Roasted and Stuffed Bell Pepper with Cheese Egg and Meat

Stuffed Bell Pepper Recipe

If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen me sharing my food and recipes on Instagram Stories. Back in 2017, I started reevaluating my food choices and made a switch to a more plant-based, protein-rich, low carb and low sugar diet. I still indulge in sweets and carbs every once in a while – after all, breads are my weakness (especially sour-dough bread and croissants, yuuuummy) and chocolates are a must for when the Red Fairy visits (aka that time of the month) lol – but more often than not, I try to ingest more vegetables and protein. I don’t follow a specific diet, but I find that eating more vegetables and not a lot of carbs/sugar helps me sleep better, feel better and I don’t get sick as often.

PROCESS

  • Salute ground meat in garlic and onion until the meat is thoroughly cooked. You can also add tomato and red pepper to make it more flavorful. Set aside.
  • Prepare the bell pepper by washing it thoroughly and removing the top part including the stalk to make a hole. Don’t cut across because that would waste a lot of the bell pepper. Just carve a hole.
  • Remove all the seeds inside and clea thoroughly. Set aside.
  • Beat eggs. Set aside.
  • Assemble your bell pepper by putting a layer of meat inside, followed by cheese, then meat, then cheese again. Repeat until the bell pepper is full, with cheese as the top most layer.
  • Carefully pour in the egg inside the bell pepper. Move the pepper around to make sure the egg really gets inside the pepper.
  • Take your foil or cooking tray and add a bit of oil on the surface. Place stuffed bell pepper on top.
  • Cook in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes in medium heat, or until the skin of the bell pepper starts to brown.
  • Cool and enjoy!

For the cheese, I use a pre-grated one from the supermarket. The brand is Chizboy and it is a mix of Cheddar and Mozzarella.

As an alternative, you can use chicken or fish if you are not a fan of beef or pork. If you are a vegetarian, you can opt for mushroom and other vegetables such as broccoli or cauliflower, corn, carrots. I used yellow bell peppers here, although I’ve used green and red too and it turned out okay. I just personally prefer yellow bell peppers because I find that it is sweeter than red or green.
