Breakfast Bell Peppers

Makes 4

recipe by BuzzFeed Tasty

INGREDIENTS

2 bell peppers

1 tablespoon kosher salt

1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper

1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

½ cup finely chopped chives

4 large eggs

4 strips cooked bacon

½ cup shredded cheddar cheese

INSTRUCTIONS

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. On a cutting board, split the bell peppers in half from stem to base. Cut out the stem and the seeds. Transfer halved peppers to a baking tray, cavity side up. Sprinkle each half with salt and pepper.

3. Bake for 15–20 minutes, until peppers are slightly soft.

4. Take the peppers out of the oven. Sprinkle the mozzarella and half of the chives evenly among the four pepper halves. Crack eggs into the center of each pepper. Sprinkle the salt, pepper, bacon, cheddar, and remaining chives on top of the eggs.

5. Bake for 15–20 minutes, until egg whites are set. Serve!

2. Sick of salads for lunch? Jump on the new power bowl trend.

3. Experiment with nutritional yeast to add a cheesy flavor to soups, stews, and pasta dishes — it's dairy-free and has fewer calories than real cheese.

Nutritional yeast is sold as dry, yellow flakes, and you can get it at most supermarkets.
