Serve with whole grain toast and a small salad for a comforting breakfast-for-dinner. Be sure to leave the stems on the peppers when halving and coring—this helps to hold in the egg as the pepper roasts and softens.

  • Prep time 15 minutes
  • Total time 30 minutes
  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 large red peppers
  • 1/3 cup shredded Havarti cheese
  • 2 green onions thinly sliced (white and green parts separated)
  • 4 eggs
  • pinch each salt and pepper

Method

Leaving stems intact, halve and core red peppers. Arrange, cut sides down, on foil-lined rimmed baking sheet. Bake in 425?F (220?C) oven just until beginning to soften, about 10 minutes.

Turn red peppers cut sides up; sprinkle with one-quarter of the Havarti and the white parts of green onions. Crack 1 egg into each red pepper half; sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Bake in 425?F (220?C) oven until egg whites are just set yet yolks are still runny, 8 to 10 minutes. Sprinkle with remaining Havarti and green parts of green onions. Broil until cheese is melted, about 1 minute.
