Breakfast Stuffed Peppers bring the breakfast favorites into a warm pepper!
Is anyone else in shock that we are nearly into February? I’m a little bit too excited too because I am so anxious for spring.
I used to love winter, but I am just ready for spring clothes and being able to take the kids outside more. In the meantime though, I’ve been in the kitchen testing new recipes including this yummy one I’m sharing today!
I have been craving stuffed peppers lately, but I wanted to mix them up a bit and make them a great brunch dish too. Of course, these make a great breakfast for dinner too. All these cravings led me to Breakfast Stuffed Peppers!
I decided to adapt my stuffed pepper recipe to use sausage instead along with eggs. I used turkey sausage as opposed to regular sausage to cut down on all those calories.
Then, I simply added a few spices to give it a little more flavor. Next instead of my typical rice in stuffed peppers, I replaced that with eggs.
Once I had them all stuffed and ready to go, they simply bake in the oven for about 30 minutes and out comes a delicious breakfast or dinner!
Are you ready for this easy dish? I know I am ready to make these again now!
Time for dinner!

Freezer Cooking Instructions - if you are making these for the freezer, assemble the peppers but DO NOT cook them until you are ready to serve them. So do not preheat the oven, just assemble them and store them. When ready to serve, let them defrost for about an hour or less and then bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes.
