Inside-Out Omelets

Inside-Out Omelets
If you're a regular reader of my blog you know that I love to try unique and interesting recipes that I find on the Internet! Well, this next recipe is just my speed!
The title got my attention and the photo held me there!
What a smart idea to make an egg omelet inside of a green pepper!
The genius behind this recipe is a food blogger named Patty from Cooking on a Budget
My family loved this recipe idea and I loved that I could make omelets for everyone all at one time. These all bake in one tray. Perfect when trying to feed a large group.  We have breakfast for dinner (brinner) once a week, so this was perfect for that! And you can customize each one to suit your families taste. I made mine with bacon bits and lots of cheddar cheese. For my hubby I added chopped green onions. The possibilities are endless!
Serve these with toast or hashbrowns and you have a very hearty meal!
Thank you Patty for a meal I'll make over and over!
I'm posting the recipe as I made it, but also check out the original recipe here.

Inside-Out Omelets

4 small bell peppers - any color, but make sure they're small
8 large eggs
8 tsp. milk
4 Tbls. bacon bits
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
salt & pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Wash the bell peppers and cut off just the tops.
Carefully remove the seeds and membrane without puncturing the peppers.
Sprinkle the inside of each pepper lightly with salt and pepper.
Place all the peppers, cut side up, on a baking dish and bake on middle rack
uncovered for about 10-15 minutes or until they have softened slightly.
Then remove from oven.
In a measuring cup beat 2 eggs with 2 tsp. milk(do not use more than this or eggs will not set up properly), and a pinch each of salt & pepper.
Pour into one pepper and top with 1 Tbls of bacon bits and some cheddar cheese.
Repeat for the remaining peppers.
When all peppers are filled, bake on middle rack uncovered for about 30-35 minutes.
Serve warm.
Try different add-ins like green onions, ham or cooked sausage.
