Stuffed Breakfast Peppers - These peppers are super easy to toss together and taste great. I was a little surprised with how filling and satisfying these were.

Summary: These peppers are super easy to toss together and taste great. I was a little surprised with how filling and satisfying these were. I’m generally a carbivore in the morning. You know, similar to a carnivore… but with carbs rather than meat.

Stuffed Breakfast Peppers

Ingredients

  • 2 Medium Bell Peppers, Halved
  • 1/2 Medium Bell Pepper, Chopped
  • 1/2 C. Onion, Chopped
  • 2 Whole Large Eggs
  • 1/2 C. (About 4) Large Egg Whites
  • 1/2 C. Reduced Fat 2% Sharp Cheddar, Shredded
  • Salt & Pepper to Taste

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F. and cover a baking sheet with foil.
  2. Place the pepper halves on the prepared baking sheet, adjusting as best you can to level them. Set aside.
  3. Combine the chopped pepper, onion, eggs, and 1/4 c. of the cheese together in a medium bowl until well blended.
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  5. Divide the egg mixture evenly among the bell peppers.
  6. I got about 1/3 c. in each pepper. You don't want to fill them 'completely' since the peppers shrink and the eggs expand while baking.
  7. Bake for about 40-45 minutes or until the eggs have set and the peppers are cooked.
  8. You will probably have some spillage. No big deal!
  9. Top each with another tbsp. of cheese and continue to bake for another minute or two until the cheese has melted.
  10. Remove from the oven and serve warm with a side of salsa!
