I religiously eat scrambled eggs nearly everyday for breakfast. My breakfast typically happens at 11 am since I do intermittent fasting, so it’s most peoples lunchtime. I get asked all the time if I get burned out on scrambled eggs, and the answer is always no. There is so many ways to change up my scrambled eggs, that I miss them when I don’t eat them.

See this post to find out how I make perfectly scrambled eggs, everytime!

But on the weekends I’ll change up my menu, just a little. Especially this weekend because I bought some Cabot Cave Aged White Cheddar at Costco and I wanted to make something with it before the snack monsters in my house ate it all up. The cheese is delicious with a great texture and a perfect bite without being too sharp.

For these bell pepper egg boats, I used Pete & Gerry’s eggs that I bought at Sprouts. I’m becoming a snob with the eggs that I purchase. There is definitely a difference between the dozen of eggs that cost a dollar at the supermarket and the grass-fed, free-range ones that cost a bit more. You can see the difference in the the color of the yolk and taste the difference in the flavor.

Roasting the peppers before adding the eggs is the how the peppers get soft enough to eat with a fork, yet still maintain their shape for the boats.

Cutting the peppers in half is a bit of a trick, because you want the bell peppers to lie as flat as possible on the baking sheet. You don’t want the eggs to slip out.

  • 1/2 cup aged white cheddar cheese, shredded
