Breakfast Pizza Baked Peppers

  • Serving Size3


    • 1 lb. ground Italian sausage
    • 1 cup sliced mushrooms, chopped
    • 4-5 basil leaves, torn
    • 6 eggs, whisked
    • Salt and pepper, to taste
    • ½ cup pizza sauce
    • 3 bell peppers, cut in half, seeds removed



    Preheat oven to 325 F.


    Cut bell peppers in half and place in an greased 8×8 rimmed baking dish cut side up. (If any of the bell pepper halves are leaving to the side, ball up a piece of aluminum foil and place it in the crevices to help keep them sitting up right – this will keep the egg mixture for pouring out).


    Place Italian sausage in a medium pan over medium heat. Break up with a wooden spoon. Once browned, add chopped mushrooms and cook until soft. Lastly, add pizza sauce, basil and a bit of salt and pepper then mix to combine.


    Whisk eggs in a large bowl then pour in Italian sausage mixture and whisk to combine.


    Use a ladle to pour mixture into each pepper half.


    Place in oven to bake for 45-50 minutes, or until egg is completely cooked through and no jiggle remains.


    Let cool slightly before eating!
