Breakfast Stuffed Peppers

I have been really into making veggie scrambles for breakfast lately…filling, yummy, and nutritious. They take some extra time, though, because of chopping the veggies. When I saw this recipe on npr.org, I knew I’d be adding it to my normal breakfast rotation. It’s quick and easy with just a few ingredients. I make 4 at a time but you can adjust the quantity easily.

Ingredients:

  • 4 red bell peppers (any color bell pepper works)
  • 16 oz bag frozen, chopped spinach (I get mine from Trader Joe’s)
  • 4 eggs

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line the bottom of a baking dish with foil.

2. Cut off the top of each pepper. Remove the seeds.

3. Place peppers into baking dish and bake for about 15 minutes.

4. Meanwhile, defrost the spinach in the microwave. Squeeze the moisture out of the spinach.

6. Remove peppers from oven and stuff the bottom 1/2 with cooked spinach.

7. Crack an egg into the top 1/2 of each pepper.

8. Bake for ~20 min longer.

      If we are using fresh spinach do we need to pre cook it all or can it just go straight into the pepper? Also would straight egg whites work just the same?

        Hi Lindsay! You probably want to still wilt it down because it’ll shrink and probably get really wet inside the pepper. Egg whites might work the same but I haven’t tested it with that. Remember, the yolk has lots of amazing nutrition in it! ;)

    Confession time! I can’t stand cooked spinach (or cooked greens). I’m wondering of turkey sausage with some chopped onions would also work… thoughts? Or do you have any suggestions for substitutions?

      Hi Linda…you can use a tool like MyFitDay to type in the values. I don’t offer that at this time.

    These look awesome, and I can see mixing them with the Turkey sausage/onion ones Liesl suggested. Now what would be the logical serving size though….
