Stuffed Breakfast Peppers

Pepper breakfast

I have mentioned before that for me breakfast is the most important meal of the day because: 1) my parents always made me eat breakfast before school, even if that meant waking up at 5:00 am when my first class was at 7:00 am, and 2) the health benefits of starting your day with a delicious meal are many. However, there doesn’t seem to be as many ideas for breakfast as there are for lunches and dinners out there. That’s why I am always trying to come up with new things to make my breakfasts more exciting. Because, let’s face it, if your breakfast is not exciting, it is easier to skip it or opt for a less healthier option at the drive-thru or doughnut shop. Here I present to you these healthy and delicious bell peppers stuffed with Huevos con Chorizo.

  • yummmm, i adore chorizo and can only imagine how scrummy these taste! Dont think you could have a much better brekkie (and thats coming from a complete porridge addict 🙂 )

  • did you put water into the deep dish? or cook it without water?

  • omg this looks amazing, i could have breakfasts like this every day!!!!

  • Breakfast for me is very important also and it does need to be pancakes and waffles. As a blogger I eat EVERYTHING for breakfast. These stuffed peppers sound especially appealing.

  • Looks delicious! Would I be able to add potatoes to this? Like shredded hash browns?
