Stuffed Peppers...for Breakfast!


Eggs are a quick and easy way to have a filling breakfast, so I love making them. I'm always looking for new ideas, so when I came across a recipe for stuffed peppers in this book, I decided to give it a try.

I love how pretty these peppers are! What a great idea for a brunch or serving overnight guests.

Ingredients (for 2)

  • 3 eggs, beat with 2 tsp milk
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 2 tbsp red pepper, chopped
  • 2 small green (or red) peppers, tops chopped off and insides cleaned
  • cooking spray
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 tsp shredded cheese; I used cheddar

Directions

  • Microwave peppers on high for 2.5 minutes to soften; set aside
  • Spray frying pan with cooking spray; heat on medium
  • Add onions and peppers; saute 1-2 minutes
  • Add eggs, scramble; add salt and pepper while scrambling
  • Once eggs are done, fill each pepper cup with the eggs. Top with cheese and put under the broiler for 1 minute. Serve immediately.

I can't wait to make these again. You could make any kind of scrambled eggs you like, using any number of ingredients - veggies, meats, different cheeses, etc.

I love this recipe and think I am going to make it for Easter weekend for my husband!

They are just adorable - I might try to find small colorful peppers such as Red, Yellow and Green and then stuff each one to make it look like Easter Eggs! :-)

Thanks so much for the great suggestion.
