As promised I’m keeping up with the healthy trend for recipes on the blog. This was breakfast on Saturday, it won the presentation, healthy & simple categories so of course I had to share. I call these stuffed peppers for breakfast. They can be made in so many different ways & are great for serving guests or just yourself.
Stuffed Breakfast Peppers (I made two so you will have to adjust your portions accordingly)
2 Green bell peppers
2 thin slices ham
1 tsp black pepper
1/4 cup mozzarella cheese
Feel free to get creative & add anything you would like, this is just what I had on hand.
Preheat your oven to 350.
Wash, cut the tops off of the peppers & clean them out. Line them with ham – do not let ham stick out the edges too far or it will burn in the oven. Add an egg, spinach & black pepper to each. If you don’t want scrambled eggs you don’t have to mess with breaking the yolk but I prefer mine scrambled. Stick these in the oven for about twenty minutes.
After twenty minutes top with cheese on the pepper “lid” & the eggs. Bake for another ten minutes. Remove for the oven & serve immediately.
They turned out great, minus the burned edges on the ham. Don’t do that. Again it was my fault because I had too much sticking over the outside.
