Eggs with Peppers & Goat Cheese

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day yet we often take it for granted. These eggs with peppers and goat cheese are incredibly delicious and at the same time super nutritious and easy to make. The peppers provide Vitamin C, the eggs provide protein and the goat cheese provides calcium. Serve with toast and a serving of fruit and you are ready to start your day just right. My friend and I have this sometimes even for lunch because it is that good. If you don't like goat cheese, try this recipe with good qality feta. Enjoy! 

Makes 2 servings 


5 - eggs (you may do just 5 egg whites as well)

5 - mini sweet peppers,chopped or sliced  

3oz - goat cheese, crumbled 

1 teaspoon + 1 tablespoon - olive oil 

salt and pepper to taste 


Fry the peppers on medium heat with 1 teaspoon olive oil, cover for best results. Peppers are done when they are tender and you notice the skin of the pepper is starting to brown. 

Take pan off heat and turn heat to low. Allow a minute or two to cool off. Scramble the eggs in a bowl. Do not over scramble.

 Add 1 tablespoon of olive oil, salt and pepper to the peppers and mix. Return to heat and add the eggs. Fry eggs and peppers until eggs are almost done. Add the goat cheese and mix while scraping the bottom of the pan. Eggs are ready when cheese is mixed well. You may add more salt or pepper if needed. Garnish with a little more goat cheese if desired. Enjoy this healthy breakfast!
