Next time you oversleep and want to combat those judgmental eyes that stare you down for eating breakfast after 10:30am, just stare back at them and silently mouth the word, “Brunch”; and then whip up this little number and show them just how much pizazz you and your bell pepper have.

Bell-Pepper-Brunch-9

Prep Time: 3 min      Cook Time: 20 min +

Ingredients:

  • 1 Bell Pepper (Red)
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 oz Chorizo Sausage
  • 3 oz of Deli Meat (Cajun Turkey)

Directions:

  1. Cut off a section of your pepper so that it’s shaped like a bowl.
  2. Place the pepper on an oven-safe Cast Iron Skillet; and pop into a pre-heated oven. Broil at 400 for like 5-10 minutes (or until the outside of the pepper begins to blister).
  3. Pull the Cast Iron Skillet out and put it on the stove over medium (medium-low) heat.
  4. With the pepper pushed to the side, cook the chorizo for 3 minutes and then crack an egg an top of the cooking chorizo.
  5. Stir/Mix occasionally to cook evenly.
  6. While the egg and chorizo are finishing throw the deli meat of your choice (I recommend cajun turkey or southwest chicken breast) into the pan to sort of fry/cook as well.
    • Note: This deli meat is already cooked, so you really just want to warm it up and maybe sear parts of it for flavor/texture.
  7. Gather the chorizo, egg, and meat together and stuff it into the pepper (which should still be on the pan).
  8. Serve hot and enjoy!

Tips & Tricks:

  • If you have a smoker; throw a pepper or too into the smoker next time you smoke your meat. Then use them in this recipe and skip the step in the oven.
  • This recipe is a bit healthier if you don’t cook the pepper, and you trade chorizo for some spicy seasonings in the eggs.
  • You could serve this with chips and salsa or some fresh tropical fruit (think mangos).
