So I know this is going to surprise you but my summer was actually full of pudding pops, homemade ice cream, no-bake desserts and slushy drinks.

As the seasons are changing though I’m starting to think more about back to school (and it’s back to work for my husband who was home for almost 2 months!) and back to Real Life. As in, not Summer Life. Though it would be okay if Summer Life was Real Life.

I just had way too much fun eating making all of those sweet treats. You know?

But people can’t live off of pudding pops and ice cream and so I’m going to be getting into more Real Life recipes.

So I was making these peppers and the bottom of my peppers were a little uneven — this resulted in a little egg spillage. I would recommend making sure your peppers are snug in the pan so they don’t move and spill too much, or you could even prop them up with little balls of tin foil if you are having trouble filling them!

I would love to hear what your go-to recipes are for the busy weeks ahead!

Breakfast Stuffed Peppers -- Oven or Slow Cooker
 
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
 
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 4 bell peppers, halved and seeded
  • 5 eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • ¾ tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp chopped green onion
  • ⅛ cup chopped frozen spinach, thawed
  • 1 cup cheese, divided
  • 4 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, milk, salt, green onion, spinach, ½ cup cheese and bacon with a whisk until combined.
  3. Lay your peppers in a lightly greased baking dish (whatever size works -- you want them to be a little snug so they don't move too much and spill). Divide your egg mixture between your peppers and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Cover with tin foil and bake for 45-50 minutes, until eggs are set.
Slow Cooker:
  1. Line slow cooker with tin foil. Place peppers in slow cooker and fill. Cook on low for 3-4 hours or until eggs are set.
Notes
* You can easily substitute fresh -- I would increase the amount to ¼-1/2 cup.

    Hi Ashley! I’m a big fan of stuffed peppers and I always use either red or yellow because they are sweeter and “meatier”. And I add spinach to dishes whenever I can (along with cheese, of course)! I made some pretty tasty ones a while back with chorizo and quinoa.

    These stuffed peppers look so good! I can´t believe you can make them in a slow cooker too! I don´t have much confidence when it comes to my Crockpot but I´m sure the more I use it, the more I would be bold to make something like this. Pinned!

    I totally know how you feel, the only thing I want to do is bake all the time and then eat it. But I do love eating actual food that doesn’t involve sugar too and these stuffed peppers sound great!

    Your husband gets two months off in the summer?! I want his job! Really, I want no job and every month off though, haha! My breakfast usually consists of cereal and milk, but I’m always drooling over fun breakfast like this one! I think I need to start making them for myself :)
