I haven’t always loved peppers but after baby #5 came along I couldn’t get enough of them. And once baby #6 came along I really started to love spice. Put those cravings together with my always-favourite eggs, and the taste is just amazing.
I love trying new recipes and finding new ways to add eggs to my diet. Given all the benefits of eggs (boost your vitamins, loose some weight and help prevent breast cancer? YES, please!), we’ve been racking our brains trying to find some new delicious ways to add some eggs into our meals!
In these Spicy Egg-Stuffed peppers you get a variety of tastes that just explode in your mouth. The spice may be a little too much for some, but if you’d like to create these for yourself, here’s how:
- 4 Large Eggs
- 1/8 teaspoon of baking powder
- pinch of salt
- pinch of pepper
- 1/4 cup of milk
- 1/4 teaspoon of garlic
- yellow, red and green peppers (cut however many you’d wish)
- red scotch bonnet (finely, diced and small)
- finely diced onion (however much you desire)
- 1/8 cup of shredded marble cheese
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
- In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine eggs, milk and baking powder.
- Whisk gently until baking powder is dissolved.
- Add your dry ingredients and mix well.
- Add your peppers and scotch bonnets and set aside.
- Cut the tops off of whichever peppers you wish to use. (generally about 1/4 ” down).
- Be sure to clean out all seeds and the whites from the sides of the peppers.
- Place peppers open side up in a muffin tin and fill halfway with egg and pepper mixture.
- Add half the cheese to each pepper and fill to top with the rest of egg mixture.
- Cook 35-40 minutes on middle rack.
Delicious! And although my kids couldn’t eat them because of the scotch bonnets (you can omit), they were really begging to try them! I think if you just swapped them out for something else, it would be just as great but not as spicy!
Not only are eggs delicious they have many important roles in our lives. They help keep us healthy by providing vitamins, minerals and calories, which is a really great reason to add eggs to your daily diet.
