Before we get to my favorite new food obsession, I have to tell you that I just dropped my iPhone 5C and cracked the entire screen. Not just a little corner that’s barely noticeable. It’s like 34 plumbers bending over to fix one leaky faucet.

Crack for days.

I cannot tell you how many times I’ve dropped it without a scratch.  Thousands upon thousands. The odds have always been in my favor.  I felt invincible. I was the no-case, luckiest phone dropping girl on the planet. Until I wasn’t.

I guess I’m getting a new phone, y’all.  I’m not sure if I’m totally happy or kinda freaked out.  But I’ll figure it out.  Thinks always seem to workout just fine, and I’m certain this will be no exception.

But, let’s move on and get to my favorite new recipe, low-carb Sunshine Burgers! Well, it might be stretching it beyond it’s elasticity to call it a recipe, but we’ll just leave it there.

Rock your burger world with these low-carb Sunshine Burgers. They are a great way to mix it up when you're at a loss for what to fix for dinner!

I pretty much eat low-carb all the time. Except for last winter when my sanity flew the coop unexpectedly and I lived on home-made nachos.  Who knew binge eating corn chips everyday would add 20 pounds?

I also totally upper-limited when I leaned to do a headstand in yoga and totally quit going everyday.


Well, thank God the insanity is over and sane Gwen is back, yoga and all. I’m not quite ready for the headstand yest, but I’m working to get it back.

Again, back to the recipe.

It’s very simple.

While you are grilling your burgers however you want (we grill outside 24/7 – 365.  Unless there is a foot of snow. Then I’m not going near that thing), slice a red or green or yellow or orange bell pepper.

Over medium heat, add a little olive oil to your pan.  Place your pepper rings in the pan like so:

Then crack an egg into each pepper ring.  You might want to turn the heat down just a little so the egg will cook evenly.

As you can see, a little bit of the while will go Shawshank on you, but don’t worry.  You can easily pull it off so you have pretty pepper rings.

Flip the rings over. Yes, they will flip very easily.  Or you can leave them sunny side up, if that’s your thing.  It’s not ours, so it’s all about that flip.

Now, just take your perfectly grilled burgers, plate them and slide a piece of sunshine atop.

My favorite is to serve them with my no-fail Guacamole – recipe forthcoming.

These are always a big hit and remind Morgan of the Gus Burgers at the White Spot in Charlottesville.  I’ve never eaten there, but I’ve seen it many times and heard the stories.  Oh, the stories.

Have you ever had a Gus Burger?
