Eggs in a bell pepper, who would have thought? This is delicious. You can garnish it with a little cheese of your choice or sliced avocado. This is called Breakfast Stuffed Bell Peppers, mostly because of the eggs, but you can eat this for lunch or dinner if you prefer.

This is a 1-2 person recipe, but you can make more - just double or triple the amounts!
