I was craving a Mexican inspired breakfast and had some left over bulgur that needed to be used and thus the Stuffed Breakfast Pepper was born.
Recipe: Serves 1
Preheat oven to 375.
*If you prefer your peppers to be more soft and sweet instead of crunchy then it would be best to cook the bell pepper for a few minutes before stuffing it. Im guessing maybe 5-8 minutes at 375. You could do this the night before.
In a bowl, microwave a cup of cooked bulgur until hot and dry, about 80 seconds. Add 1 raw egg, some chopped onions, some chopped tomato, 1/3 cup shredded cheese, salt, and mix together. If you like spicy food, stir in your favorite hot sauce or sriracha. Also, if you have any taco or fajita seasoning, throw that in there!
Hollow out a bell pepper (I like yellow for this dish because it is more sweet). and stuff with the bulgur-egg-etc mixture. Bake for about 15 minutes (this is a guess… check it).
Top with salsa or sour cream, or just eat it plain!
Bulgur * Keeps the digestive tract healthy with lots of fiber.
Bell pepper * High concentration of vitamins and antioxidants.
Eggs * Do not fear the egg yolk. The protein is in the egg white, but the taste and vitamins and minerals resides in the orange stuff.
