Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Make Sauce:.
  2. Combine the ponzu sauce and the ketchup in a small saucepan. Add oregano. Heat to medium heat and simmer to reduce liquid, about 5 minutes. Set aside.
  3. Finely chop the radish and add to slightly cooled sauce (if using).
  4. Heat the olive oil and butter in a frying pan. Saute green bell pepper, onion, and cabbage over medium heat until tender and starting to brown, 5-8 minutes. Remove to serving plate, spreading out just a little to make nest for egg.
  5. In same pan add the 1 teaspoon oil or butter and saute the egg to desired doneness(turning over once).
  6. Place the egg over the sauteed veggies. Drizzle with the sauce(I used several tablespoons). Dig in and enjoy!
  7. Good served with a piece of toast.

I made this delicious recipe for breakfast. There were two of us, so I doubled the veggies and eggs, but made only one batch of sauce. Great use of contest ingredients. Love the tang. The only shortcoming is that the recipe says this is for four, when really it is for one only. Good luck! It was my good luck that I tried this.

I thought this was cute presentation and I thought the idea of veggies and eggs was a creative contest idea. My egg was well done due to a runny egg aversion, but the sauce and veggies kept things moist. The recipe was delightful, different, and delicious! It ended on my favorites list from the contest. Thank you for sharing your recipe and good luck!

This was easily one of my favorite recipes that I tried in this contest. I was so impressed with it, the flavor and textures were amazing. The sauce lingered nicely in your mouth, making me wish I had more. Were the ingredients off, yes, but I didn't care, I made the entire amount for myself and enjoyed it tremendously, it was an excellent breakfast. The sauce was the crowning glory for me, drizzled over the soft cooked egg, I thought that it was perfect, complimentary not over powering. I loved that sauce, so good. I did omit the optional radishes. Good luck in the contest.
