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.

There’s only a couple days left in #BrunchWeek so make sure you enter the giveaways featured at the end of this post, and tell me what is your favorite brunch dish! There are far too many awesome prizes for you to pass up on this opportunity.

Oh your peppers look so fresh and fantastic, nice recipe!

I also made stuffed peppers with my mini peppers, but never would have thought to make a brunch version. This is so smart, and something different than the standard egg casseroles for brunch (although I like those too). Love this!
