Breakfast Stuffed Peppers

Servings 4


• 4 large bell peppers
• 1 tablespoon olive oil
• 1/2 medium onion, diced
• 8 ounces baby bella mushrooms, chopped
• 8 ounces chicken sausage
• ½ cup part skim mozzarella cheese, shredded
• 8 Eggs
• Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
• Chopped cilantro and sliced radishes for topping


Preheat oven to 375F. Slice peppers in half lengthwise, then use a small knife to carefully remove the seeds and membranes. Arrange peppers cut side up in a large baking dish.

Heat olive oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and mushrooms. Cook for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions have softened and mushrooms have cooked down.

Add sausage and cook, breaking the meat apart until it’s fully cooked through, about 8 minutes.

Transfer the cooked sausage and vegetable mixture to a large mixing bowl. Add shredded cheese and stir.

Spoon the mixture inside the bell peppers, filling each about 3/4 full. Make sure to leave a little room so the egg will fit in nice and securely.

Carefully crack an egg into the top of each bell pepper. Season with salt and pepper.

Bake uncovered for 25-28 minutes for a runny yolk, or longer for a fully cooked yolk.

Top with chopped cilantro and sliced radishes. Serve immediately.
