Red Pepper Sunny Side Up Eggs

Sunny side up eggs have to be one of the simplest foods to cook. Nevertheless, we’ve all had ones that are scorched on the bottom and raw on top, rubbery, or just plain greasy. So today, I’m sharing my tried-and-true method for how to cook sunny-side-up eggs. It’s quick and easy, and it doesn’t require any fancy equipment or special ingredients. All you’ll need is olive oil, eggs, and a good nonstick skillet! These eggs turn out bright red because of the red pepper that I use; almost looks like tomato sauce.

  • Frying pan

  • Small bowl


  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 tablespoon Extra Virgin olive oil

  • ¼ teaspoon sea salt

  • ½ teaspoon Aleppo Pepper Flakes

  • ½ teaspoon Kashmiri Chilli Powder


Heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the Aleppo Pepper Flakes and the Kashmiri Chilli to the olive oil. Do not burn because the red pepper will turn black.
While the oil is heating, crack the 2 eggs into a bowl.
Slowly add the eggs and fry until done. You can flip them and make them over-medium. Enjoy!


This recipe includes two kinds of red pepper: Aleppo Pepper Flakes and Kashmiri Chilli. One is mild, while the other carries a bit more heat. You can also substitute red pepper flakes, Cayenne pepper, and Hungarian Paprika instead.
