I've made these sausage stuffed peppers with my favorite breakfast sausage: Grimm's Fine Foods Breakfast Sausage. What do I love so much about them?
- They taste freaking amazing. Is there really anything more important than that? I think not. I could eat these sausages every day.
- They are gluten, lactose, and soy free and have no MSG added. You also won't find sugar on the list of ingredients, which is rare for sausage. I started eating these sausages when I did my first Whole30 Program as they were the only compliant breakfast sausages I could find. I liked them so much that they became my breakfast sausage of choice.
- Along the same lines, I just love the simple and clean ingredients – pork, water, sea salt, spices, onion powder. Ta da!
- The first thing I noticed when I first cooked these sausages is that there is very minimal fat it the pan when cooking. Bonus!
- They are also made with 100% verified Canadian Pork raised without the use of antibiotics. Yes!
- They are made in British Columbia. That's where I'm from. Go local!
When you're shopping, this is the package you want to look for:
Making Egg and Sausage Stuffed Peppers:
→ The sausage hash comes first. Cook the sausage and onion until both are cooked and the onion turns golden. Add some diced potatoes and garlic. Always garlic. Keep on cooking until the potatoes are soft.
→ Stuff that hash into some bell peppers that you've cut in half and press it down so that it is a little like a crust.
Make Ahead – If you're making these for Christmas (or any other morning), stop right here. Cover the pan and put it in your fridge. When you're ready to bake them, crack some eggs into the peppers while your oven is preheating.
→ Crack an egg into each of the pepper halves. I like to crack them into a small bowl and then pour them into the peppers. It's easier.
→ Pour some water into the pan, cover it, and bake for 20 minutes.
→ EAT! This is the most important step.
The trick to making baked eggs:
Before you head to the kitchen on a sausage stuffed peppers making mission, we need to have a little chat about baked eggs. There are two things I need you to make sure you do here. And not just with this baked egg recipe, with every baked egg recipe you make from here on in.
1. Pour some water into the pan. Not on the peppers. Not on the eggs. Into the pan. Let the peppers go for a little swim.
2. Cover the pan. I like to put a baking sheet on top. You might use aluminum foil. Whatever you do, cover it!
Baked eggs can sometimes get a bad rap for being tough to make. The dry heat of the oven can do funny things to eggs if you don't follow those two directions. Whites can stay runny while the yolks are solid. Sometimes even the tops dry out. It's not fun.
BUT … if you add some water to the pan and cover it, the eggs cook in a little steam room and come out perfect every time.

Hi can these be made with ground beef instead of sausage?
These look delicious.
I think that would be nice! Since sausages spiced, you will probably want to add some spices to your ground beef. Salt and pepper at the very least. 🙂
We loved these! I cooked mine a little longer as we like our eggs less runny and they were perfect. Thank you for the recipe!
So happy you liked the recipe!
These looks delicious! The presentation of stuffed peppers is so pretty and fun! I feel like these could work well as a meal-prep type breakfast that I could make on the weekend and just add the egg and bake one or two as needed during the week.
Absolutely you can! It’s one of my fav things about this recipe. So easy to make ahead!
Awesome looking egg dish, one might add cheese sprinkled atop and chives for garnish. Serve cheese covered refried Beans, homemade ?? salsa, and tortillas, Oh So Yummy! Spicy Bloody Mary’s would be the perfect libation for this delicious and easy breakfast. Thank you, Kristen for sharing these delightful Baked Eggs recipe! ?
Oh girl, you just took this to a whole other awesome level! Yes to all those things. And can I come for breakfast, too?!!
Oh thanks for tip about the water and covering! I make egg cups in Prosciutto a lot for my work, and I’ve encountered the problem of eggs being too dry. Do you think it would work if I put water around the muffin tin I use, and have that in a baking dish so I can cover it? Worried about the Prosciutto not crisping up… will have to experiment!
Hey Carmen! I have a feeling it would work. Maybe try using a large pan to put the muffin tin in and creating a water bath for it – like with pots de creme. If you try it and it works I’d love to hear the results!
Currently trying to figure out what to eat for breakfast and you have my tummy rumbling!! If only I had sausage in the fridge. 🙂
I want to eat these little boats! Beautiful presentation and awesome flavor combo.
Thank you so much! They really are my fav brunch!!
This is such a creative idea and so easy to put together! and they look so beautiful, this is something I really want to make, everything about this recipe just calls my name, great stuff 🙂
Thank you so much!! 🙂
Made these for brunch and they’re so good. Will be making them again. And so happy to find out Grimm’s is local. I had no idea!
I love finding great local companies, too!
Kristen, these look phenomenal! What a great idea – normally I’d chop up the bell pepper to add it to the hash, but this saves that extra step of prep!
Thank you so much! I do the same and thought of that when I was making these. 🙂
We’re planning on making this recipe for Christmas morning so thought we’d give it a go to test it first. They turned out great. Can’t wait to make them again!
Haha I love it! Recipe testing is the best, isn’t it?!
These look yummy! Reminds me of a trip I did to the Balkans. They loved their stuffed peppers over there!
I’ve heard the Balkans are gorgeous! Horray for my peppers reminding you of a fun holiday!
