Best Keto Fried Chorizo Egg Bell Pepper Rings

78 ratings

There’s something aesthetically pleasing and satisfying about cutting into a perfectly fried egg. Runny yolk combined with slightly salty and spicy chorizo pork sausage makes for the ultimate breakfast. Fry those babies up in some red bell pepper slices, and you don’t even need to season the egg! That’s all – just three ingredients, and you have a deliciously nutritious and yummy meal! For your enjoyment, 2 fried eggs in bell pepper rings with chorizo counts as 1 serving. If you cook your eggs well done, you can meal prep the recipe and reheat it once it’s needed.

Tips for the recipe

To ensure your eggs don’t run out from under your bell pepper rings in the pan, make sure to slice the pepper rings with a flat edge. Lay the bell pepper rings on an unused pan to check that they’re level. You don’t have to be perfect - watch the eggs while they cook in your pepper rings. You can use a spatula to fix any leaking egg while it cooks.

What type of chorizo should I use?

Look for raw, seasoned chorizo that comes either in a casing or ground finely in a package. You may find this in the refrigeration aisle in your grocery store near other cased sausages or breakfast meat. When you cook the chorizo, you’ll remove it from the casing and break it up in your pan using a spatula.

Are bell peppers Keto-friendly?

If you’re on a strict Keto diet, a medical professional may have advised you to avoid bell peppers. Never go against what a doctor asks you to do. However, if you’re doing a “dirty” Keto diet, bell peppers are actually a great vegetable to eat in moderation. This Keto breakfast recipe uses thinly sliced peppers that add few carbs to your meal.

Recipe Steps

12 min

  • Step 1

    Lightly coat a small pan in pan spray, and heat the pan on medium-high heat. Cook the chorizo sausage until it is cooked through and slightly crispy – about 5 minutes. Transfer the chorizo aside for later, but save the drippings in the pan.
    Step 1
  • Step 2

    Slice 2 rings of red bell pepper per serving. They should be about ½-inch thick. Return the small pan to medium-low heat. Place the bell pepper rings in, making sure there is no space between the pan and the bell pepper (you don’t want any egg to run under the peppers).
    Step 2
  • Step 3

    Crack a single egg into each bell pepper ring. Fry the eggs to your preferred doneness. Keep the heat on medium-low, and frequently check to make sure the eggs aren’t burning. Slow and steady wins the race!
    Step 3
  • Step 4

    To serve the chorizo egg pepper rings, crumble the cooked chorizo over the fried eggs. You can chop some cilantro and serve that on top as well. A squeeze of lime juice would also taste good! Enjoy the meal hot.

      Really good and easy. I did add cilantro and got sauce. But I tried it first the way the recipe was and still very good. Added a little bacon too 😋

        I didn’t get fancy just cooked my sausage, then made a scramble. Yummy!

          Always a reliable and easy recipe. I find it turns out better when I crack the egg into a ramekin and pour it into the pepper ring that way. Then I let it cook for a bit and flip it for 7 seconds. Perfect egg!

                      The chorizo I bought came out soupy so I drained off as much grease as I could just so I could get the meat to hold somewhat together. I used 1 egg and scrambled it. It taste good and looks pretty on the plate with the cilantro on top!

                        How does your chorizo coming out greasy, reflect negatively in any way towards the recipe, and warrant a 3/5 review???

                        Man, this was AMAZING! The only change I made was frying the pepper for about 3 mins on each side before adding the egg, just so they were a little softer throughout. Totally a great and delicious recipe!

                                  I was unable to find this chorizo, so I made my own. Found some chorizo spice recipes and mixed it with some lean ground pork, it came out great.

                                    So good. I cooked the rings for a few minutes before adding the egg.

                                        Trying this for first time. Cooked peppers a minute before adding egg. Added a sprinkle of cheddar on top. Sooooo yummy.
