style
   Pepper or Herb Pepper Blend instead of the salt and
   pepper.  (Szechuan is copied from the label of a
   McCormick spice jar.  Spell checker suggests the
   spelling Szechwan.)
   
   This also could be cooked at a low at a medium setting
   in a microwave oven.
