Bell Pepper Egg Flowers

Tired of making and eating the same breakfast day after day? Want something easy, beautiful and delicious? Bell Pepper Egg Flowers will put big smiles on your families face!

Cereal, pancakes, oatmeal and omelets.…breakfast can feel like one big "same old, same old" after a while. If you're sick of making your normal breakfast rotation I bet your family feels the same way about eating it. Whenever I whip up these Bell Pepper Egg Flowers in the morning to my kids it's like I bought a brand new car. It's such a welcome novelty that my little guys go nuts with excitement! They both adore bell peppers and by adding a perfectly cooked egg and a sprinkle of parmesan cheese on top, this breakfast treat is an easy way to get protein and even a bit of veggies into my family's bodies first thing in the morning.

Remember that FTD Mother's Day slogan, "say it with flowers"? Well, after watching your kids make all gone with this recipe I think you'll agree that roses and tulips aren't the only flowers that can make a mom happy!

    Hmmm, my son doesn't like bell peppers but I wonder if this would work if I cooked them in a cookie cutter. I'd have to oil the cutter first of course. Hmmm...

      Yes! It will work in a cookie cutter if you grease it well and be super careful (use tongs) when you slide it off the egg.

    Great idea!! My daughter loves peppers. She likes her eggs scrambled. Could I pour scrambled eggs into the pepper flowers?

    • Emily

      Yes! Scrambling the egg worked perfectly for me! Just pour it right in. :)
