Recipe: Baked Eggs in a Bell Pepper Cup

If you’re feeling tired of the same old, traditional breakfasts (think: scrambled eggs and hash browns, pancakes, or cereal), why not change it up if you have a bell pepper in your fridge?! This recipe is completely customizable depending on what you have in stock. You can add ground meat, assorted veggies that you’d normally put in an omelette, or keep it simple with just one egg and a bell pepper.

You can make it two ways: slice the pepper down the middle, and put an egg into each half and bake it, or you can cut the top off and add your egg.

Step 1: Cut the top off of the pepper and core it. If you want, chop up whatever’s left and put it into the bell pepper
Step 2: Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Pop an egg into the pepper and season to your liking! (I added salt, pepper, cayenne powder, oregano flakes)

Step 3: Bake for about 30-40 minutes or until the egg whites have turned white!

I don’t know about you, but mine came out just a tad bit soggy, perhaps since I put so much diced peppers into my pepper cup and it added too much moisture (hey, you learn from your mistakes, right? haha) but it still tasted good! Maybe next time I’ll add different things into my cup to see how I can change things up 🙂
