Recipe of the Month: Egg & Avocado Bells

Avocado Egg Bell Pepper

Here’s a simple breakfast (or lunch or dinner or snack) recipe for you. All you need are three ingredients, plus some salt and pepper. You can make these day of or prepare a plethora for the week ahead.

There are two ways to do this. One cooks the pepper and the egg and one (my favorite) leaves the pepper raw and crisp, stuffed with a scrambled egg. I’ll give you both.

Ingredients:
  1. Bell Peppers (any color will do)
  2. Egg whites (or whole eggs if you prefer)
  3. Avocados
Directions for Cooked Pepper and Egg:
  1. Prepare your peppers by slicing in them in half and removing the seeds and stem.
  2. Prepare a cooking sheet with cooking spray and place the peppers on the sheet, opening up.
  3. If using a whole egg, crack one egg into each pepper half. If using egg whites, put about 3 tablespoons egg whites into each half, depending on how big the peppers are.
  4. Sprinkle salt and pepper over the eggs.
  5. Bake at 350 for about 20-30 minutes, or until the eggs are fully cooked.
  6. While they’re baking, cut the avocados in half and spoon out the good stuff.
  7. Once the peppers and eggs are cooked, place a spoonful of Avocado onto each egg pepper.
  8. Serve or store.
Directions for Cooked Egg and Crisp Pepper:
  1. Prepare your peppers by slicing in them in half and removing the seeds and stem.
  2. Pour the egg whites or beaten eggs into a warm skillet and cook thoroughly.
  3. While they’re cooking, cut the avocados in half and spoon out the good stuff.
  4. Once the  eggs are cooked, spoon them into the pepper halves.
  5. Place a spoonful of Avocado onto each egg pepper.
  6. Serve or store.

The amount of everything will depend on the number of servings or meals you’re making. If I’m preparing these for my breakfast for the week, I’d do one pepper per meal, filled with egg whites and topped with avocado as described. Typically, 3 tablespoons egg whites equals one egg.

You can play with this, and if you’re counting macros, points, or any variation thereof, you can always add some more eggs or avocado to the bell pepper or to the side. Enjoy and make it your own!
