Recipe Notes

  • After baking, try to keep the pepper halves level so that when you crack the egg, it doesn’t run out.
  • Add spices like garlic or red pepper for extra flavor.
  • Diced onion is another good addition.
  • Use any kind of cheese you like.

Here’s how to make it:

  • Cut bell peppers in half and remove the ribs and seeds.
  • Place the peppers on a greased baking sheet, cut side up. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with half of the salt and pepper. In a preheated 400-degree F oven, bake the peppers for 15 minutes. They will start to brown around the edges.
  • Remove the baking sheet from the oven and carefully crack 1 egg into each pepper half. Keep the halves as level as possible so the egg doesn’t spill onto the pan.
  • Season with the remaining salt and pepper and then top with a sprinkle of cheese.
  • Bake until the egg whites are set, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle with cilantro, if desired.
