Recipe: Baked Eggs in Peppers

Breakfast Recipes, Pre + Post Workout Recipes



Not only are these little pepper cups adorable, they are low-carb and high protein!  Making them is literally as simple as slicing peppers, cracking eggs inside with a little sprinkled cheese, and tossing them in the oven for 15-20 minutes.  You can futz around with the baking time depending on whether you prefer runny or hard egg yolks.  Great for those with gluten-sensitivities, too!


  • 2 sweet peppers
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheese
  • salt & pepper to taste
