Breakfast in a Bell Pepper

Breakfast in a Bell Pepper


3 bell peppers, halved and seeded

6 whole eggs

2 tbsp chopped green onion

2 cups fresh baby spinach, chopped

1 cup shredded cheese; divided

1 zucchini; chopped

1/2 tsp lemon pepper

1/2 tsp garlic powder


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, green onions, spinach, ½ cup cheese and zucchini with a whisk until combined.
  3. Lay the peppers in a lightly greased baking dish (whatever size works best for you--make sure they are a litle snug in the baking dish so they don't move too much and spill).
  4. Divide your egg mixture between your peppers and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cover with tin foil and bake for 45-50 minutes, or until eggs are set.
