When peppers are on sale, it makes this dish that much better! It's the perfect side for adding that homemade touch to any meal.

What You'll Need

  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 1/2 cup crumbled fresh bread crumbs
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon butter

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 2-quart baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine all ingredients except butter; pour mixture into prepared baking dish. Dot with butter.
  3. Bake 50 to 55 minutes, or until slightly brown and set.


  • This is a great, easy side dish. For a lighter-style treat, you can use low-fat cheese, 2% milk, a lighter-type bread for bread crumbs, less salt, or even omit the egg yolk.

What a festive and colorful way to eat your veggies! And since the peppers get sweeter as they cook and it is cheesy, the kids won't mind eating this either! I might even serve this stuff alongside some eggs and breakfast style chicken sausage and eat it for breakfast! A great healthy way to start the day.

very good & easy
