This Baked Eggs in Peppers recipe is super quick to prepare and make. It’s healthy and can be enjoyed on it’s own as breakfast, lunch, or cooked with a side dish (such as potatoes and vegetables) to become a delicious and healthy dinner. Due to living an extremely busy lifestyle, I go for the quickest option and if I’m eating this tasty dish as a main, simply double the serving.

Baked Eggs in Peppers

 1 Egg
 1 Sweet Bell Pepper
 1 Handful of grated cheese
 1 tbsp Olive oil
 Extras/seasoning of your choice (black pepper, salt, chives, thyme etc)

Cut the lid off the sweet bell pepper and remove the middle part.


If the pepper does not sit well flat, slice a tiny part off the bottom (ensure not to create a hole in the pepper), so it stands upright without falling over.


Spread the oil onto a baking tray, then sit the empty pepper on top.


Sprinkle half the cheese in the sweet bell pepper and crack the egg on top.


Careful sprinkle the remaining cheese around the sides on top of the egg leaving a gap in the middle for the yolk to cook without being covered.


Add your extras and seasoning as you see fit.


Bake for 10-12 minutes at around 200 degrees and voila!
