Eggs Papin- Poached Eggs in bell pepper cup!

poached eggs in pressure cooker
A play off of the famous Eggs Benedict, these eggs are named after the inventor of the pressure cooker Denis Papin, and all veggie!
I made a mock Hollandaise inspired by a recipe published by Bon Apetit Magazine, with my own adjustments. The advantage of this fake Hollandaise sauce is that you don’t have to figure out what to do with the egg whites – since the original requires only yolks!The base of the peppers serve as little cups in which to poach the eggs! Save the rest of the peppers to make Peperonata to serve with, or on, dinner!
