A New Quick and Healthy Breakfast Idea: Bell Pepper Eggs


Good morning crashers! I’m stopping in for a short post about a new breakfast idea I found on the interwebs. I can’t take credit for this clever way to cook eggs, but thought it was so fun and easy that I had to share.


Just clean and cut bell peppers into one inch circles. Place in a pan and let them cook for about a minute so that they start to get tender.


Now comes the fun part…crack an egg in the middle of each pepper. Voila! I had an issue with the egg spilling out of the sides a little bit, but just because they look mess doesn’t mean they don’t taste good. I let the eggs cook for a few minutes on one side before trying to flip them over.


The entire process took less than ten minutes. The best part? These puppies are portable. I popped them in a plastic bag and was out the door with a nutritious, healthy breakfast on-the-go. Try it and let me know what you think!

    I saw these on pinterest and thought they were so cute! If you take them on the go, though, how do you eat them? With your hands? I’d be afraid it would get messy without a knife + fork.

      I just eat them with my hands and have a paper towel handy. It’s a bit messy but not prohibitively so. Give it a go!
