Breakfast Stuffed Bell Peppers

This is a great breakfast on the fly recipe that you can add whatever you like to really. It can easily be a Vegetarian recipe by leaving out the meat, and you can be as flexible as you like with what goes into it. Just think omelette fillings and you cant go wrong with these. Personally I will make a few of these in on a Sunday morning and keep them in the fridge so I can have one with a cup of coffee in the mornings and it doesn’t take up  much time at all.

Ingredients

  • 2 medium (120 grams) bell peppers
  • 4 slices (30 grams) bacon, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup (2 ounces or 35 grams) sliced mushrooms
  • 2 cups (2 ounces or 60 grams) loosely packed fresh spinach
  • 6 large (50 grams each) eggs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1/4 cup (1 ounce or 30 grams) grated Cheddar cheese
  • Fresh black pepper and sea salt

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F.

Slice bell peppers in half, remove interior stem and seeds. Place in a 2-quart baking dish. Set aside. (If bell pepper bottoms are very rounded, place crumbled foil in between so peppers remain level when filled and baked.)

Cook bacon in a large skillet over medium heat for 4 minutes or until crispy. Remove bacon, and drain on paper towels. Drain off all but 1 teaspoon bacon fat. In the same skillet, cook onions and mushrooms over medium heat about 4–5 minutes or until tender. Add spinach, and cook for 2 minutes, tossing occasionally with tongs. Drain excess liquid. Stir in bacon. Spoon mixture evenly into prepared pepper halves. Top each pepper with 1 tablespoon cheese.

Whisk together eggs, salt and pepper. Pour evenly into peppers. Bake 25–30 minutes, until eggs are set.
