Omelette Stuffed Peppers

I’ve been wanting to make these omelet stuffed peppers for a while, but we haven’t had a free weekend to enjoy them. Finally we had a free weekend morning, so I surprised Mr. K with them.

My omelets usually consist of eggs, cheese, peppers, mushrooms, ham/sausage/or bacon. These peppers are stuffed with all the classic omelet ingredients, minus the diced peppers since the omelet is already stuffed in the peppers.

They are bite-sized, colorful, and easy to eat and make. I made enough for some on-the-go weekday breakfasts too.

I had some egg beaters (the Real Egg Product cartons from Costco) that I needed to use up, so I used them for these eggs, though you can use fresh eggs too. The nice thing about the egg beaters is that they cook really fast so that I didn’t have to cook these as long in the oven.

Omelet stuffed Peppers

Ingredients:

8 baby bell peppers
1/2 cup shredded cheese (I used mozzarella)
3 strips of precooked bacon (you can also use ham or sausage)
about 1/2 cup egg beaters/real egg product (you can also use two fresh eggs, beaten and add 2 tbsp of milk to make it more fluffy)
pinch of pepper
pinch of salt

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 425F. Cut tops off peppers and remove any inside seeds. Place peppers into an oven-safe item that can keep the peppers upright. I used my mini popover pan. You might be able to use a muffin pan but will probably need to place something in the cups to stabilize the peppers.
2. In a small bowl, mix together egg product (or beaten eggs and milk), cheese, bacon, salt and pepper. Pour mixture into peppers, about 3/4 full. You can sprinkle additional cheese and bacon on top to make them look prettier.Eggs will rise slightly when cooking so careful not to overflow.
3. Bake for 10-15 minutes until eggs are cooked. The egg beaters take only about 10 minutes whereas real eggs take about 15 minutes.
