Paleo Breakfast Stuffed Peppers Recipe

Breakfast Stuffed Peppers |

Paleo Breakfast Stuffed Peppers are a great way to change up your morning meal routine!

These require a bit of prep time, so I usually make them on weekends when I’m not super busy. If you want to bump up the protein content, mix in some grass-fed ground meat with the spinach or layer it between the spinach and egg.

      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….

    I make something very similar to these, not sure if they are Paleo but we are on a “no carb” diet for diabetes. I make lots of stuffed peppers on the weekend with similar stuffing ingredients EXCEPT THE EGG (this is added later when you actually want breakfast). My stuffing also has bacon, feta, squash or sweet potato diced small, and some dill … yummm. Bake all the peppers on the weekend, 350 F for 30 min covered with foil, cool down, and then these keep well in the fridge all week (if they last that long).

    At breakfast time when we need quick food, we microwave one or two peppers for 2-3 min, just to heat through, make an indent in the stuffing and crack a fresh egg on top – then put under the broiler (put rack up high, 4 inches from broiler) until your egg is how you like it, about 5 min or so. I love a runny yolk, which is gooey deliciousness on these juicy peppers. This makes for a fast breakfast and works really well for our schedules.
