Quiched Stuffed Peppers

Quiched stuffed peppers

Is quiche a verb? Well, we’re making it one. These Quiched Stuffed Peppers created the new verb. The new stay-at-home brunch staple in our house for sure. Pair this meal with some coffee or a mimosa and it’s the perfect Saturday morning. Well, that and the no work part makes it perfect. We made these two ways, but there is endless varieties for this breakfast dish. Think of any quiche or omelet and try that out in these stuffed peppers.

Every weekend our staple Saturday breakfast is to make big omelets. We try to switch it up as much as possible but we always tend to add peppers. They add that crunch and a burst of fresh flavor but don’t over power the dish. We got to thinking about using the pepper as a shell like a quiche and just like that we quiched a stuffed pepper.

One of our favorite quiches to make for brunch are broccoli and cheddar and southwest styled. Typically if we have ham or bacon we will add that in for some added salty flavors. When making this we wanted to incorporate that salty flavor so instead we made sure to add prosciutto. Bacon or ham will also do the trick but prosciutto is extra salty and really pulls out the flavor of the eggs.

Maybe next we’ll try out Asparagus and Feta Quiche as a stuffed pepper. The peppers provide the perfect crust without the extra carbs. Try out your favorite quiche or omelet in a pepper and let us know what you think!
