This is the Best Bell Pepper Egg Breakfast!

Bell Pepper Egg Breakfast Recipe made with bell peppers rounds cut simulating a flower, eggs and served with a salsa verde or red Mexican salsa. Paired with buttered toast.

Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. The meal you choose is what is going to set how the day will go. I like to opt for wholesome options that are not only satisfying but delicious.

Fresh From Florida Bell Peppers are now in season. They come in yellow, green, and bright orange colors.

We chose Florida bell peppers to make a fabulous bell pepper egg breakfast inspired in the classic Mexican ranchero eggs with a twist. Florida has a fantastic array of produce and fruits that enhance the meals I serve my family as I am using seasonal and fresh ingredients grown in my state.

The recipe ingredients are green Florida bell peppers and fresh farm eggs.

Supporting local farmers is a good idea as this helps the local economy as well as assures a good supply of fresh options we can bring to the table. Plus Florida farmers make it easy for us to eat fresh produce too.

Florida farmers do take pride in cultivating and taking care of the fields by practicing sustainability and delivering the best seasonal produce possible at the correct price and available when the fruits and veggies are at the peak of the season.
