  1. In a large cast-iron or nonstick skillet, heat 1 teaspoon of oil over medium-high heat. Add bell pepper, then crack 1 egg into the middle of each pepper ring.

  2. Season with salt and pepper; cook for about 2 to 3 minutes, or until egg whites are mostly set but yolks are still runny. Gently flip and cook for 1 minute more for over easy.

  3. Sprinkle with parmesan and use a spatula to place each egg on a slice of toast.

  4. Toss salad greens with 1 teaspoon of oil and season with salt and pepper; serve alongside eggs.
