Baked eggs in peppers

Baked eggs in peppers
  • Serves: 1
  • Prep: 5mins
  • Cook: 20mins


  • 1 red pepper
  • 2 British Lion eggs
  • 2 fistfuls of spinach
  • Salt and pepper to season


  1. Start by preheating your oven to 180C/350F.
  2. Line a baking tray with tin foil or greaseproof paper so the peppers won’t stick during the cooking process, and most importantly so there is less washing up at the end.
  3. Cut your pepper in half, carefully remove the seeds from inside the pepper and discard. Place the peppers on the baking try and leave to one side.
  4. Heat a frying pan on a medium heat and add the spinach. Cook the spinach until wilted and soft, this will happen in a matter of minutes so try to keep your eye on it.
  5. Once the spinach has wilted, share out between the two pepper halves.
  6. Crack one egg into each slice of pepper. Don’t worry if any egg spills over the edge, as long as the yolk stays in the middle.
  7. Season with salt and pepper, a pinch of each should be enough.
  8. Cook in the middle of the pre-heated oven for around 20 minutes or until the whites have set fully then serve immediately.

#eggsmyway #eggs #brunchThe best place to store your eggs is in the fridge. Eggs should be kept at a constant temperature below 20°C, so to avoid temperature fluctuations in a domestic kitchen store them in their box in the fridge. But they are not kept in the fridge in the supermarket we hear you cry! Most modern supermarkets are kept below 20°C so refrigeration isn’t necessary. Keeping your eggs in the fridge at home ensures optimum freshness and food safety which is eggcellent news for any #egghead #tofridgeornottofridge #eggmyths #facts #egghacks #britishlioneggs #factfriday
