Breakfast Casserole Stuffed Mini Bell Peppers 3

When I received the mini bell peppers from Baloian Farms it did not take long for me to figure out how to use them in a brunch recipe. Oddly enough my mind immediately went to stuffed peppers even though growing up I could not get far enough away from anything resembling stuffed peppers (or stuffed cabbage, which I still dislike). Thankfully my taste buds grew up and I decided to make a breakfasty version by stuffing the mini bell peppers with breakfast casserole.

The real challenge was deciding upon which recipe to use as my dad has a slew of different breakfast casserole recipes. I ended up picking this one which uses honey, as I thought it would bring out the sweetness of the bell peppers – and I was right. These sweet mini bell peppers are also stuffed with bacon, broccoli, onion, cheddar cheese and an herb seasoned stuffing mix. Lots of flavor in a little package.

Serves 6

Ingredients:

4 slices of bacon

1-1/2 cups fresh broccoli florets, chopped

1 small Vidalia onion, diced

4 cups seasoned stuffing mix

1-1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

18 Baloian Farms mini bell peppers, sliced in half lengthwise

Directions:

  1. In a medium skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon until crispy. Remove and drain on paper towel-lined plate. Add the broccoli and onion to the bacon grease and saute for 3-5 minutes. Remove from heat.
  2. In a large bowl whisk together the eggs, milk, honey, and salt and pepper *. Gently stir in the stuffing mix, 3/4 cup cheese, crumbled bacon, and sautéed mixture. Cover tightly and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease a rimmed baking sheet with nonstick spray.
  4. Stuff filling into the mini bell peppers, pressing in slightly. Place on prepared baking sheet. Sprinkle tops with remaining 3/4 cup cheese and bake for 30-40 minutes, or until golden and puffed.
