Eggs are a big staple when it comes to cooking some healthy meals. It is a common food that you will find in most households, whether they are hard boiled or mixed into hamburger meat for a meatloaf. Eggs are so versatile. They can be whisked, boiled, chopped and mashed into a wide array of foods and also act as a binding agent in some meat dishes and baked goods. You can also make noodles with them! (Look for that recipe in future posts)
One of my favorite recipes with eggs is to bake them with some peppers and cheese to make a quick and healthy breakfast.
2 bеll peppers, hаlvеd (ѕееdѕ removed)
8 еggѕ, lightlу bеаtеn (You can use just the egg whites also)
1/4 сup milk (I use whole or 2% milk, non-dairy milk will not work as well. It changes the consistency and often ends up being runny)
4 ѕliсеѕ of bасоn, cooked аnd crumbled
1 сup shredded chеddаr cheese
2 tbѕр. finеlу chopped chives, рluѕ more fоr garnish
frеѕhlу сrасkеd black рерреr
If you prefer a pepper on the sweeter side then choose an orange or red.
Don't be afraid to add some spice! Red pepper flakes, basil, parsley, garlic powder, onion powder and the like are always great choices.
You can swap out the chives for green onions, but be aware of a stronger onion flavor that green onions have.
