When you hear the words egg stuffed breakfast peppers, what comes to mind? There are many things you can stuff peppers with, but if you’ve never thought to stuff it with a sunny side up egg then you’re in for a real treat! This is one recipe you’ll want to have for more than just breakfast.
Easy Morning Breakfast
Mornings can be a whirlwind. Getting a wholesome breakfast on the table without fuss is a daily victory. Today, I’m excited to share a delightful recipe that’s both simple and satisfying: Egg-Stuffed Red Peppers.
These colorful bell peppers serve as edible cups for creamy eggs, making for a visually appealing and flavorful breakfast. It’s an easy, stress free start to the day that your family will adore.
These are incredibly easy to prepare, just as I mentioned. All you need is:
- Red Bell Peppers
- Shredded Cheese of Choice
- Olive Oil
- Salt & Pepper
Let’s Make these:
- Grab a couple of vibrant red bell peppers, a handful of eggs, your favorite shredded cheese, some trusty olive oil, and the classic duo of salt and pepper.
- Slice the peppers, deseed them, then arrange them, open side up, on a parchment-paper-lined tray. Drizzle them with a little olive oil, and into the oven they go!
- When they hit your preferred level of tenderness, bring them out and sprinkle on some shredded cheese.
- Gently nestle in the eggs without letting those yolks burst their bubble.
- Top it all off with a dash of salt and pepper and back into the oven they go. 🌟🍳
Doneness of the Egg: Your Choice!
The beauty of this recipe is that you have full control over how you like your eggs cooked. Follow these guidelines to achieve your preferred level of egg doneness:
- Runny Yolk Lovers: If you crave the delightful richness of a runny yolk, bake the stuffed peppers for approximately 10-12 minutes. This short baking time will set the egg whites while keeping the yolk gloriously liquid.
- Creamy Yolk Enthusiasts: For a creamier yolk with a slightly thicker consistency, bake the peppers for about 12-15 minutes. This additional baking time allows the yolk to become creamier without being fully cooked.
- Fully Cooked Yolk Fans: If you prefer a fully cooked yolk with no runniness whatsoever, extend the baking time to 15-18 minutes. This ensures that both the egg whites and yolks are thoroughly cooked.
Remember to keep an eye on your peppers as they bake to ensure your eggs reach the desired level of doneness. Whether you like your yolks runny, creamy, or fully cooked, this recipe is tailored to your taste! 🍳🌶️
