  • Recipe

    Preheat the oven to 375°F. Slice peppers in half lengthwise, then using a small knife, carefully remove the seeds and membrane. Arrange peppers cut-side up in a large baking dish. Heat a large skillet on medium-high heat. Add the bacon and cook, stirring often, until crispy. Remove from the pan and drain all put 1 tablespoon of the bacon grease. Add mushrooms, and sauté until tender, about 6-8 minutes. Fold the spinach into the mushrooms, season with salt and pepper and cook until wilted, about 1 minute. Add 1 tablespoon shredded cheese to each halved pepper. Distribute half of the cooked bacon evenly in the peppers. Spoon the cooked vegetables in each pepper, pressing into the bottom of the pepper with the back of the spoon. Carefully crack an egg in the top of each bell pepper. Distribute the remaining cheese and sprinkle with desired about of salt and pepper. Bake uncovered for 25-30 minutes for a runny yolk and 30-35 for a fully cooked yolk. Remove from the oven and garnish with remaining bacon.
